Mont Blanc Ultra Trail - A stunning morning to head into Italy from France: above the Mottets refuge

Tailormade Corporate Trips


Overview

The mountains have provided challenges throughout our history, and continue to do so. The snow clad summits, the staggering cliffs, and the lush green valleys are the 'playground' for a whole range of activities which tap into our desire for adventure and new experiences. 

Incentive rewards need to be exciting and offer the chance to experience something that is new, unique, fun, and inspirational. We want your team to leave the mountains feeling special, appreciated, valued and above all loyal to your company. 

Mountain adventure offers all of this through any number of thrilling experiences from climbing a vertical rock face, to husky dog sledding in the Arctic Circle, from ice climbing, to paragliding and soaring through the skies like a bird. 

We have been introducing our guests to the joy of the mountains since 2006 and through our local expertise and contacts we are well placed to organise a truly unique experience for your team. A combination of outdoor adventure, fascinating history, amazing experiences and first class accommodation will help strengthen corporate culture, and leave your team ready to return to the workplace with renewed enthusiasm. 

You can also take a look at the Itinerary section above for just a few ideas which may help you to make a start. Or if you already know what you want then get in touch with our office. 


Tracks and Trails helped our Portland, Oregon based team organize a trail running trip for a group of 65 people. The goal was to give our group a trail running experience that would challenge them while giving them a sense of the world famous UTMB and CCC races. Lindsay played an integral part in helping us identify the best experience for our guests both on and off the trail. Once we arrived in Chamonix Julia got to know our team, our group goals, and it set us up for success. Julia and Lindsay hired a rock-star team. Having spent quality time with the entire team I would highly recommend them to a corporate group. The entire experience from planning to execution was a pleasure.

 

Itinerary

We can create bespoke adventure itineraries to suit most requests. We have extensive experience in the European Alps, and in particular in France, Switzerland, and Italy. In Scandinavia in winter we also have a breadth and depth of knowledge of running trips in Norway, Sweden, and Finland. 

We will soon be giving suggested itineraries for your corporate event, but in the meantime please contact us to discuss your requirements. 

Accommodation

On all our trips we aim to accommodate our guests in well-situated, clean, characterful, family run accommodation. We are painstaking in our research to give you the best option possible and one that is good value. Our suggested accommodation, listed below, is subject to availability at the time of booking. We have given details of our favoured venues and those we intend to use. If unavailable we will book alternative accommodation of a similar standard.

Our trip fees are based on two people sharing a room. If you are travelling on your own your booking will be based on a twin bedroom sharing with someone of the same gender. 

However, on many of our trips single rooms are available on request for a supplementary fee. We recommend booking as early as possible to secure a single room as these are always limited in number. Please contact us for details. 


  • Please note that you must have the appropriate insurance for your chosen activity. As we will be travelling in the mountains, you must be covered for helicopter rescue, repatriation and medical costs. We also advise you to take out Trip Cancellation/Curtailment Insurance in the event of you being unable to join the trip for whatever reason. NB: The insurance referred to below should only be purchased AFTER we have confirmed that your trip is guaranteed to run. 

    For ease of reference the clause relating to Insurance as set out in our Terms and Conditions is given below:

    Insurance: It is a condition of booking that you are insured against medical expenses, injury, illness, death, cost of repatriation, and personal accident risks. This must include cover for the activities to be undertaken during the trip. For tours taking place outside the United Kingdom you must ensure that your insurance covers rescue from the mountains, including helicopter rescue. It is the right of the leader to make a decision to call for helicopter rescue if such assistance is needed. Costs incurred by you, the client, due to an evacuation, rescue or other emergency event shall be your responsibility. Any subsequent costs incurred for expenses not limited to but including such costs as hotels, food, transport etc shall be borne by you, the client. You are responsible for ensuring insurance cover is adequate for the particular needs of your chosen activity. You must be fully aware of the implications involved in arranging your own travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of the policy. By agreeing to our Terms and Conditions you are authorising Tracks and Trails Ltd or the person employed to lead the trip for Tracks and Trails Ltd to instigate rescue and/or helicopter evacuation procedures without previously obtaining the permission of the company issuing your insurance policy. We reserve the right to cancel your booking at any time if we are not satisfied you have the necessary insurance policy covering your activity. Please ensure that your insurance covers you to the maximum altitude given on your trip itinerary. If you are unsure or are joining a bespoke trip then please contact us for specific details. Most of our trips have a maximum altitude of 3,000 metres, except the Tour de Monte Rosa which reaches 3316m. You must bring all insurance documentation with you at the time of the activity. We also recommend your insurance covers you for trip cancellation and baggage loss/damage. Tracks and Trails Ltd are unable to accept responsibility for the loss or damage to any client equipment or luggage.

    For further details, please read the Insurance section on our website.

  • The standard of accommodation is entirely up to you. If you are choosing to base your trip in a town such as Chamonix, France, or Zermatt, Switzerland then a huge range of accommodation is on offer from 5 star luxury spa hotels, to comfortable 2 star family run hotels. The fabulous Grand Hotel Zermatterhof in Zermatt offers a luxury experience, as does Chamonix's Hotel Mont Blanc.

    If you wish to include a true mountain experience and spend a night high in the mountains there are many characterful 'refuges' perched in the most amazing remote locations. The accommodation in a refuge is basic, and more often than not the sleeping arrangements are dormitory style. An excellent 'bonding' experience! Some such as the fabulous Rifugio Bonatti, in Aosta Valley, in Italy or the Rifugio Averau, in the Dolomites offer a more comfortable experience with bedrooms available, hot showers, excellent food and good wines. 

  • Mountain weather can vary considerably. Temperatures can reach over 30°C in mid-summer (July/August), but can drop to 5°C on the high passes. It is often sunny with good clear days, but it can rain and snow (even in July or August) so you should be prepared for any eventuality. 

    In winter the temperatures in the mountains can range from 8˚C on a sunny afternoon to minus 10˚C on a chilly morning. Temperatures in both the Alps and Scandinavia can drop to minus 20˚C and lower. In winter the weather can involve continuous snowfall, and strong winds so you should be prepared for cold, possibly wet weather. It can also be very sunny, and pleasantly warm. 

  • We feel strongly about protecting the environment and do not encourage the use of single-use plastic items. We would ask that you arrive with a ‘water bottle’ or ‘hydration system’ that can be used repeatedly. We would point out that we operate a ‘zero tolerance’ for rubbish, and would ask you to remove all your rubbish items from the mountain even those you consider to be bio-degradable. You can read our full policy here.


The dates for your corporate tailor-made trip will depend on the activities you wish to include and whether they are winter or summer sports. Clearly we can offer trips and activities all year round, but some activities such as cross country skiing can only be done in winter, and likewise rock climbing or hiking can only be done in summer. It will also depend on the location as again this will be affected by the seasons. 

With regard to price this is entirely dependent on what is included in your corporate package and how many guests are involved. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
