The answer is yes and it comes in the form of culinary activities such as wine tasting, olive oil tasting and visits to wineries and olive oil mills. Wine tourism and olive oil tourism are increasingly popular in the province of Malaga - for many reasons - but particularly because of the wide range of team building experiences that are available in the area.

Escape rooms

Escape rooms are an increasingly popular team building activity. In the game, participants will be locked into a room that has a specific theme. To be able to escape from the room, players need to solve a series of challenges and clues, which are connected to the story, within a certain time frame, which tends to be 60 minutes. It's the perfect team building activity as the challenges have been designed to be resolved as a team, rather than as an individual. The tasks need to be shared out and players need to use skills like communication, leadership and teamwork to make it out of the room. This is not a game based on intelligence; it's a game based on teamwork.

So now you know everything there is to know about team building and you've got some inspiration, what are you waiting for? Discover everything the province of Malaga has to offer you and your team, and start reaping the benefits of team building.
