Raft building is a real team building classic. The same things apply here as in real working life: taking on challenges together, planning, implementing, and not to be thrown off when something unexpected happens. With this, an unbelievable amount of fun arises, thrills and team power! An unusual company trip in order to finally come out of the four walls of the office or home office. And a big “thank you” to the team!

Is it possible to keep your distance during raft building?

Yes, the raft building team event is even possible with distance. The beams of our rafts are long enough so that one colleague can be responsible for each of the four edges. The building of the raft is very easy, instructions given from a distance are enough. Even during the maiden voyage, it is easy to keep your distance: our rafts offer enough space, as drinks crates, provisions and rucksacks are transported during the maiden voyage.

“Maiden voyage?!”

Yes, you read that correctly – during the raft building team event, you team doesn’t only build their raft, but also sets off to test it. You decide whether a water fight, a regatta or only a relaxed paddle tour comes from it. If the participants feel safe on the rafts, we offer some competitions: who can fish the most rubber ducks out of the water? Who can find the sunken treasure in the lake?

Are wet feet guaranteed?

Not necessarily! Our rafts can’t capsize. They have been checked for safety, stability and environmental friendliness by the waterways and shipping office in Freiburg. Bringing sturdy shoes and a change of clothes won’t do any harm, as a raft is of course only as stable as it is built.
