Trying to list all of the best places to travel for a MovNat event is a bit of a fool’s errand. There are too many! With over 150 events on our 2022 calendar, we had a hard time narrowing our list down to only 15 locations. So, if none of these perked your interest, there may be others that do.
MovNat events are a life changing experience, and traveling to a top destination to participate in one makes it all the better. After two years of travel restrictions, make 2022 the year you get back out there and turn your dream trips into reality.
