Mindful hike, 2 - 4 hours: The morning begins Focus on being mindful in nature to destress, tune in to the rhythm of your intuition and reduce cluttered and unproductive thinking. Kylie will give your team all the tools they need to engage all their senses, and tap into the unconscious wilderness of our brain. This is a powerful way to destress, reconnect and promote divergent thinking ready for the planning session.
We have options for shorter or longer mindful hiking experiences depending on the fitness and ability of the team.
Morning tea: Hot drinks and light refreshments on the maunga.
Ancient forest highlights tour, 1 hour: Hear from Sanctuary Mountain staff about the birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees and what makes the conservation project at Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari truly special as the largest mainland ecological island in the world!
Lunch: Buffet-style lunch served at our one-of-a-kind bush boardroom with the birds for company!
Among giants: Short walk to the forest canopy tower to be among the canopy followed by a light stretching session in the forest shelter.
Afternoon tea: Healthy refreshments
Dinner and glowworm kayaking: Dinner on the banks of lake karapiro, followed by a glowworm kayak tour. Explore the Waikato river by kayak with the team and enjoy the magic of the Pokaiwhenua canyon with Lake District Adventures. As night arrives over Lake Karāpiro, paddle slowly up the stream and through the canyon carved out by water over many hundreds of years. When darkness falls, float silently back downstream, being guided by the glow worms on either side sparkling like fairy lights.
