Travel can be a rewarding and transformational experience. When you get out of your head, out of your comfort zones, and into the world, amazing things tend to happen: Perspectives shift, creativity is unleashed, and things that once seemed like insurmountable challenges become incredible opportunities for growth. To facilitate those transformations, every Muddy Shoe Adventure includes a handcrafted combination of:



Challenging Physical Adventures


Authentic Cultural Experiences


Inspirational Group Discussions


Throughout the program, you will be led on a journey of personal exploration, discovery, and transformation by one of our incredible program leaders. Your physical adventures and cultural experiences will be the catalysts for lively and inspired discussions. Daily workshops and group conversations will help you reflect on what you are learning from your adventures. Time for personal reflection will leave you feeling rejuvenated and re-energized. And optional one-on-one coaching sessions with your program leader will help you craft the perfect plan to kick-start the next chapter of your life!

Whether you are looking for ways to bring more balance into your life, want to create your own passion project, or are considering making a significant career transition, our programs can help you achieve all of your goals! 


Because we've been where you are now: We've had the tough jobs and the challenging bosses. We've felt trapped and frustrated and struggled to find purpose and meaning in life and in our work. We've done the existential crisis / freakout / OMG-I'm-going-to-work-in-a-cubicle-for-the-rest-of-my-miserable-little-existence thing ... Trust us, it wasn't pretty. 

We also took the time to do our own self work. We traveled the world looking for answers. We pushed our comfort zones, took risks, and challenged ourselves to move beyond our fears and limiting beliefs to see what was really possible for us. We asked ourselves important questions and discovered that the answers we were seeking were inside us the whole time. In doing so, we got clear on who we are, what we want, and how we were going to make it happen. We found our passions and followed our bliss. We chose the paths less traveled, faced our greatest fears with courage, understood that imperfect action trumps perfect inaction every time, stepped into our power in order to make our dreams a reality, and came out the other side happy, fulfilled, and inspired. And we can help you do the same.
