Unrivalled Night Life
Athenians are known for their love of enjoying the finer things the city has to offer, meaning there is no shortage of bars and restaurants that are continually upping their game. Cocktails are a serious business, and at Baba Au Rum they are treated with the respect they deserve! No wonder the bar earned a spot on the Worlds Best Bar Selection 2016. Another favourite is The Clumsies, a bar that combines a modern yet cozy atmosphere with world class cocktails. For cutting edge cuisine right next to the Acropolis head to Epta, a sophisticated and imaginative restaurant that seamlessly combines the classic and the modern.

Al fresco entertainment
To make the most of the amazing climate many forms of entertainment that are usually enjoyed indoors are taken outdoors. Amazing amphitheaters like the Herod Atticus, just below the Acropolis, or Epidavrus are truly unique and unforgettable. The open air cinema is another unique Greek summer experience. Set in lush gardens or on rooftop terraces, some with views of the floodlit Acropolis. Let Metropolitan DMC arrange a private showing with cocktails & canapes under the stars!

Here’s a stirring challenge. Can any global destination match southern Africa’s “Wonder of the World” Victoria Falls (Livingstone, Zambia) for the pure thrill and wide array of adrenalin eco-adventures for incentive groups?
Can any destination also offer four countries in a day? See me at IMEX World of DMCs F430.
Victoria Falls, now in its 150 millionth fantastic year, is aptly acclaimed as the supreme Adventure Capital of Africa. It’s an incentive planner’s logistical delight as there are more than 30 adventure activities to excite the senses and all are centred on the Zambezi River and within 20 minutes from your hotel.
Then, just an hour away by coach, in Chobe National Park, Botswana, you may experience some of the finest wildlife on earth, including the largest elephant herds anywhere and the special added dimension of safari by boat, where crocodiles, hippos and elephants swimming are regular sightings. The narrow Chobe River overlooks Namibia’s Caprivi Strip and thus, as a creative DMC, we are able to offer the enticing possibility of visiting four countries in a day! You’ll have the passport stamps from Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to prove it.
The signature adventure is the world’s finest one-day white water rafting in the mesmerising gorges below Victoria Falls. Check it out on Trip Advisor – it’s the number one of 34 activities featured. You may select from half-day full-day or multi-day camping trips. Just look at www.safparrafting.com
Right up on the high-adrenalin list are several Wow! Wow! Wow! activities that include taking a plunge in the rock pool at the very edge of the mightiest curtain of falling water in the world (with a 111m drop); canoeing the Zambezi through gentle rapids but being ever-aware of the presence of hippos and crocodiles; micro-lighting over the falls; the gorge swing and the terrifying 111m bungee jump off the bridge with the Victoria Falls as a backdrop.
Look at all of this and many more temptations on www.theexplorerfclubaftica.com and Let’s Keep Exploring!
The Copper Canyon is one of the longest and deepest canyon systems in the world, by far larger than the Grand Canyon. A spectacular railroad crosses the canyon, and the area is also home of the Tarahumara.
The Tarahumara Indians – also known as “The Running People“ – have been doing long-distance running contests through the immense Copper Canyon for hundreds of years. They just wear sandals, and they don’t train. Your Incentive to the Copper Canyon can include running and competing next to Tarahumara runners.
Thrill-seekers can also zip across the canyon along seven lines as high as 450 meters above the ground, for a total length of 5km.
Athens may have a reputation for it’s relaxing atmosphere, however there is plenty to offer for those who prefer a more action packed program.

High roping forest
Climb the outdoor high roping course filled with obstacles between the trees. Different scenarios offer different challenges from a height of 10 meters to 22 meters above ground. The course offers great fun and an excellent way to do team building and push boundaries.
Imagine if you could fly? Imagine if you could control your movements through the air, without the risk associated jumping from a plane. Well, Copenhagen offers just that experience. Body flight is a unique way to feel like you are soaring through the air feeling free. The wind tunnel in Copenhagen is blowing a constant stream of air, giving you the feeling of being weightless, allowing you to learn how to fly without leaving the ground.
Quite time in the sky
Enjoy the peace of the skies, as you take off in one of the beautiful hot air balloons. While the air is getting thinner, the view keeps getting better. Gaze upon the landscape of Denmark, while you drift below the skies towards Malmö in Sweden.
Water is Blue, Wind is Green
Hop onboard the RIB boat, as we take you out of the vast sea of Oresund, speeding past the old forts. The combination of speed, water mist in the air, and the scenery will leave you breathless. Along the tour, you will see one of Denmark greatest windmill parks with over 20 windmills.
This adventure starts by crossing the Mayan jungle (near Cancun/Riviera Maya) on board a Mercedes Benz Unimog, and then rappelling 12 meters down into a beautiful turquoise ‘cenote’ or sinkhole. The Yucatan Peninsula has over 3000 cenotes, formed by underground fresh water rivers, and sacred to the Maya because they represented the entrance to the underworld.
The adventure continues by flying over the lush jungle on a zip-line, and snorkelling in the otherworldly Nohoch Nah Chiich cavern. This is the entrance to the Sac-Actun system, the longest underground river on earth!
At the end of this amazing experience, a local shaman will perform a Mayan purification ceremony.

Considered to be the dish which Poland is famous for, Pierogi is good for all occasions. Whether eaten in a high-class restaurant, in a market place cafe with a cold beer, or home-cooked for a few friends – it’s hard not to eat in and enjoy them.
As everybody likes eating well and if it takes place in a nice scenery of Krakow’s places and if in addition this food is being prepared before our very eyes by a person, who is not only an excellent cook but also tells brilliant stories about origins of prepared dishes… This is a very interesting activity for people interested in getting to know more about the Polish culture and, of course, its gastronomy! We start in the morning walking Old Kleparz market where we will buy the ingredients for today’s cooking class. For the pierogi – dumplings, we will hand out a buying list, together with a few euros – at Kleparz, all ingredients are fresh and best quality.
In the restaurant the chef is already waiting for us with all necessary equipment and cooking stands and ready to start preparation of pierogi. In the beginning of the lesson, you will receive a booklet of Polish recipes for pierogi. Pierogi are served in a variety of forms and tastes ranging from sweet to salty to spicy. Pierogi were traditionally peasant food, but eventually spread in popularity throughout all social classes, including nobles. They are served at many festivals, playing an important role as a cultural Polish dish.
Roll up your sleeves and put on your aprons for a few hours of hands-on cooking – Polish style!
