BarcelonaTours has two creative and unique team building activities: the Barcelona Photo Treasure Hunt (exclusive to BarcelonaTours) and the Olympic Treasure Hunt.

Traditional treasure hunts involve solving clues and following a map. While our treasure hunts (also known as scavenger hunts), still have these classic elements, each team gets a vintage Polaroid camera with 10 photos to snap pics and fill a photo album as a keepsake. Past attendees have told us that it’s one of the best mementos from their team building experience in Barcelona.

Read on for more about both these activities.

What Can You Expect?

It’s all pretty simple. We give the whole group a detailed brief before splitting you into smaller teams.  Each team gets a backpack with useful equipment, including a Polaroid camera, clue booklet, scavenger hunt list, and more. Then, you are unleashed on Barcelona’s incredible Gothic Quarter (or Old Town) in a crazy, madcap treasure hunt.

Using the kit given – and the brains of your team – you compete to solve clues, collect scavenger items, and take pictures. The aim is to gather as many points as you can to win the activity and prove your team is the best! This event works well combined with a dinner or a final destination for your prizegiving.

What Can You Expect?

The Olympic Treasure Hunt invites participants on an explorative journey through the city’s historic sites, each location offering a new adventure linked with the spirit of the city’s 1992 Summer Olympics.

The group will be split into teams – each with the name of an artist – that will rotate through the different zones, with different challenges for each group including Clues, Flag Hunt, and Photos. Armed with maps, clues, a Polaroid camera, and a sense of adventure, teams search the city to discover hidden treasures while facing challenges reminiscent of the Olympic disciplines that once captivated the world.

Who Should Book a Barcelona Treasure Hunt?

Anyone, anywhere, who wants to have fun while doing team building. These activities are perfect for team building, as everyone works together to solve the puzzles. In terms of size, we can accommodate teams as small as 10 and have the capacity for up to 200. Beyond company events, our treasure hunt is also suitable for families, groups of friends, and anyone else.

How Long Do They Last?

You should allow approximately three hours. Afterward, most teams go for food or drinks, where we normally also hold a prize-giving ceremony. Usually, teams extend the night beyond this ceremony to enjoy the excitement, laughter, and good vibe still lingering long after the treasure hunt is over.

How Do You Win?

The winning team is the one that has collected the most points across all three challenges. While it is not a race, there are penalties for returning late!

Once you have completed all the challenges, you will head to the meeting point. Here, a member of the BarcelonaTours team will count the points, work out who the winner is, and present them with an awesome prize.

Additional Extras

Whether it’s adding extra questions that relate to your business, or tailoring the route to best suit your timetable or location, we pride ourselves on our flexibility and ability to adapt to our clients’ needs.

The start and finish points can also be adapted. If your group is staying at one hotel, we can start and finish there, for example. Or maybe you have a restaurant booked after the event, in which case we can organise the prizegiving there.

All these finer details can be discussed with us in the lead-up to the event. We will ensure the entire event runs smoothly – and that everyone knows who the winners are.
