Team building activities Stockholm – from speed boats to whisky tasting!

Scandinavia has a huge range of options for corporate events. From Lapland snow experiences in the north to chic design hotels in the south (here’s one of our favourites in the Danish capital Copenhagen).

Last week the Effective Event Solutions team were out in Stockholm, Sweden with a group of senior executives from offices around the globe. Following a successful few days of meetings and private dinners, we took them out to experience the city in a totally different way … from the water!

Stockholm city is composed of 14 islands surrounded by the archipelago waters and a further 2,000 islands (many uninhabited) deeper out towards to the Baltic sea. Almost 30% of Sweden’s capital city is made up of waterways so getting the opportunity to go out on the water is must!

We took 24 guests (in full wind & rain proof outfits!) out on RIB speedboats to race around the archipelago. Each team was given a nautical map and a booklet of challenges / questions from which they designed (and navigated!) their own route with the aim of winning the most points.

After an adrenaline filled hour and a half on the archipelago, the jubilant teams were welcomed to Fjäderholmen island for a VIP whisky tasting at Mackmyra.

The Mackmyra distillery is the first in Sweden and produces a variety of single malts. Our group were able to taste 7 varieties with the expert guidance of an in-house whisky master. Once we had warmed everyone up with a few whisky drams we took a leisurely tour boat cruise through central Stockholm city with a local guide telling tales and stories as we sailed.

To end the day in true Scandinavian style we took the group for a sumptuous dinner at Restaurant J Nacka with fine wines and beautiful night time views of the archipelago.
