Custom Outings for Adults

You gather your group, whether it be your close friends, treasured clients, or corporate team and we’ll do the guiding! We will get outside, active, and grounded leaving you refreshed, relaxed and ready to tackle the 'to do's'.

Research shows that experiencing novelty, awe and 'restorative breaks' are important for our relationships and our cognitive and creative wellbeing so consider an Elements Custom Experience for your next gathering, celebration or company event.

Hike & Happy Hour

Option: Half-Day or Full Day

We will guide you on a beautiful hike where you and your group will be shoulder to shoulder, authentically communing and connecting with each other. Let us treat you along the journey to an Elements trail-side spread of food and libations, such wine and charcuterie in the afternoon. 

If you opt for a full day, we can coordinate lunch and your choice of a creative, educational, or wellness add-on with one of our Elements Partners

Annual Outings for Adults

Overnight Annual Outings

Formerly known as reTREATs

Treat yourself to a getaway full of invigorating adventure.

Indulge in an invigorating escape. Venture out of town to the mountains of Virginia for heart pumping hikes paired with delicious food, yoga, and stays at luxurious boutique hotels.

The Elements guides do the heavy lifting, literally — by carrying picnics, maps first aid kits etc. — and figuratively by curating the routes so you can focus on the beauty! Our priority is your safety but rest assured, fun, adventure and food are all gunning for second place!
