Small Groups ... Big Adventures!

Explorer X's Muddy Shoe Adventures (MSA) are handcrafted, life-changing, small-group adventures held in the world's most incredible and inspiring destinations. 

Combining exciting physical activities with immersive cultural experiences and inspirational group discussions, every Muddy Shoe Adventure is an opportunity to travel in a fun yet meaningful way with other amazing people. Built around Joseph Campbell's concept of 'The Hero's Journey,' you’ll be supported throughout your Journey by a Program Leader as you explore the world, connect with new people, places, ideas, and perspectives, discuss and learn from your experiences, and begin applying what you are learning to your life. Along the way, you will:

  • Challenge yourself with exciting adventure activities

  • Immerse yourself in and learn about different cultures

  • Indulge in healthy, delicious, and local food and drink

  • Sleep in locally-owned and operated hotels and lodges

  • Connect with new people, places, perspectives, & ideas

  • Engage in informal yet inspirational group conversations

  • Take much-needed time to reconnect with yourself

How Muddy Shoe Adventures Work

All Muddy Shoe Adventures follow a three-part process that we call Your Hero's Journey. This process not only helps build community for you and your fellow travelers, but it also helps ensure that your adventure is truly a life-changing one for you! 



Your Hero's Journey begins before you even leave home: In the weeks and months leading up to your Adventure, you'll join your fellow travelers and MSA Program Leader in series of calls designed to get you prepared for your life-changing adventure!




Throughout the adventure, your Travel Mentor will use the many adventures and experiences you have as catalysts for lively and inspired discussions and conversations as you go on a journey of personal exploration and discovery. 



Just because the Adventure is over doesn't mean the Journey ends! On this month-long post-adventure process, you'll work with your new friends and your Travel Mentor as you return home and begin to make powerful changes in your life.
