Together we are building the Collective Good
OUR COLLECTIVE MISSION
To revolutionize global travel through a collection of dynamic destination retreats and enriching experiences, connecting person, community, and environment.
OUR REASON FOR BEING
We started Collective Retreats to help people experience travel the way it should be—as a way to connect. Beginning with our first retreat, we took inspiration from the mountains and their raw beauty, as well as our own experiences traveling and connecting with people and places over the years.
We aim to create transformative moments and a way of traveling that would provide connection and meaning. Luxury coexists with ruggedness, fine dining happens under the stars, and our guests connect deeply to a magical place, to those around them, and to themselves.
We aspire to return travel to what it should be—a way of connecting to each other and to our natural world. And the foundation of all of this is our commitment to safeguarding these destinations, in form and spirit, for generations of travelers to come.
“Collective Retreats” references more than our collection of destination retreats. “Collective” comes from our core belief that we’re inextricably tied to each other and to our world, and that travel is the way we experience, understand, and deepen that connection. “Retreat” is rooted in the idea that travel leads us to a more grounded and true version of ourselves. When you bring these two ideas together—exploration to foster deeper connection—you have the spirit of Collective Retreats.
OUR VALUES & ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP
Our values reflect who we are and what we believe in. We’re a team of outdoor explorers and travelers driven by a desire to help others experience the world the way we have.
We share a love and respect of wild and beautiful places, and know that that demands participation in the ongoing fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. We also know that travel, especially luxury travel, creates pollution as a by-product. That’s why we work steadily to reduce those harms and practice the most clean and environmentally friendly hospitality we can.
