A short summary about the establishment of SEIKLEJA.COM in 2002, how and with whom the merger happened and how it became the adventure company 360 KRAADI.
This is the year that everybody will remember because of COVID-19. We can say that because of all the isolation requirements 360 KRAADI developed number of smart games that people can play on their smart devices. We also launched our e-shop where it is easy to shop games, tickets t public events and 360 KRAADI gift cards. Smart games can be palyed in biggest cities in Estonia and some games do not need any specific location. Our e-shop is a good place to keep eye on since it is a place where all new products and public events are published.
A new phase started on 1 May 2019 – the adventure company 360 KRAADI went fully under the ownership of the event marketing company Frank Events OÜ. The two brands continue to operate separately, the selection of services will also be separate. The only change is that Frank Events OÜ is the legal entity. We will upgrade our inventory, increase the selection of games in different languages and we are planning to create new games, etc.
We organise fatbike trips across Estonia. The trips have been well received! People like combined hikes – we ride canoes to the bog, where we take a snowshoe hike. The most sought-after hike is the snowshoe hike!
People taking part in summer events can now have fun on giant SUP boards that hold 8 people.
We replace all of our two-seater kayaks with plastic ones. We have plans to buy bicycles with wide tires and by the end of the year we have 21 bicycles. A portable sauna tent is added to the hikes. All of the hikes with a sauna tent to the islets of Hiiumaa are booked.
The first portable Exit Room in Estonia is completed. We stop offering climbing activities. We update our website and launch a new version.
We acquire two-seater canoes for hikes and renting out. We move the warehouse of the camping equipment rental to Leiva street in Tallinn. In the games division, the new hit is the long-planned game Film Festival.
The hiking guide Raimo Sindonen joins the team of the hiking division. Teamwork related hiking events are added to the nature hikes.
A separate undertaking Loquiz OÜ that offers the rental of game platforms across the world grows out of the development of team building games with tablet computers.
In collaboration with Hype, a new special team building game NoEasyDay that polishes communication skills is developed. The first client of the game is Skype.
The GPS era is over and the main tool of team building games will be a tablet computer. We stop using handheld GPS devices and we are the first in the world to start offering games with the special Loquiz game software.
The new website of 360 KRAADI is finalised on 17 March.
A separate trademark Natourest grows out of the offered products that originate from nature hikes. We offer tourists bear observations in Alutaguse via our website www.natourest.ee.
