Globe-Setters: the new community of inspired travelers

Start
Following in the footsteps of a masterpiece, of rare collections, of a singular object, of ancestral tribes or of intact and preserved landscapes: could this be the purpose of a new type of travel? Cultivating an art of living of the moment in an intimate quest... Jorge Apesteguia-Peña has imagined a new platform of travel collections for explorers of a new genre, the "Globe-Setters", which gives a new meaning to the word "travel". Just like globetrotters for whom travelling implies curiosity, a sense of astonishment, a taste for research, a quest for meaning and many truths.
 
Un loafer slumbers in any worthy traveller... Why are we going on a trip? Is it the encounter with the singularity of a place and a culture that we expect from a journey, from any journey? It is essentially to leave aside one's prejudices, habits, convictions, to open one's mind and senses to the radical novelty of what is presented, in short to be curious, well disposed, or available for all kinds of encounters. To strip oneself of one's certainties, to accept the questioning of a previous life whose relativity one grasps, and finally to be astonished: these are, perhaps, the duties of the traveller!

Then the ascent of the red dunes in Namibia, the unknown route of the cherry tree road in Japan, the discovery by horse-drawn carriage of one of the highest perched vineyards in Argentina... the selection and preparation of the stay is in itself a journey in itself.
 
Jorge Apesteguia-Peña, has imagined in 2011 a new community of demanding travellers, whose members are in search of unique, confidential and experiential discoveries, in search of unsuspected paths: the Globe-Setters.
Distinguishing mark: irresistibly attracted by experiences off the beaten track but always around elegance, privacy and assumed comfort. Why wouldn't one go without the other? Believing that a trip requires complex organisation and that a destination is only explored once, these travellers seek to discover each spot in the most confidential way, so as not to miss out on the exceptional.
 
Who is Jorge Apesteguia-Peña? Wise businessman of Spanish origin, hyper active, atypical not to say unclassifiable, speaking four languages, after a professional career in the luxury sectors, he decided to start his own company based on his experience and passion of 25 years of travelling around the world. His studies in economics give him a sense and taste for marketing. But this is not enough: after a master's degree in photography and a degree in philosophy - for pleasure and culture - he wants to "reinvent life" with the two main traits of his character as his leitmotif: curiosity and hedonism. 
 
 Jorge Apesteguia-Peña 
 
With this in mind, Jorge Apesteguia-Peña decided to share his experiences, founding a "circle" of different ways of life that would allow its members to travel in the best possible conditions, thanks to a panel of expert advice and highly elaborate itineraries. Today, accompanied by a group of expert ambassadors, it offers its members the best experiences, saving them precious time and allowing them to discover the most exceptional places around the world.
 
 
Inspired by a core ambassadorThe Globe-Setters travel the world to discover unsuspected trails and carefully guarded local nuggets. Its members take off in complete privacy to fly over lunar landscapes in helicopters, explore the most remote territories in the world, meet ancestral tribes, enjoy personalized relaxation programs, or stay in ultra-confidential lodges in the heart of nature.
 
 
Globe-Setter is the perfect mix between a Globe-Trotter and a Trend-Setter. Just like the Globe-Trotters, they are eager for authentic journeys all over the world. Their driving force is discovery. Like the real Jet-Setters of the time, they want to cultivate the Art of Living and travelling, with the elegance and confidentialité of all experiences as their obsession. Like sleeping in an ice cathedral 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, or in a hotel perched in the trees like a bird in a glass nest in Sweden, ... 
 
 
 
Always on the lookout for new destinations, the Globe-Setters explore the world to tell you about their travel adventures. True referents of the countries they visit, they have prepared these journeys with passion and precision, as they would for their best friends. Today, these experts are making their playgrounds known by creating intimate, inspiring, warm stays, who want to have a taste of authenticity and experience, far from mass tourism and marked out paths.
 
 
How do they work?
Their ambassadors share their exceptional travels with the community.
These stays are accessible online through a dedicated platform.
Each stay can be personalised day by day online according to their advice.
The platform offers updated rates and online booking.
Once the stay is booked, their team of experts will accompany you from A to Z.

Another special feature of the Globe-Setters club is the creation of a particularly innovative online tool for a booking platform where travellers can compose their ideal stay in just a few clicks. Budget, themes, destination, options, special requests... composed of several hundred finely crafted itineraries based on the advice of the Globe-Setters.
