Does your holiday include submerging yourself into an icy lake before sunrise?
We are fortunate to have @fraser.beck.breathe guiding us through numerous workshops that help calm the mind and body. But most importantly the knowledge to use these tools when they return home from the retreat.

Everything we do on our retreats has purpose which gives more depth and meaning to the experience as a whole. It’s all about intent. How do we frame our circumstances that we’re in or about to enter is really important in regard to how we deal with them. 

#Gratitude
There’s honestly nothing quite like being nestled within pristine New Zealand landscape and spending two hours swapping between yoga, sauna, ice water & Arepa by the fire.

Why did you start Adventure 365?

“Give someone a fish, they’ll be hungry tomorrow, teach someone how to fish, they’ll be fed for life” 

This retreat draws on many aspects of my life that I’ve endured, experienced and loved. Giving scope to a culmination of elements that provide our guests various avenues to leave feeling empowered. Taking home with them practical tools, perspectives and experience to help improve their lives on all fronts. 

What are you looking forward to the most?

Though the list is long. I can’t wait to experience the epic hikes together. Particularly for those who haven’t done much hiking or have hiked in New Zealand. It’s going to be really special.

Why do you work with Adventure 365?

The team, the place, the purpose 100% resonates with me.

How does your role impact our guests' experience?

I believe my passion for adventure, experience in the mountains & love for New Zealand will be contagious. We definitely will be making the most of every second when we’re over there. 

What are you looking forward to the most?

It’s really hard to pinpoint one aspect. I am looking forward to stepping off the plane at Queenstown airport and seeing the huge mountain ranges and breathing the fresh NZ air into my lungs!

Why do you work with Adventure 365?

It aligns with my passions: cooking, traveling, being outdoors, hiking, meeting like minded people, connection and mindfulness. I believe you should love the work you do, surround yourself with the best possible team and to me this is Adventure 365.

How does your role impact our guests' experience?

What you eat in a day has a massive impact on how you feel, so my goal is to fill you with delicious food that keeps you energised (and not hangry!) 
I love to chat about all things cooking/food and hope to create an experience every time you eat. I ultimately want you to leave the retreat feeling inspired and to have enjoyed every meal/chat around the kitchen bench or table. 

What are you looking forward to the most?

It makes me so happy to be traveling to a new place, meeting new people and being able to not only share my passion for cooking but have everyone enjoy those meals together.

Manuel Freudenmann

Why do you work with Adventure 365?

Because adventure 365 has an approach to life that I completely aligned too. From adventures, hikes, health, exploration, mental growth and connection. The team at adventure 365 is such a unique and talented group, inspiring each other to push ourselves that little bit further.

How does your role impact our guests' experience?

Sharing memories! I get to provide them memories and captured memories (the hard, the easy, the funny, the everything in between). I am part of the community and group… not just an outsider. I join you on every adventure. So, you never feel like something will be missed if you don’t have your phone ready.

What are you looking forward to the most?

I look forward to sharing this humbling adventure with the guests. To capture them in their beautiful, raw and inspiring moments! Hiking to the top of a mountain, breaking mental barriers, sharing moments with other guests. I’m honoured to take photo and film of this and share it with our guests.

Why do you work with Adventure 365?

I work with Adventure 365 because I feel as though I align with the brand’s identity and goals for creating unique and rewarding experiences for their participants.
I love traveling, meeting new people, creating new memories and capturing stories.

How does your role impact our guests' experience?

My role impacts the guest experience by being a fellow adventurer, someone else to share the highs and lows of the days with as well as helping out wherever I can and
being another point of contact for anything that a guest may need assistance with. Above all, I’m excited to capture moments that guests can relive. Let’s go!

What are you looking forward to the most?

I most look forward to meeting new people, experiencing new places and getting to capture the magic.

Fraser Beck

Why did you join the team?

The opportunity to create positive experiences that lead to personal transformation and long-lasting behaviour change is really what inspired me to work with Andrew and all of the team at Adv365. Andrew, Matty and the rest of the team at Adventure 365 also do an amazing job of creating a team dynamic that is fun and professional in nature whilst also feeling like a strong family unit. Arohanui (much love)!

What are you looking forward to the most?

My role as a yoga teacher and breathwork guide means that I create spaces that help guests calm the fluctuations of their minds and begin the self-inquiry that is often needed for personal growth.

Whether guests have come on retreat with a focus on healing and transformation, or simply to relax and have fun, they are often surprised by the power of the practices and are left with an ability to connect with their innate wisdom.

How does your role impact our guests' experience?

Researching the science of breathing in relation to every dimension of health and wellbeing has been a constant for me over the last decade. I always look forward to the opportunity to plant seeds in the minds of guests that cultivate more awareness and understanding of this fascinating and often underestimated topic.

And of course, I look forward to every time the ADV365 team assembles. We always know something exciting is going to happen when we get together and we are working our way to be a global leader in the wellbeing retreat space.

The Adventure 365 retreat is an experience of a lifetime!! Andrew and the team (Matt, Manuel, Ash and Justin) are the people bringing this retreat to a high standard, their skill sets and passion are amazing however it is their synergy that makes this retreat successful. Leading up to the retreat I was apprehensive on what was to come and opening up to strangers I have never met. By the end of the retreat I have become the best version of myself and met great like minded people who supported and grew with me. The adventures were amazing, however it was the people who encapsulated my whole adventure experience from achieving physical challenges to overcoming mental barriers. I highly recommend Adventure 365 retreat to anyone wanting to meet like minded people, to challenge themselves and self-develop to better their own quality of life. This is a unique retreat that cannot be replicated due to the purpose driven people running the show. I will definitely be signing up to the next retreats as this bought more than 9 days of value, it is a lifetime of value 😊

It’s taken me a few days to write this review, as I am struggling to find the words for how incredible and impactful the New Years retreat was for me. From the minute we were collected by Andrew and Matt; I knew the retreat experience and the people sharing the journey were going to be a pivotal moment in my life. It is so hard to put into a few words how amazing the retreat was. From the accommodation, to the activities, to the food and Andrew’s powerful words, you’re left in a constant state of awe and left wanting for nothing. Through support from the 365 team and others sharing the retreat experience, you achieve things that you never thought possible and share in powerful and life changing moments together. There were many people on our retreat that have previously been on Andrew’s retreats and I can assure you I too will be one of those the next chance I get. If you are considering a retreat, for any reason at all - DO IT, and hopefully I get to share the experience with you!! If you are looking for fun filled activites with some chill times in between, this is the best retreat for you.

I recently had the pleasure of embarking on an adventure with Adventure365, and I must say it was an experience of a lifetime. From start to finish, they exceeded my expectations and left me with memories that will last forever. One aspect that truly stood out was the attention to detail. Adventure365 took care of every little thing, from providing airport pick ups to organizing comfortable accommodations with breathtaking views & delicious meals. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed, allowing us to fully focus on enjoying the adventure. Thank you Team, and really looking forward to next one !!!

Going into Adventure 365 I knew that it was going to be challenging and I knew that I was going to come out with a more than amazing experience and it was going to meet my expectations. After the 9 days with Pap and his team I came out of it with friendships, a deeper understanding of life, the realisation of what I can achieve as a person and the ability to overcome fears. Set in an amazing environment that is New Zealand and the organisation of the team to ensure that everything went smoothly I came out with more than exceeded expectations. Usually when explaining holidays and experiences to family, friends and colleagues, they say they get it, understand it or have experienced something similar and kind of get it, however even though many people have been to New Zealand with groups of people, as the surfing saying goes (put into adventure365 terminology) "only an Adventure365er knows the feeling" I couldn't recommend this trip highly enough to anyone and everyone. See you all at the next retreat!!!

It’s really hard to summarise the Adventure 365 retreat because it was FULL of such unique, diverse and unforgettable experiences. It gave each of the guests the opportunity to experience what it’s like to live life to the full - from the nourishing food to the conquering of physical challenges (the hikes were AMAZING!) to the breathtaking landscape to the authentic connections with like-minded people to the deeper understanding of oneself… It showed each of us what a fulfilling life can look and feel like so that we can feel empowered to create it for ourselves post-retreat. The Adventure 365 team were also absolutely phenomenal - it was such a pleasure to see their passion and purpose coming alive from the moment the retreat began. I’ll be jumping straight onto the waitlist for their next retreats because once you’ve experienced something as high quality as this, you can’t not do it again!

To put it simply - being away for 9 days with Adventure 365 changed my life. It is so much more than just an adventure retreat. It is uplifting and inspiring, and being surrounded by 20 of the greatest humans was an incredible way to start the year. Pap and the team bring so much love and energy to the retreat and I will never forget the incredible feelings I experienced being a part of it all. I cannot wait to head back for more of the same goodness 🙌🏼

Nothing but the best from Paps, Matty, Manuel, Justin, Ash, Fraser and everyone who is in the Adventure 365 team! Each of them put their heart and soul into the week and add such value in their own unique way! I turned 29 whilst in NZ, experienced NYE from the top of a mountain peak where I got to witness incredible fireworks and then had my best ever first week of a year! All of the activities are incredible, the accomodation is luxurious, the food is delicious and nutritious, the itinerary is perfectly structured... but it's the people, the vibe and the community that has the impact! Within 24 hours this insanely hilarious, kind hearted and amazing group of strangers became a family! Love it and I'll be back xxx
