Spending time in another culture and in nature opens the mind. A new surrounding opens new perspectives. Physical movement by hiking through the Sierra Nevada will increase the movement of your ideas. With a maximum of 10 participants, you will have individualized coaching as needed.

Slow down to agile up

Time to clear your mind, move your body and reflect on your journey. Learn and practice new frameworks that will help you work with more purpose and agility. Listen and explore with others who are also committed to discovering and living their purpose.

Why is discovering your purpose so important?

  • It is the foundation for being both happy and successful
  • Live and work according to your true essence
  • Feel aligned and connected while having impact that gives you meaning
  • Increase your agility amidst the complex around you
  • Create the conditions for flow and creativity
  • Let yourself dream and get clear about your next steps
  • Knowing your purpose creates space to work well with others

You can choose where to put your own focus. If you need time for yourself, it’s ok. If the group can help you, that’s ok too.

Why would you join this trip?

Well, good questions. We’ve listed some of the reasons why:

Develop yourself

Because you’re looking for the right path in life. Or confirm that you are already there. Because you want to discover your role in impacting this world. A LEAP-trip gives you clarity and make you aware of the bigger potential.

A new perspective

Because sometimes you need to step out of your own, safe environment to take some real steps. Another country, culture and other people can help you find a new perspective. About yourself, your life and the world around you.


Because you think something new and uncharted is interesting; because you’re curious about LEAP, about a new way to travel and about creating more awareness in yourself.

A new way to travel

Because you want to be part of, as we do at Riksja Travel, a much larger journey. We believe we are on the brink of a new era, in which working from your potential and own source of wisdom is essential. LEAP is our contribution to that and we hope you’d like to make this journey with us.
