Canoe tour for companies

Cool idea for a company event: Canoeing in Ticino, Switzerland

You are organizing the next company outing and ask yourself: what can be done as a special company event? Then our tip for a joint excursion with colleagues is: Get out of the office and into the canoe! If your next company event is not supposed to be a run-of-the-mill event, but a cool outdoor activity in Switzerland, you are welcome to join us on a canoe tour through the beautiful landscapes of Ticino!

Together we start canoeing at the village of Cresciano (Riviera district), which is particularly popular with outdoor sports enthusiasts. Depending on the group and previous knowledge, you can then go by canoe on the Fiume Ticino in the direction of Bellinzona.

As an activity for company events, canoeing on the Fiume Ticino is just as suitable for beginners as it is for experienced canoeists. It is also a good idea if you put together the small groups for your company activity in such a way that one person with experience leads the team.

But that is not necessary, because our proven guides will accompany you at the group event for companies and take care of your safety as well as the free photo service. And if you wish, they will also be happy to serve you an aperitif after the canoe tour, with which you can let the company outing come to a relaxed end.

In general, this extraordinary company event focuses on the idea that you can have fun together and playfully come together as a team while canoeing. The sun-kissed region, which shows its special beauty and variety in this section of Swiss Ticino, also ensures an atmospheric ambience. And if the temperatures are already playing along, then there is nothing wrong with rounding off canoeing as a company event with swimming in the crystal-clear water of the Ticino.

Book easily and flexibly: Your company event by canoe in Ticino

Are you looking for a special idea for the company outing that will completely inspire all participants without the preparations degenerating into stress? Then you are exactly right with purelements®! As an experienced provider of outdoor activities for companies and other groups, we have made booking your company outing to Ticino easy and flexible.

You can book the canoe tour for groups directly online with us and thus reserve the date, the number of participants and the desired tour as well as other extras. You will receive the tickets for your cool company outing directly by email. For every 12 participants booked, one guide is available to accompany your company outing as a private tour (regular tariff or higher).

The canoes that we provide for this wonderful idea for a company event are robust inflatable canoes that even beginners can use to paddle safely and happily on the Ticino. You strengthen your team spirit when you reach the first small rapids or by overcoming smaller distances as playful races and of course by getting in the mood for each other as a group while paddling.

But the best thing about this extraordinary activity for the company outing is experiencing and enjoying it together! Because team building does not only take place in competition or training, team spirit always arises when you create shared experiences and memories. Our free photo service and the great snapshots that you take home with you will ensure that your canoe trip together in Ticino will be a topic of conversation for a long time to come!

As the organizer of the team event canoeing in Switzerland, you also benefit from our advantageous group rates. For example, you can decide whether you want to choose the particularly favorable tariff because the date and the number of participants are certain. Or you book the Flex Plus tariff, which gives you a high degree of flexibility because you can change the date again or name substitute participants up to three days before the company event.

Great activities instead of standard events: more excursion tips for your team-away days

The Fiume Ticino is a tributary of the Po and flows about 90 km through Switzerland towards Italy. In German, the river and region are known as “Tessin”. And anyone who has ever vacationed on Lake Maggiore, into which the Ticino flows, knows that an exceptionally beautiful landscape and the pure hospitality of Italian-speaking Switzerland await them at this company event.

Are you looking for more ideas for your company outing - for one or more team-away days? Then you are also well advised to take a trip to Ticino, because sociability and team spirit are good manners in this region.

If you want to stay with sporty activities, in addition to canoeing, you can hike to the Ponte Tibetano Carasc or along the Verzasca to Sonogno. Lake Maggiore invites you to water sports or swimming, and bungee jumping, skydiving or go-karting can also be easily organized here for company events.

With a wine tasting, a delicious cocktail or dinner in one of the restaurants where local specialties are served, you will get into conversation and review the adventure. A joint detour to the hip disco at the Vanilla Club or a relaxing end to the day at the spa is also a cool idea for the most unusual company outing you have ever experienced together!

All you have to do now is decide on one of our tariffs, fill out the registration form and determine the supporting program together with colleagues or team, so that you can then enjoy the anticipation of your great team building event.
