Connecting with family and friends has been made easier over the years thanks to social media. But there’s more than a few things websites cannot do.
Laptops cannot hug or handshake, raise a glass to propose a toast, race down a mountain on a pair of skis or zip through a challenging obstacle course set on platforms above the trees.
Sure Facebook is an important tool but nothing beats being in a room full of family and friends, sharing details and memories that usually get overlooked in our written thoughts. There’s only one true way to engage in conversation and laughter and that’s being right in the center of it, side by side and face to face.
Granlibakken makes it easy for you to get your extended family, high school class or college chums together for some quality catch up time. Spacious lodging, an abundance of activities and delicious meals all figure into planning a reunion and all are available at Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge making it an ideal place for your reunion plans.
With 74 secluded acres of onsite play area, the resort is designed for large groups and offers packages to accommodate families and friends of 4 to 400. Granlibakken offers spectacular lodging options, and plenty of onsite amenities, including a spa, onsite yoga, a luxurious pool, hot tub and sauna, tennis courts, hiking and biking trails, beach combing or boating and nearby golf courses.
A favorite onsite activity among family and friends is Granlibakken’s Treetop Adventure Park. Made up of a series of courses linking tree platform to tree platform with a variety of bridges and zip lines, those up to the challenge can ascend to a initial tree platform and then travel through the forest on an aerial trek anywhere from 15 to 50 feet in the air.
So whether it’s the youngest of tykes in the family tree or your college chums with competitive edges, the adventure park is an ideal place to gather, test skills and have some camaraderie in the name and spirit of togetherness.
This winter you and your extended family can can ski all day at nearby resorts, on-site at Granlibakken’s own ski hill or you can go sledding and then head into the woods on cross country skis and snowshoes. Return to the lodge from your day’s adventure to a nice banquet dinner, with dancing, entertainment and memories made for a lifetime.
