WE ARE AVNEA
AVNEA translates to the ancient greek word EUNOIA.
pronounced as avnea
Which means ''a beautiful mind and good spirit''
Expanding ones beautiful mind is what we aim for with our trips.
How it all started
After many adventures around the world and over 10 years of (solo) travel experiences, AVNEA’s founder Lotus felt the need to share her unique finds with others. Bringing people together while exploring the world was what she envisioned. AVNEA’S first seeds were planted and trips were created. In the meantime, Lotus became fully nomadic herself and left everything behind in Amsterdam to live a more free and fulfilling life.
Realising and experiencing the benefits of travel for our wellbeing and feeling a call to more meaningful connections and experiences, AVNEA was born.
Within the trips we create at AVNEA, we aim to make beautiful connections, work together with locals and stay far away from mainstream tourist destinations.
At Avnea, every trip has a purpose
Whether it’s to get out of your comfort zone, reconnect with nature, learn a new skill or find a better work life balance, we create our trips for you to become a more empowered version of yourself while supporting and connecting with others.
What is purposeful travel?
By ‘purposeful travel’ experiences, we mean that our trips go beyond the average leisure or work trip. We travel with a certain purpose, goal or intention. This can involve self-improvement, finding a better work life-balance, learning new skills, giving something back, spiritual growth, change of scenery, and many more…
At AVNEA we aim to become better humans by traveling. We believe that happens by doing good, connecting and celebrating life. That’s why our trips always have elements of personal growth, sharing, adventure, and joy.
What we offer
We do that by offering 3 types of trips in different extraordinary destinations around the globe.
It’s extremely important for us to travel with people with good intentions and an overall good vibe. We are looking for people who want to share, grown and support. That’s why we always have a call with anyone who wants to join.
We love to connect and share. We add different elements to our trips where we share on different levels. By the end of the every experience meaningful connections/friendships have been shaped.
We like to add a little adventure into every trip we organize. Whether it’s a (volcano)hike, ziplining, horse riding, We always like to add an adventurous element to shake things up a little and feel a life.
Every trip has a purpose purposeful because you learn something new, or share things, deeper your knowledge, or meet like-hearted others.
We stand for purpose and growth but that doesn't need to become too ‘floaty’. We also just love to celebrate life and enjoy the extraordinary places we get to visit on this planet.
