Designed to engage, inspire and excite, Backpackers is a fun and original team building activity


Backpackers is a fun and exciting group building activity, designed to test decision-making skills and collaboration against the clock.

Each team takes on the role of an international backpacker; planning routes, managing their money, choosing work options and deciding which challenges are to be undertaken and when.  Graphics on the big screen support and enhance a personalised briefing and allow progress and scores to be updated live throughout the game.

Our Group Building Activity – Backpackers

  • Encourages staff bonding
  • Fun and educational content
  • Great for ice-breaking
  • Lively and active entertainment

What’s Involved?

Backpackers depart from London and travel to the destinations on our world map.  Each team is given a pack containing an introduction to the game and how it works, a travel timetable, passport, SOS vouchers and US Dollars.  The game lasts for 80 minutes, with each minute representing a day in the life of a modern backpacker.  Teams nominate roles for their members including a team leader and a runner who, wearing their backpack, communicates their team’s decisions to an adjudicator.  Effective teamwork is vital in this game to maximise point scoring and achieve a winning team performance.
