After intense consultation the main focus, program modules and the length of the seminars are individually coordinated according to our customers’ objectives in order to achieve the greatest possible and sustainable learning success.


This is our brief introductory course. It is suitable for all classes, and offers the participants and accompanying educators an initial impression of our adventure-based education.


This course is recommended for classes which have the time – after an initial period of adjustment – to go deeper into the next challenging phase of adventure-based education. Individual development and a collaborative team environment are the ultimate goals. The program is individually tailored to each class. With a two- to three-day expedition in the alpine area, the group can stay overnight in a bivouac/igloo, or in a self-catering cabin.


Those classes lucky enough to have more than one week to take part in one of OUTWARD BOUND’s extended courses have the chance not only to go on stunning mountain hikes, but also to experience overnighting in the simple beauty of the wild outdoors. Through the extended time frame, group processes develop into a more intent positive team experience, creating truly unique and unforgettable moments.


We work exclusively with pedagogically and professionally highly qualified trainers and adapt our courses individually and process-oriented to the needs of our customers.
