The Quest for the Silver Oryx, Oman

It was supposed to be the ultimate thrill of a lifetime, an abseiling adventure in the mountains

Your team just couldn’t resist going for it. A roller coaster ride up and down the rugged mountain trails in 4 x 4, lots of laughter, a sense of exhilaration… and you’re out of gas and LOST.

You’ve lost your money, your plane ticket, and your passports. All that you have left is the clothes on your back and the one luxury item you managed to sneak inside your gear.

Tired and hungry, you run into a goat herder who shows you where to trade the silver Oryx to buy gas a special craft or artifact.

You discover a beautiful oasis just over a mountain pass. It’s like a scene from the movie Lost Horizon…you’ve found your Shangri-la. You develop a strategy to market your craft and raise the money for the journey home.

Oman is a VERY rugged country and it takes time to get around. It is HIGHLY recommended that your arrive early on the first day and stay in a mountain village for at least one night.


In Malaysia, corporate teams can enjoy a range of outdoor team challenges as they explore the theme of scaling new heights in the face of change and economic turbulence:

  • Cameron Highlands (tea plantation tour, afternoon tea, strawberry picking, & post- COVID-19, visit indigenous Orang Asli village, jungle trekking)
  • Kota Kinabalu (Via Ferrata, treetop canopy walk, ATV rides, hot springs, quad biking)

Switzerland – Mountain Team Building

Switzerland Team Building

The Alps offers panoramic views the perfect backdrop to unpack the themes of our mountain team building simulation. Paragliding, hiking, quad tours, and canyoning are some of the adventures for executive retreats that await I Switzerland

After spending so much time cooped up at home, plenty of people already have more than a touch of cabin fever. Time spent on the mountain seems like a good way to dispel it. Safe, too—it is an outdoor activity, after all.
