Top Things to Do in Hamilton for Your Company Year End

Do you work in Hamilton or looking for a fun way to spend your company year-end while improving workplace relationships? Well, luckily, we live in a country and region full of amazing and adventurous activities. Waikato offers many different team building activities, and in this article, we are taking a closer look at them. Take a look at our list some of the things you can do for your company year-end in Waikato!

Fun Things to Do in Hamilton and Surroundings for A Company Year End

Explore Hamilton by Bike

Cyclists are spoilt for choice with an abundance of bike trails in Hamilton and the wider Waikato. Close to home, the Waikato River Paths double as a walkway and cycleway along the banks of the Awa. For a bit more thrill, the Hamilton Mountain Bike Park in Pukete has beginner and advanced tracks surrounded by native tree plantings.

A little further away, there’s the 70km Te Awa River Ride that starts in Ngāruawāhia and ends in Horahora (20km south of Lake Karāpiro). You can hire a bike through River Riders with three conveniently located pick-up and drop-off points along the cycleway (Ngāruawāhia, Hamilton and Cambridge). Perfect for a team that loves cycling!

Visit The Shire

Hamilton is a hop, step and a jump to none other than Hobbiton. In 1998, Peter Jackson and his team scouted the country for the perfect location to build Hobbiton and, luckily for us, he stumbled upon a farm in Hinuera (a ten-minute drive from Matamata).

Embark on a walking tour and be guided around The Shire, which remains largely intact from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Channel your inner Frodo as you wander the paths, knocking on doors of hobbit holes and—of course—having a refreshing drink at the iconic Green Dragon Inn.

Even if you are from the Waikato, this is still a fun team building activity!

Ag Drive Team Building

At Ag Drive Team Building you can take your team building and year end fun to an entire new level! There are two different packages to choose from that includes off-road Polaris Luv tracks, The Digger Challenge, Tire Pull Challenge, Barrel Race, and with bigger groups, you can include the CamJet Jetboat!

Speed Down the Waikato with CamJet

Speeding up the mighty Waikato in a 350hp V8 jet boat is going to get the heart pumping, adrenaline flowing and faces smiling.

A unique opportunity to visit the Karapiro Dam, see amazing native bush and wildlife. Ideal for whole families, work group, friends and anyone who likes adventure, adrenaline, speed and pristine scenery. 

Perfect for a crazy and fun team building activity this December!
