Small Groups ... Big Adventures!

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

Traveling with other people — even those we don’t know well when we start out on our Journey — can be a profound and life-changing experience. There is a special power when a group of like-minded, passionate, and adventurous people get together to explore both the world and themselves, engaging deeply in the experience and supporting one another in doing the same. Which is why we developed the Muddy Shoe Adventures series of scheduled departure small-group trips. Every Muddy Shoe Adventure is an opportunity for you to travel the world in a fun yet meaningful way with other amazing people. Along the way, you will be invited to:

  • 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

  • Learn from local historians, artists, and spiritual leaders

  • Take much-needed time to reconnect with yourself

The beating heart of these Adventures are the conversations that you will have with local people and with your fellow travelers and Program Leader. As you share experiences, ideas, and perspectives, you’ll be challenged to reconsider long-held beliefs about yourself and others, invited to expand your horizons, and inspired to begin taking purposeful action in your life!

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.
