Everybody knows that people are any company's most valuable asset. Incentive travel demonstrates recognition of employee achievement and also helps to promote confidence and develop commitment. This kind of reward encourages talent along with overall performance; statistics have also been reported that it is perceived to have a higher value than cash bonuses.
We have worked closely with suppliers from all over the world to create stimulating, motivating and inspirational trips. Some of the trips we have previously organised include; thrilling snowmobiling and dog sledding adventures in Sweden, Northern Lights hunting in Iceland, adrenalin pumping ice rallying and Winter Olympics in Finland as well as a dry suit Arctic floating off the coast of Norway.
Alternatively your team may prefer warmer climates where they can enjoy white-water rafting and canyoning in Slovenia or perhaps more relaxed sailing and mountain biking in Turkey would suit your group better.Read more
In line with your company's business objectives and using our exceptional expertise, we handcraft personalised itineraries, resulting in tailored trips designed to reward, engage and inspire your team, whilst ensuring that you receive maximum return on your investment.
We are aware that the average work force is a very diverse place so we know that 'one size does not fit all'. For that reason we can adapt our itineraries so not everybody is doing the same activity all of the time.
Our knowledgeable team have visited every destination that we offer so they can offer first-hand advice and guidance on choosing the right experience for your company.
Top five team building activities we recommend:
Arctic Winter Olympics – Available on numerous itineraries, this is a snow based activity which promotes team work and is also great fun. Your group is split into teams and will then participate in activities such as tandem biathlon, snowmobile slalom, snowshoe relay or fire lighting. Winners are recognised in an awards ceremony complete with medals!
Husky safari – For a true Arctic experience and to witness real team work in action (the dogs!) a husky safari takes some beating! Nothing beats zipping over frozen lakes with the only sound being the sled’s runners and the dogs’ paws on the snow.Read more
Ice karting – What could be more exciting than careering around a track in a go kart with your body inches from the frozen lake beneath, desperately trying to overtake your colleague on an opposing team? Who will be your company’s ice karting champio
Arctic floating – A unique way to see the landscape is by Arctic floating. Safely dressed in a special floating dry suit, which keep you warm and dry, you can float along with the current in the sea or river. Bobbing along like a cork on the water is a surreal experience especially within Arctic waters!
Ice Rally – The ‘big brother’ of ice karting, this is for those who really want a serious adrenalin buzz! With instruction at World Champion Rally driver, Juha Kankkunen’s, driving school. This has to be the ultimate Arctic driving experience.
Unique Arctic accommodation
To add something really original for your delegates why not include a night in a unique accommodation. There are many unforgettable experiences to be had.
Ice and Snow Hotels
There are many different snow and ice hotels in Scandinavia, each different from the other, but all totally constructed from ice and snow. The chance to sleep in a room adorned with beautiful carvings and intricate sculptures is a once in a lifetime experience. Each year these marvels will melt away and a new design will be constructed the following year.
You do not need to be Ranulph Fiennes to sleep in one of these rooms as the snow acts as the average room temperature is approximately -5°C. Your group will also be provided with Arctic grade sleeping bags.Read more
As the name suggests, these cabins are usually situated deep in the Arctic wilderness, miles from civilisation. To reach the cabins your group would need to some of the local forms of transport which include either mushing your own team of huskies or driving by snowmobile. The solitude and isolation of these cabins make them perfect for team building exercises such as foraging for fuel and food.
However, you can relax because if no provisions can be found your guide will cook dinner over the fire – if you are lucky you may also be graced with a Northern Lights display.
Glass Igloos and Aurora Bubbles
If the opportunity to see the Northern Lights is on your agenda, then sleeping beneath the vast Northern sky is certain to help in your quest. Comfortable and cosy, these glass roofed rooms are the perfect way to reward high performers in your company.
