The best teambuilding activities foster camaraderie and collaboration. If you’re looking for the perfect way to bond your team and leave them with an unforgettably exhilarating experience, look no further than some of Montréal’s most thrilling activities.

Right on target

Make sure your group’s aim is true with an activity that’s both fun and precise.  Your attendees will master the art of Viking axe-throwing at Rage Axe Throwing Centre. At Laser Game Evolution, players navigate three multi-level mazes that are, at once, obscure and confusing.

All for one, and one for all

Escape rooms and mazes unite groups in a quest for safe passage to freedom involving puzzles to be solved, mysteries to be cracked, and a race against the clock. A/Maze MontréalFind the Key, and EZKAPAZ offer a variety of hair-raising escape games involving brainteasers and tasks better tackled together than alone. A/Maze even offers a mobile escape car that teams must get started using clues scattered throughout the vehicle that can be transported to any location. Lighter in tone but every bit as entertaining, make your way through the Old Port’s SOS Labyrinthe as either a pirate on the move or a crime-solving detective (check the schedule for the daily themes).

Get teams racing against the clock with Scavenger Hunt Anywhere’s Old Montréal clue-driven tour of the area (ending with a well-deserved meal in one of the area’s fine dining establishments at the finish line), or TEAM Building’s Urban Challenge, modelled after the hit television series The Amazing Race. Teams love racing through the waters in a dragon boat with H2O Dragon Boat. Another option: remain on street level with Canada's first geogaming startup, Walking Brain.

The highest highs!

Fears are best faced together, and Montréal holds a wealth of options to reach brave new heights and overcome some phobias while you’re at it. Fly over the Old Port on the MTL Zipline. Climb at Centre d’Escalade Horizon Roc indoor rock-climbing gym. Or let La Grande Roue de Montréal, Canada’s tallest observation wheel, do the heavy lifting and take in the views over the city and St. Lawrence River.

The fast and the curious

Let your attendees fulfill their need for speed on La Ronde amusement park’s famous rollercoasters Le VampireLe Démon and Le Monstre, the tallest two-track wooden coaster in the world. Those who prefer keeping their feet on firm ground will revel in the chance to fly a B737 in the AeroSim Experience flight simulator, the first of its kind open to the Canadian public. Fans of choppy waters will never forget jet boating the Lachine Rapids with Saute-mouton jet boats, and suggests themed towels as the perfect conference accessory.

 

Take the team exploring

If you want your group to get creative or learn about the history of the city, the Montréal experts at Guidatour have you covered with scavenger hunts that everyone will love. The Creative Scavenger Hunt divides your group into teams to find an original solution to a problem and focuses on collaboration, communication and encouragement between teams. This can be an indoor or outdoor activity and finishes with refreshments and a toast to a job well done. The Historical Scavenger Hunt can be a fun and refreshing pause in a day of meetings or just a chance to get everyone together for some fresh air and discoveries. The rally takes participants through a guided visit of Old Montréal and incorporates a quiz and a few fun (but easy) challenges, followed by refreshments and prizes.

Let the good times roll with Fitz Montréal Bike Tours, offering private tours that are perfect for laid-back team-building activities, office parties, corporate events and more. Let their experienced guides n=know what kind of experience you’re looking for and they will design the perfect activity that’s safe and accessible for the whole team. Explore a neighbourhood, visit landmarks, discover Montréal’s green laneways – whatever you like!

Quirky and eclectic fun

For something different and a little off-the-beaten path, check out Le Saint Motel, a multisensory photography studio featuring 13 themed rooms ranging from an interior garden to a pink pool with Montréal as the backdrop. Grab a key and get creative, there’s no limit to what the imagination can come up with. The Saint-Motel also welcomes collaborations with local artists, creating semi-permanent art installations where guests become part of the art.

If you just want to take the team out for an old-fashioned good time, BoulZeye, Pub & Attractions offer a wide range of options. With 16 bowling lanes, an arcade, escape games and a bistro-pub, BoulZeye has something for everyone.
