Nothing gets adrenaline going more than a challenge and a competition amongst friends and colleagues. From the heart pumping race of a treasure hunt to the extremes that come on all sorts of wire and heights, set a challenge to really get the flow going.
A high-tech treasure hunt with tablets takes a trail through the La Paz Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica to stunning Intagram spots of beautiful waterfalls. For a more competitive pace, Copenhagen sets teams against each other in their Tivoli Gardens. Use the interactive maps to unlock tasks when moving around the gardens and discovering different areas. The goal? Uncovering a cool place to dine – does the last team in buy dinner? (Copenhagen also offer a city challenge with tablets, a fun way to see the city)
There are sporting challenges too. Learn the great sport of kings, polo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Learning to swing a mallet from on top of hay bales – or a horse even – and aim for goal, before settling down to get the adrenaline up watching an exhilarating professional match. Or kick off the day – literally – with the rush of a Muay Thai class in Bangkok, Thailand. Master moves and discover a hidden talent brought out by Thai boxer training. Or get on board, not bored, at a surf lesson on the sea off Lisbon. They say “going to Portugal and getting a surf lesson is like going to Rome and seeing the Pope. Can’t miss it.”
There’s paintballing and much more at the X-Park in Kiev, and a team-based shooting game in Seoul.
The challenge stakes get even higher when it comes to wire. There is zipping across the amazing Tara River gorge, solo or doubled up with a colleague – experiencing clear blue sky above and clear blue water below. And in Stockholm start with the high-rope course challenge, from Low Adventures to The Extreme before taking to wire and heading to the city’s rooftops on a unique blend of climbing and sightseeing.
When it comes to the edge, step out of the 22nd floor of the Tallinn TV Tower, and walk around the top of Estonia’s tallest building, 175 metres up. The views are quite amazing – as they are at the top of Table Mountain, Cape Town. The difference between the two? You stay on the platform Tallinn. In Cape Town, you go over the edge, as you abseil off the mountain toward the city below.
