Welcome party- you need to ensure that the employees are excited and eager about what you have in store for their re-treat, to thrill them right from the start you can host a welcome party, making them feel a part of the company and give them a sense of being important.
Hiking- After a long hour at the meet or conference, you can take your people for a nice hike to the valleys or in the forest, this will not only keep them healthy and fresh but also be an ice-breaking session for employees to know each other and enjoy the natural sojourn.
Boating- If there is a water body nearby, then you can undertake a time-based boating competition as a team building activity for fun or make groups and send them for leisure water-back hours so, that they can de-stress and get a change of environment.
Sightseeing- You can take your employees to heritage hubs so, that employees can embrace the traditional side and feel a deep connection with the place. It will be a memorable idea as it is not a frequent option to go for otherwise.
Leisure hour- Give your colleagues some time for themselves during the business travel stay so, that they can rejuvenate themselves by doing whatever they want to around the venue. This will create a good image of yours, that you are an employee- friendly company.

Party games- Indoor games though give an informal touch aren’t a bad option to go for as a retreat activity. A card game , jenga, monopoly or even snakes and ladders work marvellously in making your employees comfortable and forget internal differences.
