Corporate Events and Special Occasions
Hiking trails and the overnight venues associated with them make ideal locations for corporate team-building events, or for simply socialising in a relaxed setting. Spending time in nature is the ultimate way to escape the pressures of the office environment. What you choose to focus on is up to you:
- Organise team-building activities, whether hiking-related, or not
- Set aside uninterrupted time to focus on strategic planning and work-related issues
- Take time out to get to know peers and colleagues better
- Use it as a means to reward staff, or even clients, who enjoy this kind of activity
Hiking trails range from easy and short, to more strenuous and challenging; from a single night away, to multiple overnights. Simply choose the option best suited to the fitness levels of the group, as well as your preferred focus of activities. Whatever your needs, logistical support will be provided to make sure that everything is in place.
The type of activities that you wish to undertake can be structured to suite specific outcomes and the itineraries arranged to aid these goals. You may wish to bring in your own facilitator; alternatively, Slackpacker SA has strong associations with team-building professionals who specialise in outdoor activities.
Whatever your preference, know that you’ll be doing it all in true Slackpacker SA style - come the end of the day you’ll enjoy a hot shower and be served a delicious meal, with drinks arranged according to your requirements. To top it all, you’ll sleep in a comfortable bed and wake up well rested in a beautiful, natural setting.
For something really out of the ordinary, celebrate your special occasion on the mountain, in the vineyards or alongside the crashing waves!
Overnight venues associated with Slackpacker SA are of the standard that is suitable for special private occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or other family gatherings, or even intimate weddings. These events are usually small and exclusive, although some venues can accommodate larger numbers.
Hiking and other outdoor activities usually form part of the event programme but this need not always be the case. Most locations entail a degree of hiking, requiring a reasonable degree of fitness - while some others can be reached by private vehicle. Should a particular member of your party not be able to hike, transport arrangements could be made in most instances.
The important thing is that you’ll be doing it all in true Slackpacker SA style – your luggage will be transported and, at the end of the day, there will be a hot shower, home-cooked meal and comfortable bed waiting for you. In addition, logistical support is available for most requirements or eventualities.
Whether you do this as a couple, with family or friends, or as part of a social group, there are few better ways to enjoy a special occasion. If this tickles your fancy, contact us for exciting options.
