Swiss Cycling Retreat
Just imagine …waking up in a beautiful castle, having breakfast with a stunning view over the Alps rising up from the mountain lake while getting ready to go for a bespoke ride with your colleagues in the famous Swiss mountains accompanied by your personal ridemeister. Imagine stopping over for lunch at a typical farmhouse at the top of your climb and later descend back to the beautiful lake and your ‘home of the retreat’ castle, where you can relax and listen to an inspiring talk while enjoying a glass of wine on the terrace watching the sunset.
A dream? Not at all! Monika Sattler invites you to an all Swiss, corporate cycling retreat. Share her love for cycling, great food, inspirational talks and of course the Swiss mountains.
Continue to read your Swiss Cycling Retreat program. Of course, every program will be fully tailored to match the desired content and outcomes of your program.
Arrival at your ‘home of the retreat’, the prestigious castle hotel Schloss Gerzensee. From the hotel you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the Bernese mountain chain including the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau for the entire retreat.
You will meet with Monika and enjoy your welcome dinner as kick-off for your retreat experience.
You will start the day with a healthy and nutritious breakfast at the hotel and prepare for a gorgeous and active day of riding. Today, you will enjoy a custom ride into the Swiss Alps designed by Monika herself.
Read what Monika says about what you can expect from riding her favorite Alpine roads; ” The scenery of the Berner Oberland is just spectacular. With the famous Jungfrau Peak, Lake Thun, Grindelwald and Interlaken, the region is known for its beautiful mountains and lakes. Whether we go flat around Lake Thun or climb up the Grimsel pass, this region offers it all. My personal favorite is up the “Grosse Scheidegg”, a smaller and quiet ride up to oversee a dramatic mountain scenery.”
You will enjoy lunch during the ride at a typical farmhouse after reaching the top of your climb. Then it is time to descend back to the lake and your ‘home of the retreat’. Should you opt for the flat ride, you can imagine a beautiful lakeside lunch. Not that bad either.
Back in the castle it is time to relax and prepare for your evening dinner. How about that for a first day of retreat!
Today is a little bit different than yesterday. Of course you will start the day with another healthy and nutritious meal. After that, we leave the hotel for a nice morning ride around the lakes and Interlaken. We will make sure to cruise, enjoy and leave some energy for the afternoon program.
Back at the castle we will enjoy lunch and get ready for an inspiring afternoon seminar with Monika.
Be inspired by Monika who is not only a cycling world record holder but also a TEDx speaker, author and entrepreneur. You can choose for the seminar from various topics that Monika is a thought leader and speaker on. Her topics include:
Goal setting and achievement
How to have the courage to think and act big!
Teamwork – the secret ingredients to achieve the impossible
Diversity in the corporate environment – It is not about a quota!
Self-reflection – What are your true strengths, likes and values and how can you apply them in your professional life?
How women successfully lead the way
(The seminar part is flexible and of course also open for companies to reserve time for your own topics and speakers. Just let us know how you envision to use this time of energized inspiration with your colleagues)
We will end the Saturday with a last evening dinner together at the castle.
Sunday is departure day, but not before you get the maximum energy and inspiration out of your exclusive retreat!
We will use the morning for breakfast and a final mesmerizing ride with Monika leading up to a well deserved lunch. Only then it’s time for goodbye’s and great reflections, before you head home. For sure with renewed energy, everlasting memories and a lot of inspiration.
