Team Orienteering on an Alpine Plateau
Equipped with a 1:25,000 scale Explorer map and compass the teams try to find 4-5 checkpoints in the alpine terrain. As soon as the team finds a checkpoint marked on the map, they are set a task (mini project), to which the solution should be found within about 15 minutes. However, the task can only be successfully solved if all team members cooperate fully. From one checkpoint to the next it is about a 30 minutes walk.
This event isn’t physically demanding as the participants hike the distance from one checkpoint to the next.
The group is moving around at an altitude of about 1400 metres above sea level, just below the tree line on a delightful plateau lined by the Churfirsten mountain range.

- Football with a Visual Challenge
- The Knots and the Rope
- Negotiating the Rod
- Order on the Plank
- Water Transport
- Leonardo‘s Bridge

We plan this event entirely according to your requirements. We are happy to give you more information by phone on the individual games.
This team-building programme is designed for all seasons. In winter, spring or late autumn the team training aspect of this programme may even be more pronounced! In case of snow, snowshoes are available for hire.
Team evaluation and coaching
Engaging a professional coach to observe your team at work will ensure that they, and the company, get the most from the whole experience. He or she will be on hand throughout the day to analyse performance, highlight achievements, address problems and help the team to utilise the lessons learnt back in the working environment.
