Dolomites

ITALIAN DOLOMITES

TIMELESS MAJESTY

Join us in the heart of summer as we disappear into the untouched sweeping wilderness of the Dolomites. These jagged peaks in Northern Italy are infamous for being some of the most beautiful mountain ranges on Earth, with spectacular vertical pinnacles, twisting spires and ethereal heights. We’ll be venturing deep into the isolated Marmole group, and will spend two nights camping out in the forest under the open stars.

COSTA CAREYES

If you haven’t heard of Costa Careyes before, it’s because the people who go there like to keep it that way. Founded in the 1970s as a luxury bohemian enclave, Careyes is located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico and is defined by a rare energy that permeates every corner. Its magic lies in the founding members’ sensibilities in combining the raw power of pristine nature with whimsical villas and an understated charm.

Careyes is a place infamous for being closed off to the outside world, accessible only to those with an insider’s key and a desire to get off the grid completely.

This journey features:

- Immersion in the wild landscapes of the Pacific swell and facilitated nature connection workshops

- Exhilarating boat rides exploring the coast and its hidden beaches

- Introducing baby turtles into the rhythmic waves of the Pacific, hopping on a surfboard to catch the coast’s swell and riding along empty expanses of beach on horseback

- Sunset ceremonies and immersions in surrealist art-scapes

- Delicious local Mexican cuisine
