Adventure travel is transformative by nature. By taking you beyond your comfort zone, shifting perspectives, the traveler and the planet move toward a higher consciousness. Transformational travel is an embrace of this ethos. It’s about accepting the call of adventure, traveling with intention, raising your awareness and allowing the unknown to drive personal growth and global change.
A penchant for innovation, unquenchable entrepreneurial spirit, tenacious ambition, and genuine personality have resulted in Jake being known as a “disruptor” in the travel space. Jake aims to inspire a purpose-driven team that is world renowned for providing life enriching journeys that nourish the soul, restore sense of self, and cultivates a deeper connection with the planet, our communities, our home.
