Travel incentives in Tuscany are becoming very popular and for good reason! If you are looking for an alternative, exciting teambuilding or company activity, Tuscany is a wonderful place for this. At Altratoscana, groups and teams can experience multi-day donkey trekking, guided or self-guided walking tours with GPS, and so much more.
Many airlines offer flights to Pisa or Florence from European airports. From the airport, a taxi service will take you to your accommodation. Everything is organised and arranged so you can fully enjoy the exciting trip with your team!
Donkey trekking in teams
Discover Tuscany through the rhythm of nature
Ezeltochten in de mooiste streek van Italië. De tochten zijn self-guided: met behulp van een GPS lopen jullie in een of meerdere groepen naar het hotel. Jullie kunnen de trekking ook samen met een Nederlandstalige gids te doen.
You start with a training at the riding school where you learn how to take care of the animals and saddle them. Then you do it yourself! The route follows quiet, wide roads past farmhouses, as well as narrow paths through fields and forests in the middle of the Tuscan hills.
The donkeys and the environment will completely change the traditional division of roles in the group. This is a good opportunity to think about mutual relationships, communication, using each and everyone's skills and the cohesion of the team.
The next day, you continue your trek to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the region or opt for a trip to Siena or Florence.
Example of a three-day donkey trek:
A three-day donkey trek starts with an afternoon of training at the Pomarance stables. Here you will learn how to groom, take care of and walk with a donkey. After the training, a preliminary ride of about 1 km is taken to test your skills. The following morning you depart for your donkey trek. During the trek, you leave civilisation behind on route to an agritourism wine farm. Situated on the edge of a nature reserve where a warm welcome awaits you upon your arrival. Here you can relax by the swimming pool with a glass of wine or opt for additional teambuilding activities with our team coaches. The following day, the path along the Trossa River will lead you back to the stables. This trek builds a team spirit and will help your group feel more relaxed and satisfied through being around each other... you did this together!
Hiking with GPS
Multi-day walking tours through the hills and old villages in the heart of Tuscany.
The walking tours of Altratoscana are an alternation of adventurous, narrow paths and dirt roads between the fields. Every now and then a river crosses the path and you have to get dry on the other side together. You are walking in an undiscovered area and you will not meet anyone along the way. That creates a real away-from-the-world feeling. Walking through the beautiful Tuscan countryside, there is plenty of time to talk and get to know each other. Halfway, in a sunny spot on the water, you can have a picnic for lunch. Then you walk further on the route indicated on the GPS device.
At the accommodation you can opt for pure relaxation at the pool side or additional company activities. These activities can be specifically focused on teambuilding with one of our coaches or on relaxing activities such as wine tasting or a cooking class.
The self-guided GPS tours take one, two or three days. It is possible to always stay at the same accommodation and make day trips or you can opt for hiking from agriturismo to another (farmhouse accommodation).
The routes and how the GPS operates are explained during the briefing on the first day. We take care of the luggage transportation to your next destination so that each walker only carries a small backpack with a packed lunch.
The hikes in Tuscany are company outings suitable for all. These walks appeal to nature lovers, sports enthusiasts, culture lovers and gourmets alike!
