What The?! Here’s Why We Created Epic Vacay:

We want to spark true joy in people’s lives. Experiences are so much more important than THINGS. You feel us? Yeah? Good!

The problem we want to solve is this: People are so stressed out and they’re not taking advantage of their precious vacation time. (The average American uses less than half of his or her vacay days each year. That’s sad…) Taking a vacay gives you proven benefits including reduced stress, increased creativity and improved sleep quality. We want to see more people enjoying the advantages to their health, success and life fulfillment that travel brings.

Maybe you want to go on an epic trip this year, but you’re too busy to plan it. That’s where we come in. Epic Vacay is a boutique concierge retreat team that takes the stress out of planning the coolest vacation for you! You’ll have experiences you’ll remember forever and forge friendships that will inspire you.

We’ve taken retreats all over the world (the Galapagos, Tulum, Tuscany, Kenya), and we can honestly say that — in addition to exploring incredible places and helping us recharge and relax — these trips have changed and enriched our lives in unbelievable ways! We’ve made deep friendships that have lasted for years with attendees from all over the world and local people in every destination. If you’re curious about who we are, peep in on our dream team.
