TEAM RETREAT OF FINGO
Duration: 1 Week
Balance: 70% Work / 30% Play
Main Goals: To work on client’s projects and have fun
Team Building: Kayaks in Los Gigantes and Mount Teide
This year Fingo, an IT company from Poland, decided to try for the first time Workation – concept of combining work and leisure, that is becoming more popular throughout the world. After many hours of research and deciding on where to go, the team chose sunny and warm Tenerife as their final destination. Browsing on the internet for the best place to stay and work, led them to Wolfhouse in Los Gigantes.
They said to themselves “this property in Tenerife offers exactly what we are looking for – brilliant accommodation, well-appointed office with an ocean view, outdoor pool and palm garden! What else could we wish for?”, and everyone agreed!
The journey begun with a direct flight from Wroclaw (WRO) to Tenerife Sur (TFS). There are direct flights from as low as 35€, find more tips in our How to get to Tenerife with my team post.
Fingo’s team arrived after the sunset, and had a chance to get a proper look around in the morning. However at night of the arrival, team could enjoyed the magical sky – lit and full of stars. ‘There are only a few stars visible in the city, and here, we have the whole Milky Way on the sight’, they mentioned.
“Our accommodation and outdoor areas of the Wolfhouse were very spacious. There is a place for barbecue, swimming pool, small outdoor gym (bar & dumbbell) and much more. Property itself is divided into several separate apartments with a kitchenette, a bathroom, a bedroom and a living room. In addition, each of the apartments has access to a private terrace overlooking the ocean – an unearthly view, especially when combined with massive volcanic mountains right next door.”
One the team building activities that team choose to try out was Kayaking in Los Gigantes.
‘Our weekend started off with kayaks. This idea turned out to be a hit! We sailed along the majestic high cliffs. This expedition has shown us how important teamwork is – maintaining the right direction of flow requires a great deal of co-ordination and movement. Waves did not make it so easy for us! We paddled about 3 km in one direction, that was a great challenge. As a final destination we chose a small secret beach hidden between the cliffs, which literally took our breath away’.
Totally worth it!
