Bespoke Adventures – The Importance of Outdoor Events

Extraordinary adventures in extraordinary places designed especially to meet your needs.


We live in a fast-paced world full of technology that demands our constant attention and communication – a world where it is almost impossible to shut off or go anywhere without an electronic device. According to a 2017 article by Zerega, people spend 25% less time in nature as compared to just 20 years ago.

Outdoor events are the perfect way for employees to spend some time outdoors, away from their desks, to rejuvenate their minds, bodies and souls.

Take a look at the reasons below why we at Orangeworks believe outdoor events are important: 


Improves short term memory:

A study conducted in Michigan found that after taking a walk outdoors, participants did 20% better in a memory test than before they had been outdoors.

Helps to replenish your attention span:

Nature is effortlessly fascinating and captures attention without having to be constantly focused on. Soaking up the outdoors gives you the opportunity to rejuvenate your attention stores.

Sparks creativity and inspiration:

German researchers found that simply seeing the colour green for a mere few seconds boosts creativity levels as compared to looking at other colours.

Decreases stress levels:

There is something about being out in the open that helps to reduce stress levels, the feeling of not being confined in a space, the feeling of being free. Judith Heerwagon, an environmental psychologist expressed that “just looking at a garden or trees or going for a walk, even if it’s in your own neighbourhood, reduces stress”.Orangeworks designs bespoke adventures and outdoor events in some of Ireland’s most beautiful locations. We give you and your team the opportunity to spend some time outdoors together sparking creativity, innovation and reducing stress level. Our experiences will make a lasting impact on the strengths and unity of your team.


Here’s what a previous client had to say about their outdoor team building exercise:


“This select group of senior general managers were thrilled with their accomplishments having participated in this bespoke activity for the day. You all are an absolute dream to work with and so accommodating, flexible and prepared for any curve balls thrown your way. Your warm and natural interaction with the group also cemented a truly unique and memorable experience for the group.“
