Looking to bond, build and put an end to boring meetings? Get out from behind your desk and explore the outdoors with your colleagues. Oregon’s Tillamook Coast is a favorite for teams wanting an adventurous experience to break up the same old conference syndrome.  There are several professional guides who will pull back the curtain on new ways to enjoy nature—the best place to build team connections.

Ride the Rails. The newest team building option takes place on unused train tracks. Oregon Coast Railriders puts the pedal to the metal in recumbent bikes. An 11-mile round trip takes you through farmlands, across trestles and over rivers, while viewing wildlife and scenic views.

Disc Golf. There’s regular golf, and then there’s the more adventurous version. The Tillamook Coast has a new nine-hole disc golf course in Bay City on the grounds of the Sheltered Nook B&B, where both the general public and teams are welcome.

Kayaking. Whether you’ve never picked up a paddle or are a seasoned kayaker, a guided tour can bring a water-trail excursion to life. Kayak Tillamook offers tours year-round paddling throughout the Tillamook Coast.

Stand Up Paddle BoardingGlide across water like it’s glass! Janice Gaines of SUP Manzanita will launch your team on its new favorite paddle sport, and lead the team in SUP yoga, if you want to put your balance to the test.

Fat Tire Bikes. Bike riding on dunes, sand and across waves is much easier with fat tires. Shore Riders, based in Oceanside and available all along the beaches of the Tillamook Coast, will bring fat tire bikes to you and pick them up when you’re done.

Eco Adventures. Let a local tour guide take you to secret vistas, locals’ favorite beaches, and even a modern dairy farm where the milking carousel will likely be turning. Tillamook Eco Adventures offers teams a spacious and comfortable van, and customized itineraries.

Horseback Rides. Riding a horse through the waves and across a beach trail is an experience the whole team will remember. If you’re meeting near near Manzanita or Nehalem, contact Oregon Beach Rides. If you’re nearer to Pacific City, check in with Green Acres Beach and Trail Rides

Hang Gliding. How adventurous is your team? Hang gliding is a way to take your experiences to new heights, literally. Jump off cliffs and fly over the waves under the safe guidance and buddy system of Oregon Hang Gliding School. It’s the only way to get this soaring view without becoming a drone. 

Charter Fishing. Catch your own dinner, either by going out on the ocean with the dory fishing fleet in Pacific City, sailing out to the bay or ocean with Garibaldi Charters, or hooking up with Josiah Darr, a well-known fly fishing guide who can teach your team the art of casting.

As I write this, I am sitting in the Hilton Anchorage getting ready to head out for a day of tours and adventures with a group of about 30 event planners. About two weeks ago, I was in Vancouver, BC with a group of three other editors/writers doing the same thing in that city. Yeah. I know. I have a pretty fabulous job. And so, I wanted to give a shout out to the CVBs who plan these trips and help me get better acquainted to everything our region has to offer so that I can, in turn, introduce you to new places and things to do when you’re planning a meeting or event.
