Think an intimate Omakase in Tokyo, or dine at Diaca with Chef Debora Fadul- Guatemala's most celebrated culinary pioneer.

Hyperlocal Sabbatical - Nature


Escape the city and experience the natural wonders around your destination.

What about a Comporta horse ride on Europe's longest beach, scaling  Rio's Pedra da Gávea- world's largest seaside rock, or surf in Bali's secret spots with local legend Betet Merta.

Hyperlocal Sabbatical - Sports


We'll keep you fit throughout your chapter and introduce you to uniquely local sports. 

Try cricket in Mumbai, join a sunset altinha session in Rio's world famous Ipanema beach, or join a local tennis coaching nearby the complex of Paris' Roland Garros.

Hyperlocal Sabbatical - Arts & Culture

Hyperlocal Sabbatical - Business & Creative


One of our mission at Sabbatical is to unleash your potential- whether it's helping you discover a new business idea or getting new creative juice in.

Hyperlocal Sabbatical - Wellness


Your sabbatical can be the most relaxed, or intense month of your life- it's totally up to you how you'll spend it. Regardless, we'll get you recharged in the middle of the month with the most locally-unique wellness option. 

Think swimming in one of Madeira's natural pools, getting a traditional Balinese massage, relaxing over a beachside yoga session in Lisbon's Caparica coast, or stepping into a luxury Roman bath in Milan and Rome.

Hyperlocal Sabbatical - Excursion


No chapter is complete without exploring your destination's surroundings. We've included the best day-trips that you can't miss.
