We’re a training, team building, adventure sports and events company based in New Zealand.

Our team building activities are run by experienced professional teams.

Safety is of paramount importance to us as it is to our clients. We assess each event being undertaken to ensure that it is safe for participants. Where there is an element of risk, this will always be properly communicated to our clients.


We try, wherever possible, to limit the amount of waste and take a mature and responsible approach to our working practices. e.g.

  • All our batteries are rechargeable
  • As much waste as possible is recycled
  • Electronic invoicing and quotations
  • We follow good practices such as “Leave No Trace” code of ethics
