Up to 18 entrepreneurs, with a shared mindset that knowledge sharing benefits everyone, embark on a journey to Spain. Many of our participants have joined multiple trips and continue to gain valuable experiences, which greatly benefit their budding businesses. We set off at the end of the cold season, trading it for sunshine and warmth, which rejuvenates us.

  • Internet speed is 300 Mbit.
  • We have our own chef (from our Barcelona destination) – so, expect delicious food!
  • Rooms are cozy with space for two in each.
  • Single rooms can be booked for USD 500.
  • The house offers many nooks for finding a peaceful workspace.
  • There’s a spacious common hall primarily used for work.
  • Beautiful garden with palm trees, tables, benches, and loungers.

Are you dreaming of improving your productivity and building strong connections in a unique work environment? Join Refuga’s workaway now and experience the ultimate combination of work and networking!

On the Refuga trip, you not only have the opportunity to immerse yourself in your projects but also to experience an exceptional atmosphere that boosts your creativity and motivation. Our dedicated team ensures that all your needs are met so you can focus on what truly matters.

With fast internet, inspiring workspaces, and beautiful surroundings just outside of Barcelona, Refuga is the perfect place to bring your ideas to life. Our participant group consists of entrepreneurs from different backgrounds and experiences, all willing to share their knowledge and provide valuable feedback. You will not only be inspired by their stories but also discover new perspectives and approaches to your own work.

But Refuga is not just about work; it’s also about creating lasting connections and building a strong network. Our past participants have found invaluable support and guidance from their fellow travelers. It might be an experienced writer helping you refine your book idea or a successful entrepreneur sharing their growth secrets. At Refuga, the network is the key to success.

We are proud of the positive feedback we’ve received from our past participants, and many of them return again and again. We love their enthusiasm and the energy they bring to the trip. However, we also want to welcome new entrepreneurs and give them the opportunity to bring their fresh ideas and perspectives to our community. That’s why we aim for a maximum of 75% repeat participants, ensuring there’s always room for fresh ideas and new connections.

Don’t hesitate to take the leap and become part of the Refuga community. Sign up now and turn your dream of writing your own book into reality. We look forward to welcoming you to our inspiring Workation in Tenerife.

One of the things that are important to us when traveling abroad is that new surroundings bring new thoughts and creativity, and another country is very effective in this regard. We prefer places with sunshine and warmth as it energizes the body. This trip will be in the autumn when sunshine and warmth are in short supply in Denmark. Food is also a core value for us. It’s important that it’s good food and that there’s plenty of it. That’s why we’re bringing our usual chef from Barcelona, Sergio. If you’ve been with us before, you’ve probably met him. He’s originally from Italy but lives in Barcelona. He makes really good food!

If you have questions, please send an email and book a chat with Lars Lottrup, who is the tour leader.

Daniel tells the following about the trip with Refuga: The feedback I got during the session by the pool was significant. As soon as I got home, I made my first liquidity budget, hired a part time worker, and got a much bigger overview of my growing business. It made me so confident I applied for the Danish version of Shark Tank.

Patrick Teglstrup Rasmussen –

Of all the conferences, events, and things alike I have participated in Refuga is by far the event I got the most out of especially when it comes to networking. If you need a little push from likeminded people, then go on a trip with Refuga. I can only recommend it and I already look forward to next time!

I have participated at Refuga once. It was an incredible experience with serious work, football, delicious food and unforgettable bike rides in the mountains.

Søren Sieg Jensen –

I have gone on trips with Refuga 6 times´, and all 6 times have been amazing experiences. Every time I have come home with new unique experiences in my baggage and new acquaintances which have been priceless for both my company and to me personally. The sparring and the network you get on a trip like this is not something you can buy for money other places. I have certainly not been on my last trip!

To go with Refuga has brought my company big value and new possibilities. I have met a group of people who each and everyone have contributed, so that I have been able to progress as a human and company owner. I can warmly recommend a work trip under the sun of the south.

Who participates in a trip like this?
Our participants are a mixed group of people. We have participants who have many employees and others who are only just considering who to hire first. The most important thing is that all the participants share the wish to learn something new and help others. They also know that it will be helpful to get a different perspective on the business from the outside.
Is it a requirement that I am self-employed?
No, we often have participants who are employees. The importent thing is the mindset. That you are openminded and willing to share of your knowledge and help others.

Lars Skjoldby – Skjoldby & Co

I have participated in several networking events as a self-employed person, but the networks I have gained during my 5 Refuga trips to Spain are without comparison the best, strongest, and most valuable networks. Refuga have given me an extra gear. Anyone who knew me before my first trip can confirm this.
