Your safety is very important to us. We want you to have lots of fun, but we need to do our best to ensure safety for all participants. So please follow our guidelines below. We know team building and utdrikningslag events are all about having fun, but we still have to keep you safe!

For your safety, if you are planning on drinking alcohol, we recommend paddling to be one of your first activities of the day. We know that team building and utdrikningslag events are all about celebrating so if you do drink beforehand, we please ask you to have no more than 2 or 3 beers, otherwise it can cause safety issues.

Dress appropriately for the weather on the day. Fancy dress is welcome, but a spare change of clothes and towel is recommended just in case you do get wet! Feel free to bring everything you need with you for the day, and we can store/transport it.

Remember to always listen to your guide or instructor. They are trained in safety on the water, rescue & lifesaving. They will show you an awesome time and take care of you if you follow their instructions.


If you know which activity you would like and the date and time, please use the contact from and we will get back to you within 48hrs. If it is an urgent request then free to call us on +47 400 80 400

Note, that to secure the date and time, we need pre-payment, so we suggest you book for the minimum number of people you expect, and you can always add more people nearer the time (subject to availability but usually not an issue) – please read our terms and conditions before booking an activity with us. Price per person is based on the size of the group and becomes less the larger the group. As you add more people we automatically adjust. Please note that the limits of group size will vary from activity. We look forward to helping you with your team building, utdrikningslag or celebratory event!

The Power of Outdoor Team-Building: Beyond Bowling and Bars

In the realm of team cohesion, outdoor activities stand as a formidable catalyst for forging bonds and fostering camaraderie. Venturing beyond the confines of the office, teams immerse themselves in a shared experience that transcends the routine.

Breaking Comfort Zones, Building Trust

The magic lies in the combination of pushing boundaries collectively, acquiring new skills, and placing trust in one another. Whether scaling a rock wall, navigating a river, or conquering a ropes course, teams are thrust into situations where collaboration is paramount—creating a crucible for mutual trust and understanding. We hope to see your group soon for some Team Building in Oslo!

Investing in Camaraderie

Team building is an investment that pays dividends. The shared challenges and triumphs outdoors adventures provide create lasting memories, strengthening the fabric of the team. As colleagues navigate unfamiliar terrain together, they weave a tapestry of shared experiences that transcends the day-to-day tasks.

Beyond Bowling and Bars

While the allure of bowling alleys and bars has its place, outdoor activities offer a dynamic alternative. The physical and mental engagement required fosters a sense of achievement, providing a more profound connection than the clatter of bowling pins or the clinking of glasses. In the great outdoors, teams discover the thrill of shared accomplishment and the resilience born from facing challenges head-on – like a goat!

In conclusion, the investment in outdoor team-building activities is unparalleled. It is a strategic move that not only strengthens professional relationships but also nurtures a sense of unity that reverberates in the workplace. When considering team-building options, remember: the outdoors beckon with transformative experiences, leaving a lasting imprint that far surpasses the fleeting moments of traditional alternatives.
