There have been so many inspiring and amazing professionals who we’ve chatted with the last 5 years since Remote Year started; Many who wanted to join, but they couldn’t do Remote Year Itineraries due to their busy schedules or constraints at home. They want to see inspiring places, be a part of a community of professionals and experience a work and travel program but they have restrictions that allow them to only go for a month at a time: a dog at home, investors they have to meet, in person clients, children, dogs, etc. Is this you too? Then Destinations was created for you :)

This is very different than a vacation, you can expect your fellow community members to be working, which is why we provide 24/7 access to a Remote Year workspace. Remote Year is a work and travel program so we strongly encourage all of our participants to be in professional pursuit while on program. While we most participants come with their full-time job, freelance work, or business, new ventures or passion projects such as writing a book, starting a business, etc. are also ideal candidates to join.
Our typical accommodations will be shared living situations (usually 2-3 bedroom apartments) where you will always have a private room to yourself! Bathrooms are never shared with more than 1 person. Living with your fellow community members is an amazing way to build deeper relationships with your community members. A member of the Remote Year staff will collect your living preferences to help select the best apartment and roommate for you. If you are interested in living alone, you will have the option to upgrade to a 1 bedroom apartment for an additional fee. You will receive the option to upgrade during your Onboarding process.
Our 2020 Destinations include some amazing cities! You could escape to Cape Town, Kyoto, Medellin and Split. Schedule a call to find out about what dates these program start.
