A few ideas of team building activities for your corporate tours to France…

Car rally in the vintage 2CV

Number of participants: from 20 to 80

Where: Burgundy, Beaujolais, Champagne, Provence

Goal: team spirit; social interaction.

The 2CV, a genuine symbol of the French way of life, is perfect for backcountry roads. Rustic and just plain fun, its old fashioned charm is a hit with every generation. Far removed from our era of high technology, the “2CV” provides an alternative that inspires friendship, “joie de vivre”, and a change of scenery.

Each team will be given instructions and a road directory to direct them through the countryside on the quiet lanes. Along the journey the teams will have to answer questions, find objects, which will be excuses for encounters and numerous discoveries: family stories, a sundial hidden in an amazing castle, an unfinished bell tower… the challenge is to follow the clues and not get lost amongst the picturesque pathways and charming villages!
