WHAT IT IS

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” HF

A fascinating naturalistic environment, beech woods, old volcanic rocks, tracks, old chestnut houses, medieval villages and further ancient cuisine traditions, some of the most known food and wines all over Italy and much more: Mount Amiata in South Tuscany is therefore an idealistic set for team-building activities that enable groups to forge a stronger team dynamic.

  • Mountain biking and e-biking tours
  • Hiking excursion
  • Survival
  • Donwhill and adventure activities
  • Horse riding
  • Cooking class

All set in the peaceful environment of Mount Amiata, surrounded by the beautiful landscapes of Southern Tuscany.

One of our members is always available to accompany guests.

PROGRAMME
  • Day 1

    Arrival

    The difference between success and failure is a great team. Let’s start getting successful!

    Pickup at the airport of Florence, Rome or Pisa. Arrival at the hotel and check-in. It takes about three hours to reach Monte Amiata from the airport. If the group arrives in time we will stop for a light lunch.

    After checking in at the hotel, take your time to recover from the journey and enjoy a welcome cocktail followed by a tour briefing. Then dinner with traditional local dishes and wines from the Monte Amiata region.

  • Day 2

    Orienteering into the beech wood

    Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” –Andrew Carnegie

    After breakfast, orienteering in the beech woods of Mount Amiata.

    Orienteering is often defined as the “intelligent sport”, in so far as one has to add accurate map-reading to considerable physical exertion. Amiata is a huge open air museum, rich in art and culture, an ideal place to find plants, animals and flowers. This activity, training and practice, will last all day long, with a pause for a picnic.

    In the morning, training supervised by local instructors: reading of a map, orienteering techniques, the compass, ecc…

    In the afternoon, orienteering session into the woods.

    In the evening after dinner we shall all go to a local bar to experience some local life.

  • Day 3

    Walking on Mount Amiata

    If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. –Henry Ford

    After breakfast, we leave the hotel to climb to the “Vetta Amiata”, the summit of Monte Amiata. The path starts at about 1400mt and passes “Generale Cantore” on the other side of the mountain threading its way through beautiful beech woods. An expert guide will show you all the best of local flora and fauna. The last section of the walk is a little harder, but you will be rewarded by the magnificent view from the top.

    Pic nic in the wood.

    In the afternoon, tree top adventure at the Amiata Indiana Park. This adventurous park is suspended high between trees and nature; there are several routes for children and adults that can be undertaken with confidence through the use of latest generation carabineers and the constant assistance of the staff. Return to hotel and dinner.

  • Day 4

    Down hill – be free to challenge gravity

    Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” –Mattie Stepanek

    In the morning Donwhill experience on Mount Amiata Bike Park Resort for a unique experience that tests your technical, physical and mental skills: going down along the clean paths, designed with different levels of difficulty for each type of request, with a bike and an expert guide at your service any time.

    In the afternoon, free time. Several activity can be offer such as

    • Relaxing at the Mount Amiata Spa or into the thermal pools of San Filippo;
    • Product tastings in local companies such as wine estate, cheese factories or olive oil mills
    • Visits to small medieval villages of the surroundings
    • Museums, castles, abbeys
  • Day 5

    Bicycle tours in Southern Tuscany

    Individual commitment to a group effort–that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. –Vince Lombardi

    We leave the Hotel and through undulating roads between beautiful castles and villages we’ll find ourselves in Etruscan lands.

    You will enjoy a served picnic in a park overlooking the scenic medieval village of Sorano, built in a tuff rock. After the visit, having crossed to the other side of the valley and tackling a short climb uphill, we’ll reach Pitigliano, known for its Etruscan past, but also for its excellent white wine.

    And finally, on a road which cuts through the sandstone, we’ll arrive at Sovana where we will visit the old medieval village with its famous square and cathedral.

    Return to the hotel in late afternoon by bus.

    Please, notice that the group will be followed by a security bus during the tour; this service is to secure the tours. The guides have tools and equipment for the bicycles. If one of the participants would like to go by car instead of bike there will always be this possibility.

  • Day 6

    Final departure

    The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team. –Phil Jackson

    Breakfast and farewell. Transfer back to airport. Departure will depend on check in times.
