Travel, at its roots, is about exploration ...

It's about adventuring off into the unknown, exploring the world and ourselves, and being open to whatever it is that we find … It’s about connecting with new people, places, and cultures and wrestling with ideas and perspectives and beliefs that simultaneously inspire us and challenge us to our core ... It’s about being awed by the beauty of nature and feeling that sense of being so small (yet so powerful) … It's about reconnecting with ourselves so that we can live with more meaning, purpose, and intention … and make a lasting impact in the world. 

Are You Ready to Journey into the Unknown?



Travel that Transforms.

We handcraft travel experiences that focus as much on the inner journey (of learning and growth and why you are traveling and how you can travel deeper and more mindfully) as they do on the outer journey (things like where you go and what you do there). And so while traveling with Explorer X, you will stay in amazing local lodges and hotels, indulge in the incredible locally grown food and wine, take stunning photographs, have once-in-a-lifetime experiences and adventures, develop new friendships, and make memories that last a lifetime. But we will also invite you to go on an equally powerful inner Journey that we hope will allow you to better understand yourself, reconnect with your passions and your dreams, and re-kindle the spirit that burns deep with inside each of us. Travel builds compassion, understanding, empathy, and awareness. It is the ultimate tool for growth, learning, and global citizenry — something we desperately need these days! — and (hopefully) inspires us to take purposeful action in our lives.

Our custom travel experiences and small group adventures will take you to some of the world's most incredible destinations and landscapes and into its most amazing and unique cultures. They will challenge you to get curious, put you face-to-face with contemporary issues and ancient truths, and invite you on both an inner and outer journey of discovery and exploration. Of course, you won’t do this alone. Your Travel Mentor will support and guide you before, during, and after your Journey as you use your adventures as catalysts for shifting perspectives, transforming your life, and creating real change in the world.

Are you ready to Journey into the Unknown? If so, we invite you to connect with us to begin your Hero’s Journey.

Why Travel with Explorer X

There are so many things that make traveling with Explorer X an eXtraordinary experience ... Here are the 3 that we are most proud of:

1. Collaborative Travel Design Process

Our collaborative travel design process allows you to work hand-in-hand with a Travel Mentor as together you craft a life-changing travel experience. Along the way, you'll be invited to play an active role in the design of your itinerary and will be in constant communication with your Travel Mentor.

2. Hand-Crafted Itineraries

After you and your Travel Mentor have sketched out your perfect adventure, they'll get to work handcrafting your Journey. Our Travel Mentors work closely with trusted local accommodation providers, guides, and tour operators to ensure the perfect mixture of some of the classic experiences of each destination as well as a few secret, off-the-beaten-path adventures that most other travelers never get to experience! 

3. Learn How to 'Travel Like a Hero'

In addition to helping build the perfect travel experience for you, your Travel Mentor will also guide and support you in 'Traveling Like a HERO' and making the most of your travel experience. By engaging with you in a series of powerful conversations before, during, and even after your Journey, your Travel Mentor will help you bring more intention, purpose, and mindfulness to your travel experience and support you in using your adventures to make changes — big OR small — in your life as a result!
