corporate retreats in North Carolina

Only a few states in the United States have it all: from beaches to mountains, lakes to forests. At 560 miles east to west, North Carolina is the longest state east of the Mississippi, and is one of those special places. Wilder Retreats has a personal connection to the Tar Heel State, so let’s dive into your North Carolina corporate retreat. To get started, contact us regarding company retreat planning services today.



Wilder Retreats is the leader in nature-based corporate retreats. We customize our team off-sites to be accessible for everyone. Luckily, North Carolina boasts miles of adventures for every season and adventure level. Here are a few ideas for your company retreat.

Navigating a raft down a river is impossible without teamwork, communication, and problem solving skills. Within the Nantahala National Forest, The Nantahala River is the ideal setting for a team adventure that delivers excitement and fun, alongside growth and transformation. Wilder Retreats can easily plug this outing into your corporate retreat agenda, ensuring your meeting needs are met, meals are prepared for every diet, and an unforgettable time is had by all.

What is Your Vision?


We ask every Wilder Retreats client that question, and we rarely get the same answer. Corporate retreat goals range from reconnection to conflict resolution, creative inspiration to strategic planning. Other times, the leadership team sees the value in courting investors outside of the boardroom. 


Whatever your North Carolina corporate retreat goal, Wilder is here to be your partner from start to finish, helping you and your team exceed it.
