The School of Life Australia has today announced that it is launching ‘The Art of Travel’ – a new series of unique tours in partnership with Intrepid Travel.

The first tour: The Red Centre – On Humility and Perspective will take place in Central Australia from 10-15 September 2017 with tickets on sale now at

Participants (capped at 20 people per tour) will visit Alice Springs, the East MacDonnell Ranges, Kings Canyon and Uluru and explore a variety of themes throughout the journey, including: sociability, relating to others, culture and beauty, career perspective, personal confidence, meaning and joy.


Kings Canyon

The Art of Travel tours will explore the notion of travelling for pleasure and how travel, when approached the right way, can play a critical role in helping us to grow into better versions of ourselves. We might be searching for how to be calmer or how to find a way to rethink our goals. We might long for a greater sense of confidence or an escape from debilitating feelings of envy. Ideally, where we travel should help us with our attempts at personal growth.

Each Art of Travel tour will be hosted by a faculty member from The School of Life and an expert Intrepid Travel leader.

Christian Stenta, faculty member at The School of Life and tour leader for The Red Centre – On Humility and Perspective says:

“The world in which we live, work and play has much to teach us about ourselves and one another. The Art of Travel provides a unique opportunity to tune out from the day-to-day distractions we face at home and in the office, and creates a space for us to explore the essentials of life in nature’s classroom.”

“Travel has always been one of the best ways for people to discover themselves, but these trips take self-discovery to the next level” says Brett Mitchell, Australia and NZ Regional Director, Intrepid Travel.

“Our partnership with The School of Life means that travellers will be able to discover some of the most inspiring destinations in our country, with some of the most inspiring experts in emotional intelligence.”

Brett Mitchell, Australia and NZ Regional Director, Intrepid Travel.

“We are so proud to be partnership with Intrepid for this unique travel experience. We both believe deeply in the power of travel to transform lives, and the Red Centre is the perfect place to cultivate two of the most important virtues: humility and perspective,” says Kaj Löfgren, Director, The School of Life Australia.
