Teambuilding / Conference Ice breaker
The Vikings - in the footsteps of the Vikings
Build your own drakkar (Viking ship) with instructions from a comic strip. Then decorate it with your tribe’s colours and heraldic sign. Take a break in the beach bar, surrounded by ‘real’ Vikings. We finish the half-day activity with a naval contest: the tribe with the best drakkar, is the winner. A fantastic teambuilding activity at the coast or near the water. We provide lifejackets and a lifeboat for safety.
Hagar the Terrible wasn't given his nickname just for nothing. The Vikings were tough, mean, and barbaric fighters, who swarmed from Scandinavia to the rest of the world: England, our regions, and even America. They plundered everything they encountered and caused havoc everywhere. The booty went into their pockets.
Why were they that successful? Why could no one stop them?
Because they had the strongest fleet at their disposal. Giant, sturdy, savage vessels. Impressive three-masters, decorated with busts of mermaids and goddesses. No one could hinder them in any way.
Today your teams will follow in the footsteps of Hagar and his companions. They will challenge the other tribes in a race on the water in their self-constructed Viking vessel. By means of authentic images (comics) and with enough materials available they construct the structure, hull, and oars of the ship. Stretching, lashing, hoisting, and painting. Because of course, the proud coat of arms of the tribes is displayed on the sails.
The Vikings easily covers a complete afternoon. The teams will have around four hours in order to construct their vessel and make it ready for sailing. The objective? A super-fast boat in which the whole team fits. That completes the passage around the buoys fastest at the stirring-up rhythm of the drums. At the beach, we will install a beach bar (optional) where 'real' Vikings provide for the necessary beer and keep the atmosphere excellent.
To ensure some variety in your event, we can include additional challenges. Your teams will perform tests for money, which they can spend in our shop.
More rope, an extra large sail, and a bigger drilling machine - all those things will come in handy in the heat of the battle.
