We founded the company after spending a whole year backpacking in Asia. We decided that we wanted to share our love for exceptional and adventurous travel with others – thus we started organizing ski and surf camps along with motorcycle tours to unique destinations we know and love.
Nearly a decade later, GoBeyond (founded under the brand Beyond the Standard) has grown into a renowned travel brand with out of the ordinary trips all around the world, with offices in Vienna and Budapest, and clients based all over the World.
We have launched GoBeyond to share our passion for winter sports, surfing, motorcycle touring and vanlife. We believe that creating the perfect journey can only be achieved by concentrating on details based on first-hand experiences. Therefore, we only offer a limited number of holidays ensuring that all of our trips are tailor-made to exceed your expectations!
We live in the time of overtourism and we have to admit that excessive travelling is harmful for our planet. As a travel designer company, what we can do is to make sure that the experience you spend your money, your free time, and the Earth’s limited resources on will last forever. After travelling nearly 1.000.000 kilometres around the globe we are certain what makes a journey truly memorable: acquiring new knowledge and skills and sharing authentic and unique experiences through real human connections. This is our goal with each and every trip and we work with a very good success ratio.
