Teambuilding: Adventure Valley Durbuy
In these COVID-plagued times, we realize that we might have been taking the social interactions at the office for granted: the casual chats at the coffee machine, inside jokes that break your work focus for just a few minutes … As consultants, we have always been quite used to not seeing our Cubis & Lytix colleagues on an everyday basis. However, once homeworking became the norm and all company events were being turned into virtual sessions, there was very little space left for these enjoyable moments.
Luckily, we have amazing bosses and a great support team who managed to organize a COVID-proof teambuilding day for us! That is why, on a rainy Friday morning, we all took to Durbuy to spend the day in the Adventure Valley. After a short breakfast, we were divided into teams to compete with each other. Each team could collect points based on the difficulty of the trails they managed to complete. There were two sorts of trails: via ferrata and altitude trails. Now, at Cubis & Lytix we do not shy away from a little competition. Not even the Belgian weather could spoil the team spirit: the battle was on.
After this small competition, we had a short but delicious lunch, followed by a free afternoon of activities. We had the option to go on a QR-code guided nature walk into Durbuy’s lovely environment. Additionally, we were left free to go ahead and explore all other activities that Adventure Valley has to offer. Nearly everyone took a ride on the Mega Zipline, the longest zipline of the Benelux. Other activities we explored were mountain biking, tubing slide, freefall, big air jump, 3D maze …
By the time everyone had let off some steam, we were all ready for some drinks and a BBQ. The amazing food tasted even better with the company of our great colleagues. After a few drinks and lots of food, we called it a day. It was wonderful seeing each other again in this risk-free environment. Thanks to everyone for an incredible day.
Hopefully, we can all see each other again soon, and stay safe
