Unforgettable Journeys: inspiring, intense, touching
travel instead of being traveled. Experience instead of watching. Meet each other as a couple, with family or among friends in unique places. Try out the unusual instead of repeating the familiar. Immerse instead of consuming. Really get involved instead of just watching. Unforgettable Journeys is the tour operator for people who are curious about the world, who like to break new ground and have the courage for the great adventure life. What could such a thing look like? A gourmet picnic on the perfect secluded beach – just for you. Explore the most breathtaking reefs with a private submarine. Sitting under the starry sky with an astronomy professor and explaining the universe – over a glass of wine. Climb the rope into a rugged canyon and then be pampered by the private chef by the campfire before cuddling up to bed in his luxury tent. What makes you really happy is the mix: be active – and come to rest; dare – and relax; on the road – in a variety of ways, on foot, by boat, by yacht, camel or horse. And meet exciting people who inspire you again and again: creative winemakers, top-class scientists, casual adventure guides…

The Unforgettable Journey Story

The success of Unforgettable Journeys is, as is often the case, a clash of unique ingredients.

A pioneer who has travelled extensively in over 90 countries and created a formula for experience luxury. A market niche that does not see travel as a holiday, but interweaves worldwide, spectacular nature, exceptional accommodation, unique experiences in breathtaking, individual itineraries.

A type of travel that combines barefoot luxury with access to extraordinary people, places and adventures.

An entrepreneur who has already successfully founded companies in the past and knows that only high-level expertise and experience create the confidence to trigger individual moments of happiness.

A team that is thrilled to be able to work with these extraordinary ingredients.

Customers who immerse themselves in foreign, exciting worlds and become regular customers.

Spectacular nature discovered in a variety of forms: by hot air balloon, on a vintage motorcycle with sidecar, on the back of horses, camels or yaks, in a private submarine or airplane, on comfortable expedition ships, on the climbing rope, by canoe or yacht, on a luxury train or by pedes.

Unique experiences such as a private concert in the middle of the desert, a gourmet picnic in the tops of a sacred tree, a wine tasting with a creative winemaker on his private hacienda, a de-Luxe barbecue on an uninhabited island and, and, and…

Exceptional accommodation: from the enchanted palace to the comfortable yurt, from the luxury tent to the silvery shiny Airstream camper to the private sailing yacht, from the 5-star treehouse to the noble cabana on a deserted beach – your homebase on time is always perfectly integrated into nature, architecturally sophisticated, stylish, but casual.

GRUSSWORT OF THE FOUNDER

I am Julia Malchow

Ph.D. scientist, entrepreneur, world traveller and successful author for 20 years.
I worked for several years in strategic management consulting and management coaching.
I have published a book at the renowned Piper Verlag about the inspiring transformative power of travel and encouraged many readers to shape their lives according to their own rules.
I have travelled intensively to more than 90 countries and spend more than 100,000 euros a year on (incognito) trips.
Often I only knew what I could ideally experience after intensive research on site – the information from glossy magazines, web, tour operators and service providers on site is often too confusing, sponsored promotions or simply wrong Marketing promises.

I founded unforgettable journeys to offer an innovative, casually wild innovative form of luxury travel in Germany: experience luxury. An intense special form of luxury that is intense and sustainable. Something remains of that. Forever.

In order to offer my discerning customers an honest high-end travel service on an equal footing, which they are happy to accept and indulge in and which gives you what they need and deserve: extraordinary unforgettable experiences. Your Life, your Rules. I look forward to it!

My thoughts behind it

Special moments and extraordinary experiences make life so special.
These are the stories that stay that take me forward.
Travel is so much more than visiting places or relaxing in beautifully designed surroundings.
When travelling, all senses are open, the intensity that can arise when traveling is magical.
That’s why the chance to have these extraordinary intense experiences on the go is so high.
For me, travel is not an escape from everyday life, not an escapism, but an engine and a source of inspiration. Life and travel intertwine.
For me, travelling is an intense way to feel, share and feel my family’s personality, share it, connect with it.
More important than material professional success is how I experience myself and my environment. The extraordinary experiences on the road are a powerful vehicle for this.

And: every person is unique. I celebrate this uniqueness. I love to see the differences and peculiarities, the curves and corners, the (supposed) imperfections, what makes the character, the difference to see, to understand, to celebrate. We are all unique. And that’s what I celebrate and strengthen about our travels.
It’s not about finding the new hot spot, going further away into solitude, but experiencing special places in a special way.

The “HOW” of travel is crucial.

This how is my understanding of luxury: because for every person there is a very personal unique HOW.

It works
we not only sell hotel and flight, but the design of the days, therefore our trips seem more expensive. However, they are worth every euro. We know this after the first trip we designed.

80 percent regular customers
high referral rate
7-digit sales and above-average growth
people know me and us from the press
Our customers love us and our travel experiences
We are a member of the most important visionary international luxury travel communities – by invitation only – Pure and Emotions

Dear Travelers,
Don’t run the risk of not experiencing the world, not experiencing the life you might ideally experience.
Don’t run the risk of not experiencing what your extraordinary personality and demanding life is like when you travel.
Share with your family on extraordinary journeys the experiences that make you feel who you are and what you are for each other. Also and precisely because in everyday life the time for it is often short.

Your unforgettable journey, your rules.
