For a few years now, this new way of experiencing the outdoors have fascinated travelers and businesses around the world.

The benefits of outdoor team activities
Outdoor team activities encompass all forms of experiences that involve nature-based activities: whether your team loves long, quiet walks, embracing the trend of “slow” tourism, or whether they go for adrenaline-pumping activities such as mountain biking and rafting: Italy always knows how to surprise.
Outdoor team activities are not only a way to be surrounded by nature and live authentic experiences. It is also a way to:
- Contribute to your employees’ mental and physical well-being
- Reconnect with the group
- Create experiences that are “disconnected” from everyday life and the digital world
- Enrich oneself through what you encounter along the way
- Share values in a community
- Establish unique relationships
- Connect with the customs and traditions of a place
- Make more responsible and sustainable choices
When people practice adrenaline activities such as rafting or e-bike, the body produces a hormone also called oxytocin. It is commonly called the love hormone or the social hormone, and it stimulates interpersonal relationships and group collaboration. It therefore leads to have more trust in others, as well as being more empathetic. Having a thrilling and unusual experience such as riding the river rapids or hilly slopes helps to strengthen the cohesion among the team members.
Last but not least, outdoor team activities, such as rafting and bike team building, don’t require technical requirements or knowledge, only trust and empathy! Employees need just to follow the guides directions advice and make the most out of their day!
