Founded in 1988 we are the oldest still actively operating outdoor events company focussing on activity and adventure events and team building. We have pioneered in many fields of outdoor activities and kept our focus on constant improvement and thus keeping safety standards at the highest levels. You’re in good hands with Trekking Team.
Everybody's welcome - your club, your gym group, your family, your school class, your company - we have a variety of programmes available and all can be adapted to your wishes. Our programmes offer a great deal of fun and entertainment - in air, water or on the ground (plus underground!)! Some are challenging, others are creative - but they all have one thing in common: Bringing people together!
We're located in Ticino and central Switzerland but can adapt to more regions if wanted.
Fun & action events are designed for groups and teams who know each other and are looking for an active, entertaining and/or adventurous experience. There's a touch of team building in all such activities - trying something new or different, creating or finding something together will boost your team spirit in any case.
Team building programmes ideally last at least ¾ to a full day. This scope is needed in order to allow enough time for the tasks and a thorough feedback.
The programmes are accompanied by specifically trained outdoor and team building coaches. Being out in nature helps to have your team or group leave well-trodden paths. It motivates and promotes the desire and pleasure to explore and try out something new. A specific team building event goes beyond a fun team event. The scope may be similar but the programme will be put together in accordance with you to verify what aims and goals you have in mind and we will then bring in the appropriate tasks to promote your themes.
Such themes can range from communication, raising awareness, reduce insecurities, build trust and confidence, integration of new team members etc.). There are tasks that focus on process-orientated thinking, communication in its various forms, others promote autodidactic learning, time management, motivation, smart and sensible use of resources. We will challenge your teams and explore limits but we won't go beyond what everybody is capable to do. Our coaches are with you to lead and motivate but also to support and help. At the end of each challenge we will reflect and analyse and look at possibilities of knowledge transfer into your work environment.
Our motto is very simple: "Safety First"!
Indeed we offer many adventurous programmes, but when it comes to your safety, we are no adventurers. We've worked this way for more than thirty years now and have no intention to change our ways on this subject. Trekking Team was the first outdoor company in Switzerland to receive the security certificate "Safety in adventures."
The company's senior management is actively involved in all programmes and takes full responsibility for all areas of security and checks the compliance with the company's security concept on a regular basis. We prioritise the training of our staff and put guides in charge who are trained and specialised for the specific areas and activites. Guides are trained and certified by the Swiss Outdoor Association (SOA) and for the cave part by the speleology school "Schweizerische Schule für Höhlenbefahrungen Hölloch" (SSH). International staff have to have an equivalent certification that complies with the standards and regulations of SOA and us (particularly in the Bungy sector).
Your safety is our priority!
