This team building programme received an excellence award for best adventure-filled event at the 2010 Event Management Conference.
It will take you back to the First World War, when the Isonzo Front raged across the Soča Valley. You’ll become soldiers in order to engage in team assignments of various complexity. You’ll rescue the wounded from underground bunkers, cross a mine field, deactivate a chemical bomb, and more. The programme takes place in the Tolmin Hills and along the Soča River.
This is a highly motivational team building programme featuring a unique combination of hiking, cycling, exploring history and cultural heritage, and solving team assignments.
It can be carried out in a single day or extended to two days. As part of the two-day programme, you set up a military camp, build a campfire by the Soča, prepare an omelette known locally as “frika”, and set up guards to protect you from an attack. Of course, an attack can also be a pleasant and amusing surprise.
