Seaplanes in Split
While sailing the clear blue azure waters of the Adriatic Sea is still a must, even a yacht can be slow for those wanting to quickly jet off to one of the many upscale Islands of Croatia. Starting this summer, the impatient will have a new way to arrive in style with the introduction of seaplane service from Split.
Groups can try and catch a glimpse of one of the thousands of polar bears that inhabit Svalbard island, Norway, on a Snowmobile Safari through the colossal Sassen Valley. Skilled guides will lead a convoy of skidoos 60km into the glacier, where delegates will experience arctic temperatures and stunning sights.
Groups can try their hand at creating their own Wallace or Gromit by booking one of Animation Team Building’s plasticine workshops. Groups from ten to 200 (with large groups split into smaller teams) are briefed by professional animators and work as an animation film crew, with each person creating their own model. Equipment is portable, so workshops can be run at any venue in any location.
Swimming with Tuna
One of Malta’s newest incentive activities is swimming with Bluefin Tuna. Groups can either swim or snorkel and get up close to these gentle giants, which measure around two metres in length, before spending the rest of the day relaxing at the famous Blue Lagoon, filming location for the 2004 Hollywood blockbuster Troy.
Caipirinhas, Carnival, Corcovado, Capoeira, Copacabana are all the elements of any trip to Rio, which is on a high following the summer's World Cup fever. Try out a unique Samba team-building session with professional carnivalescos, ready for your own Carnival party in the "Cidade Maravillosa".
