Take your team outdoors!
We offer a range of activities from canyoning, abseiling and adventure races; integrated with archery, paintball and fun games where the whole team can get involved at a level that suits them; have a good laugh and blow away the cobwebs before, during or even after your conference.
We cater for most ages and physical abilities.
If you’ve no time for canyoning but would like to do something similar to challenge your team we have two alternative abseiling experiences for you, situated on the stunning Auckland Waitakere Estate grounds.
The Canopy View Abseil – 1.5hrs $95pp – (Minimum spend $1100)
A 28m abseil that starts off as a gentle ramp that will ease you over the edge and have you descending a vertical wall, while surrounded by beautiful native bush. This abseil is situated a 2-minute walk from the Waitakere Estate conference rooms. A good challenge, but also an activity suited to most groups as you remain dry and it can be scheduled in part way through your event.
Rainforest Waterfall – 3hrs $145pp – (Minimum spend $1450)
After honing your skills with some basic abseil practice we head into the bush, following a stream. There you will face three abseils, the biggest of which is 30m, as well as some other obstacles that you’ll have to work together as a team to overcome. Most of the time you will be in ankle to knee-deep water, but the last abseil will shower you, so bring spare dry clothes! A great option for big groups, with a variety of fitness and ability levels, that want adventure and don’t mind getting wet.
All obstacles are optional and participants can pick which abseils they do. Challenges will require teamwork and some individuals will need to step out of their comfort zones, with the support of their colleagues.
Adventure Race – approx 2hrs $95pp – (ideal group size 10-40pax)
The team is split into groups to race against each other, with a series of problem-solving activities. It’s all about fun, exploring the grounds and gardens around the Waitakere Estate and having a good laugh.
Included in your Adventure Race are activities such as paintball target shooting, blindfolded mazes, navigation, archery and communication challenges. This program can expose real challenges faced by teams in their work place in a fun non-threatening way.
To add more physical exercise and exploration to the activity we can add some Rogaine / orienteering type activity. We provide the maps/compasses and training. This is a great way to burn off more energy and get to see the tracks in the native bush around the resort.
Rescue challenge – approx 2hrs $95pp – (ideal group size 10-40pax)
Learn a specific search and rescue task. Set up a Tyrolean crossing – learn about choosing safe anchors, tying knots, using tension systems to create a river crossing. Organise a search for a missing person – tracking, search methods, navigation, profiling and recovery.
What better way is there is show your team you care, than by dangling them over a cliff?
Piha Half Day – 5.5hrs $185pp – (minimum 4pax)
An ideal introduction to the excitement and beauty of canyoning, perfect for those on a tight schedule with flexible departure times. Ideal for big groups with varying skill and fitness levels, such as corporate functions, team building and Christmas parties. Includes transport, snacks, and refreshments. Not to mention all the gear and great guides to complete the package. We can also help you with catering options for afterwards.
