The best digital nomad programs for every month in 2023 (nomad travel calendar)

Last updated on June 1st, 2024

 

Ever since Tim Ferriss wrote “The 4-Hour Workweek”, millions of professionals have been quitting their offices and hitting the road to join “the new rich”. Life design (actively curating the kind of lifestyle you want) has taken on increasing importance and more people than ever have become digital nomads. The more people that started joining the nomadic work train, the more specific services cropped up to cater to them. This includes companies like Wi-Fi Tribe and Remote Year that host digital nomad programs or group work and travel retreats. 

 

These services are particularly beneficial for new remote workers who want to travel hassle-free and existing portable professionals who value building community. Here is a definitive list of organized digital nomad programs to plan your travels in 2023 where you can collect stamps, memories, and travel buddies.
