The coolest, most creative, easiest, and safest way to travel
The coolest, most creative, easiest, and safest way to travel. Having local City Managers in each location was an amazing way to immerse ourselves authentically, and the people you meet during your travels are kind, resourceful, respectful, adventurous, and just plain fun! I would recommend Remote Year 10,000 times over.Emile
Local Experiences as unforgettable as Africa

They’re here to help you settle into each city while discovering local culture and traditions along the way. Wondering how to say hello in Senegal? We'll help! Searching for the best braai (South African BBQ) in town? Natalie (Cape Town) has a rec. You’ll also have a dedicated Community Leader like Alejandro (Mexico) or Thega (USA) traveling alongside you, supporting you every step of your 4-month Journey.
Swap your rent for the adventure of a lifetime.
Why pay rent when you could use that same money to experience a once-in-a-lifetime Journey? We’ve done the math, and we’re pretty sure you’ll agree the second you spot your first elephant, volcano, or white sand beach. And don’t even get us started on the food.
