Pat Harrison, Managing Director, Woods Glass
"As culture and people, wellbeing is one of our main company values, I was feeling we were starting as a team to become disengaged. I was fortunate to be introduced to Chris Lacoste and after discussions, I felt Chris and his team have something to offer our staff.They are highly organised and very professional operators. We are very pleased with what Chris and his team have achieved to date, they continue to have groups of our people attending off-site days together.”
Mike Sullivan, Executive Director, D&H Steel Construction
“As part of our company drive to encourage staff to be active and improve their all round wellbeing we embarked on an adventure to take on the Coast to Coast challenge as teams and individuals. We engaged Chris initially to train our kayakers in the white water skills and certify them for grade 2 rivers. Our relationship with Chris has grown since and he has organised various adventures including bush tramping, snow caving, rock climbing, coastal kayaking, whitewater rafting and kayaking at WERO. We have made most of these adventures available to staff and their families. The benefits we gain from these initiatives are immeasurable and we highly recommend Chris and his team for their skills and professionalism in their outdoor offerings.”

Working hand in hand with your company


“Only strong teams can genuinely endorse company culture”

At SNM, we are committed to get your staff engaged in the experience you book.

The more engaged participants are towards the goals you want to achieve as a company (better bonding, stronger support culture etc.), the better your results, and the more convinced your team will be.

We are offering an open time to your teams, to reconnect to themselves and relate to others, building a common goal, together.

Nature Immersion

“Being in nature pushes you to open up and discover so much more”

Our nature immersion method has proven to provide better socialisation and higher personal satisfaction.

We know how experiencing team adventures in the outdoors can be an incredible way to discover more about one’s self abilities and to improve team dynamics.

Only natural experience can bring up solidarity, leverage confidence and generate mutual trust the way companies need it for their teams.


“A healthy mind in a healthy body.”

Here’s to productivity through wellbeing

Getting active has proven health benefits such as serotonin or endorphin secretion which helps with reducing anxiety or focusing issues.

Letting your people own their physical skills and figure out their body balance, even more so in an outdoor environment, will lead to unleash and maximise their mind potential.
