The Algarve is one of the most popular locations in Portugal for tourism. With its long coast, many beaches and warm climate its a great location all year round for incentives and events.
The Algarve is located in the south of Portugal stretching from the west coast along the south coast to the Spanish border. It is roughly 5000 km2 in size and home to roughly half a million people.
Most famous for its long, sandy beaches, it is the oldest area of Portugal for international tourism.
During the hot summer months, it is invaded by mass tourism but even during this time, there are plenty of quiet spots and secluded areas to find. Out of the peak season, it is a perfect location for business and group events of all types.
In previous articles, we suggested the best hotels for events in the Algarve and things to do, in this article we will suggest some of the best team building activities in the Algarve.
TEAM BUILDING IN THE OUTDOOR
With its mild, sunny climate and its beaches and inland nature areas the Algarve is best suited to out door team building, note we build bespoke team buildings for groups traveling to Portugal if your team building is not mentioned, please contact us!
The first team building that comes to mind in an area with so many beaches! Beach games can be a great way for teams to compete and de-stress in the sun and sand. Beach games are organized in many areas of the Algarve and can consist of ball games, rope games, sand castle building and others. For the more adventurous SUP, stand up paddle board, surf, kayaking and other forms of boating can be added.
A treasure is an exciting and fun way to build teams. With a set of challenges through the city, teams get to know the locations, the food and habits of the local people and have fun with each other. We provide treasure hunts any where in the Algarve for groups of 30 upwards.
Quad and buggy challenges
Away from the beaches, there is a completely undiscovered and different Algarve to be found. Inland rivers and streams, hilly and mountainous lands and undiscovered villages make a great back drop for adventurous team buildings using quads and or buggies to go to places hard to access in other ways. This can be done as a tour or a challenging adventure of discovery!
