Why Outdoor? To get you “out” of the frame
We are going to bring out innovative behaviors, questioning, bring participants to take a step back. Changing the frame to change your perspective is the basis of the activities we offer. Rafting, canoeing, team orienteering are the ingredients of a successful business seminar, but not only!
The seminar is also the time to discover new talents like artistic talents, qualities of animators, coach. For example, how to create a positive dynamic around a challenge? Identifying the strengths and potential of each is the starting point of any HRD strategy, all while respecting our environment in an eco-responsible way, ideal for your CSR policy! The seminar is a pleasant moment where we meet in another context. But it is also more: let’s take the bet that you will discover unsuspected resources in some of your employees.
We have built for you several programs for successful and innovative business conferences between:
- Escape during hikes for all levels, from beginners to confirmed, in the furrows of the Gorges du Verdon or during an electric mountain bike getaway on our most beautiful trails,
- Immersion through fun and energizing nautical experiences with canoeing, solo or accompanied, rafting, canonyoning, aqua hiking, etc…
- Cohesion with team challenge, a “Kho Lanta” Verdon Express version, or even large format orienteering races: real moments of sharing, community, synergies and above all laughter!
- Intellectual and collective stimulation with our cultural workshops in partnership with many players in the area: introduction to astronomy with the local astronomical observatory, visit to the Museum of Prehistory of the Gorges du Verdon, discovery of green treasures with the Regional Natural Park of Verdon as well as black treasures with activities around truffle growing or even the encounter with the emblematic film “Verdon Secret”, etc…
