If you are in charge of finding the best outdoor activities for your company this summer and you have a pile of work to start looking for where, compare prices and ideal locations for your group of colleagues.
Whether your group is 10 people or 500, here is a list of the best outdoor activities for company events with the best locations in Spain:
Rafting alongthe rivers in Zaragoza
The first option we recommend is to do rafting with a group that includes a competition, which boat arrives at the destination before the others. One of the best rafting destinations for companies is Murillo de Gállego. A spectacular natural setting in Zaragoza to enjoy pure adrenaline. This outdoor activity is ideal for encouraging teamwork and group motivation with the aim of achieving a common goal: to win the rafting race. Do you think you can do it? Be brave, the fun is guaranteed!
Outdoor nautical, chill out and catering in Vilanova y la Geltrú
The second one is a gymkhana of beach nautical activities such as kayaking, paddle surfing or any other outdoor activity near Barcelona. In Vilanova i la Geltrú you’ll find the Ribes Roges beach, a space of more than 500 hectares for all kinds of groups. It is also located next to the La Daurada Beach Club, the most important beach club in the area with capacity for large groups and a chill-out area by the sea. Here you can organise your event, from catering and drinks on the beach to the more than ten different activities on offer in the area: kayaking, sailing, paddle surfing, pedal skating, windsurfing, volleyball or football on the sand, etc.
Canyoning in the Vero River in Huesca
The third is in the province of Huesca, where we come across one of the best canyoning descents in Spain: the Río Vero canyon. Canyoning is also an outdoor activity in which teamwork is essential to help the group overcome all the obstacles that you will encounter during the descent: jumps, abseiling, ropes to hold your partner, sections of rocks and stones, etc. And what better natural space than one of the most spectacular and beautiful mountain ranges in Huesca: the Sierra de Guara: canyons, yeah, outdoor, much more!
Hiking in the Pyrenees for groups in Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici
The fourth is a getaway to the Pyrenees to practice hiking combined with a game of intricacies to achieve the final solution. Hiking in groups in the Aigüestortes and Sant Maurici National Park, in which each team must follow the marked clues in the middle of the mountain to reach the end point and find the solution to the enigma. This type of game can be set in the business of ancient smugglers or pagan witches’ stories.
Sailing boat regatta in Sitges, Barcelona
The fifth, and last, is once again at sea. A sailing regatta in Sitges, a few kilometres from Barcelona, ideal for this type of outdoor activity. Both on the Valencian and Catalan coast, you will be able to practice this type of sailing regatta experience for groups. Make groups, work as a team and win the regatta! And the final prize: a nice beer on the sand lying in the sun or discussing the game with your colleagues.
The best accommodation for outdoor corporate events in Spain
You have already booked your outdoor activity. Now it’s time to find the best accommodation. It should suit your budget, with shared rooms or flats for four or five people or more.
In any of these locations you will find hotels ranging from three to five stars, well located, with all the services your company needs and meeting or convention rooms. Like the Desitges hotel between Sitges and Vilanova i la Geltrú, a comfortable hotel perfect for your company event with an outdoor swimming pool and conference rooms.
Another option is the campsites. Bungalows or tents, to make the experience even more outdoor. You can also combine your stay at the campsite with night-time activities if the location of the campsite is close to the forest, for example. The Pubill campsite near Llavorsí, in the Catalan Pyrenees, has essential services in an ideal location.
Finally, an option also suitable for corporate events would be a hostel or an aparthotel with rooms or flats for more than five people normally. With fewer services than the other two options but with a more adventurous feel. One option would be the Sport Hotel Hermitage & Spa flats in Andorra, luxury flats with a large capacity.
Other destinations outside Spain for corporate events or team buildings
If your corporate event is planned outside of the summer season, there are other options outside of Spain as a destination for corporate events. We also have nearby and fun options for your company.
For example, adventure activities in the snow in the Grau Roig sector of the Grandvalira resort in Andorra, the neighbouring country, such as snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing or thrill-packed adventure raids. In all these outdoor activities, teams can be created and compete against each other to achieve a common goal. Teamwork and coordination between your employees will be key to the success of the group.
