Why Gran Canaria?
Gran Canaria is the third-largest island in the Canaries’ archipelago, and locals call it a miniature continent.
It sounds cliché to amazed tourists in travel catalogs, but when you spend some time here, you realize that it’s far from a cliché – mountains, desert, beaches, forests, colonial cities, and small hidden villages. Sound too good to be true? It’s not!
The islands belong to Spain and are not far from the mainland, making them easy to get to from around the world. You don’t need a visa if you’re a European Union resident and you can pay in €.
Known for its excellent year-round weather, Gran Canaria is a great escape, no matter what season you’re considering your company getaway in.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the city from which Christopher Columbus planned his voyage to America, and so Gran Canaria is a colonial city that beams with history, and colors. There is plenty to do and explore in the capital city, such as street concerts, restaurants, and the local night-life and surfers call it a paradise.
👥 How many people can you host?
We’ve hosted dozens of teams with everything from 5 to 60 people. We can accommodate larger groups as well, just get in contact with us here for more information.
🏄🏽 Do we have to surf at “Surf Office”?
Not all teams surf and it’s not mandatory; feel free to only surf the web instead! However, surfing is an amazing team building activity, especially if it’s your first time. If you’re up for it, we can help organize a memorable surfing trip for you.
🐎 Is the internet fast?
You can count on stable and fast internet with a backup option. You’ll also get a little pocket router with mobile internet free of charge so you can stay connected while you explore Gran Canaria.
💡 Can you help us to facilitate the whole retreat?
With the infrastructure (accommodation & workspace) and practical organization (transport, catering, reservations in restaurants, booking activities and trips, etc) you can leave everything to us. If you struggle with organizing the content of the retreat (goals, structure, schedule, hackathons, etc.) we can help using our extensive first-hand experience from hosting dozens of company retreats.
🎲 What type of team building activities can we do in Gran Canaria?
There are so many things to do from half day trips to Playa de Inglés or Roque Nublo to just exploring Las Palmas. Majority of teams prefer surfing, hiking or standup paddleboarding. You might be surprised but one of the best team building activities is to cook a dinner together.
💻 What type of work environment can we expect?
A comfortable workspace for a whole team, fast internet, meeting area with projector, flipcharts, thousands of post its and everything you need for a productive brainstormings. Did we mention unlimited coffee?
