Retreat for remote workers
A 2 week remote work adventure in Portugal with a community of people you’re going to miss

OKT 16 — OKT 29, 2023

Caravansary is a community of like-minded people from all over the world who work remotely, enjoy adventures and have fun together and value meaningful connections. Since 2016 we have already hosted 450+ sessions in 17 countries.
unique atmosphere
What is there for you on Caravansary?
Like-minded people
Caravansary is people. Our retreats are made up of remote workers, freelancers and enterpreneurs from all over the world who passed an online interview with members of our team. It means that in a 2-week retreat you will meet 8−12 people with the same values and outlook. Bright eyes, open hearts and positive jokes are always here!
Remote work from another country
Show new locations to your laptop and get inspired by the new environment yourself! It’s better than a vacation because you can do what you love and have a fresh look at your working process.
Everyday events
We believe that each experience gets better if it’s not forced but organized together. That’s why our lineup is always co-created by all the participants. There’s always much space for meaningful communication — both face to face and in a group.

Just imagine: yoga or jogging in the morning, TED lectures in the evening, and on Saturdays — hiking together or crazy surfing. Be sure that during a Caravan retreat you’ll take part in a dozen unforgettable events.
Check out how usual day at Caravansary looks like
7:30 AM — waking up, morning yoga and meditation with a view
9:00 AM — breakfast together, story from one of the participants about his experience of the ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro
10:00 AM — 5:00 PM — coworking time
6:00 PM — dinner together, game on a connection in the group to know each other better
7:00 PM — workshop from a participant on cheap traveling around the world
7:30 PM — mastermind, coming up with ideas on how to balance work and adventures
9:00 PM — check-in — sharing impressions of the day
Our facilitators will make sure everyone is comfortable with the number of events. This is one example of one day's schedule. Each day is unique as well as every two-week Caravansary stay.
What to expect
WHO CARAVANERS ARE
Digital nomads and wannabes
Some of the caravaners coming to our retreat are experienced digital nomads — they know how to travel and continue working on their projects from any part in the world. Often digital nomad life starts by joining our two-week retreats because Caravansary is a place where you can try and decide whether this path suits you. And our community helps by showing a way to it and sharing experiences.
Remote workers
Non-classic nomads but those who can work remotely and who are looking for new experiences, reboot without taking a break from work and soft-skills developing. Our retreat opens new perspectives, gives emotions and connections with people who have similar life values.
Freelancers & Entrepreneurs
Self-made ambitious hard workers who value their time. They come to Caravansary for networking, new ideas and inspiration. They got knowledge and experience exchange on retreats and afterwards — as you stay in the community after the retreat itself.

FEEDBACK
what do cARAVANERS say about us
FAQ
How tight is the schedule? Will I have free time?
Yes. We build a program together depending on the needs and schedules of participants. But if you need more free time, we’ll find it for you.
Who will be there on a Caravan? Who are these people?
Our community is made of open people looking for meaningful connections, interested in various activities and spheres of life, and keen on adventures. These people are ready to share their experiences and take an active part in events — IT specialists, bloggers, experts, artists, designers, psychologists, and many others. Each Caravan is unique because of the people who join it.
What’s included in the price?
Accommodation for 2 weeks, the first common dinner, Caravan events like workshops, TED lectures, and masterminds. WiFi, cleaning.
I’ve booked a place with a 50% prepayment, but now I want to join another Caravan. Can I do it?
Yes, it’s possible if you tell us about it 2 weeks in advance.
How does the return policy work?
If you want to return the payment 1 month before the Caravan, we return 100% of the prepayment and give you an opportunity to use the prepayment for another retreat later. If you want to return the prepayment 2−4 weeks before the Caravan, you get a 50% return or you can use it for another retreat later. If it happens less than 2 weeks before the Caravan, we don’t return the prepayment because we can’t find another new participant.
I can rent a house myself. Why do I need to go to Caravansary?
Caravansary isn’t just about a comfortable house in another country. Its core is meaningful connections that we create together. It helps you build your network, exchange professional and personal experience, improve soft skills both for your CV and life, and get new impressions to recharge yourself emotionally.
Will I be able to work full time during the session?
Yes, our schedule is designed with full time remote workers in mind. Our common meetings happen in the mornings and evenings, and everything in between (from 10 am to 5−6 pm) is your time to get things done.
Can I join caravansary if I don’t work remotely or have my own project?
It’s possible, but it’s important to remember that Caravansary is not designed as a vacation. It’s an immersive, collaborative experience that helps you work on your goals while socializing with other remote workers. However, If you're currently studying online, are actively searching for a new job or are in a big transition in your life, or simply a photographer that has just started on creating a personal blog - that counts as a 'project' and you are more than welcome to join Caravansary Network.
Is it possible to stay for a shorter/ longer period?
Caravansary has a program and the idea is that the whole group arrives and leaves the house according to the schedule. This allows us to create an amazing group dynamic that we cherish. So the experience itself always takes two weeks. However you are more than welcome to book two Caravans in a row in a case when we have it scheduled. If you’d like to do so please mention it to our manager on the call or check with one of the facilitators during Caravan.
Can I come with a friend / relative/ partner?
Yes, but they will need to apply separately and join a call with one of our team members as well (just like you).
do you have covid-19 protocols in place?
Yes, we understand that hosting a getaway for remote workers amid a worldwide pandemic is not a stroll in the park. However, we’ve already hosted 50+ Caravans in 7 countries since July 2020 and are taking all the necessary precautions to make your trip as safe as possible.

We’re kindly asking everyone who is coming to start observing their health 10 days before arrival
