The Italian part of Switzerland for your team building

It is always a pleasure for us to plan one of our activities in this beautiful region of Switzerland.

To date, we have organized a number of group activities and company outings there.
And all in the most beautiful locations.

Of course, we're always happy to advise you on the best location for your team building activity anywhere in Switzerland.

With our static face-to-face activities, you have the option of bringing your staff together in a superb restaurant at the foot of Bellinzona's castles, taking advantage of a conference room or rooftop terrace in a hotel on Lake Lugano, or hosting a meeting in your company garden.

What's more, we're often asked to set the mood at company outings. Our Level Up! and Tour de Suisse games are sure to provide plenty of laughs and memorable moments before, during or after the meal. It's the perfect way to strengthen your teams' cohesion and motivate them for the rest of the year.

Our geolocated face-to-face activities allow you to bring your employees together in the fresh air, and are perfect for discovering new cities and regions while having fun as a team. We always place our geolocation points strategically, so that participants can enjoy the most beautiful places while on the move during their activity.

Would you, for example, like to introduce your employees visiting from abroad to the town of Locarno? They won't want to miss the old town with its fascinating architecture, the Piazza Grande or the shores of Lake Maggiore, for example. It's a great opportunity to network while visiting the place of your choice!

The Tour of Switzerland

We know that it is sometimes very complicated to gather all your employees in the same place for the organization ofa team building in Switzerland. That's why we created the Tour de Suisse. This game can be played virtually or as a hybrid and allows you to perfect your Swiss culture wherever you are! Of course, you can consult our games page to discover all the games available in virtual or hybrid, you have the embarrassment of the choice.

The Tour de Suisse works in the same way as the Tour of the World with the difference thatthe teams virtually visit the Swisscantons rather than countries of the world. Each canton offers a great opportunity to discover extraordinary places, cultural habits or historical elements. A great opportunity to discover the country for those who unfortunately can't be there or who want to test their knowledge.
