Corporate experiences within the UK: reconnect, inspire, educate

Pelorus Agency’s top picks for corporate experiences, all taking advantage of everything the UK has to offer.

PHOEBE LANDERS

There is very little doubt that Covid-19 and its ensuing lockdown caused us all to re-evaluate the way we travel. Although foreign holiday opportunities are beginning to open up, it is no surprise that many people, from families to corporate teams, are looking to spend more time within the UK. Relish the opportunity to get your team back together with an itinerary specifically crafted to rejuvenate, educate, and reconnect. Travelling within the UK can provide an opportunity to capitalise on reduced travel times and quieter beauty spots thanks to fewer tourists from abroad, and rediscover the adventures that are on our doorsteps.

All our accommodation partners comply with the relevant Covid-19 guidance, and we consult our newly appointed Covid-19 Travel Advisor for all of our itineraries. The UK offers countless destinations to take your team, brand, or product out from the confines of lockdown and increase productivity and performance. Celebrate your latest triumph with your colleagues in style, or incentivise your team with the promise of unforgettable experiences and unrivalled luxury.

Sailing in the Isle of Wight

Although Cowes Week might not have happened this year, there is nothing stopping you forgoing Turkey or Greece in favour of taking your clients on a trip round some of the beautiful islands off the South Coast of the UK. Whether you are an experienced sailor or looking to hire a boat with a fully qualified crew, this is a great opportunity to take to the sea and explore the coast towards Weymouth, Poole and the Isle of Wight, or be even more adventurous and sail around the Channel Islands.

The Solent is a world-famous sailing destination, with the Isle of Wight providing excellent shelter from the English Channel. This allows you to sail in healthy winds without wild, roaring seas, and your business will benefit from the fresh perspectives offered by the sea air.

Alternatively, why not travel around Scotland by yacht? At Pelorus we can organise an itinerary that makes the most of this breath-taking coastline and nearby islands.

Hike the Three Peaks

Either embark upon the famous Three Peaks Challenge (hiking the UK’s three highest peaks in 24 hours), or take the challenge at a more leisurely pace, leaving time to climb and explore the local area. Tackling Ben Nevis, in the Scottish Highlands, Scafell Pike in the Lake District, and Mount Snowdon in North Wales, you will get to see some of the UK’s best views, as well as enjoying the endorphins that come with an exhilarating climb. Embrace the journey from one place to another and re-invigorate your team’s creativity thanks to some of the UK’s most-loved nature spots.

Each of these peaks can also be tackled alone, as the surrounding areas of each provide ample opportunity for other exciting experiences, such as hikes in varied landscapes, rock climbing, or sampling the local delicacies.

Remote Glamping

Allow Pelorus and Camp Kerala to equip you with an entire glamping village, to act as your luxury base from which you can relax, enjoy delicious meals, or explore the local area. Relish the seclusion of having no one else for miles around, without losing out on luxury accommodation or catering, and even having your own private CK bar.

This is the perfect location to take part in a mindfulness workshop with your colleagues, to embrace nature and re-calibrate your purpose. The variety of locations and experiences on offer can provide you with whatever you may desire, from helicopter rides to conservation exercises.

Fly Fishing in the Hebrides

Hone your fly-fishing skills or try your hand at this very rewarding sport in one of the most beautiful locations in the UK. While the possibility of catching the elusive Atlantic Salmon is reward enough, remote rivers, craggy landscapes, and total seclusion provide the perfect backdrop for reconnecting with clients with a peaceful, yet challenging, experience. Take the opportunity to discover hidden beaches and try lobster potting under the expert eye of friendly locals.

Alternatively, you also satisfy your appetite for fly-fishing in Dartmoor, with a skyline filled by wild horses and granite tors, and a plentiful supply of fish in the clear waters.

Surfing in South Wales

Both for beginners and seasoned professionals, South Wales offers varied surfing spots along its jagged coastline. Featuring some of the UK’s most consistent waves, you can be sure to find the swell that is right for you. Pembrokeshire features over 50 beaches, and as much of the coastline forms part of the National Park, the water is beautifully clean and the surrounding landscapes are largely untouched.

The Gower Peninsula is home to challenging breaks for the more experienced surfer, as well as the famous Llangennith Beach. Its two-mile length offers consistent breaks and swells from any direction, allowing you to find the perfect sport no matter your ability level. Surprise your audiences by proving that a beautiful product launch doesn’t have to be set in Bali or the Caribbean!

The UK proves time and time again that we do not need to travel far to benefit from the great outdoors. With plenty of uncertainty surrounding how the next few months will pan out regarding travel, ensure you can go ahead with your brand activation, client experience or trip away with your team by taking advantage of all of the adventures the UK has to offer.
