There are a lot of activities to enjoy at Käringön, all year round. The ruff nature with the ocean surrounding the island both opens your creativity and gives your body and soul serenity. Here are some activity suggestions: For the active group: HUWT - Helicopter Under Water Training. This is a unique teambuilding activity that is held at Nordtac training centre on the island. In the activity you will learn how to get out of a vehicle under water, together with Heart- and lung rescuing exercises and or a fire exercise where the group learns how to put out fire in a smoke-filled room. The smoke in this case being simulated and safe. Catamaran sailing - why not start the conference by sailing catamaran from the mainland out to the island or take a break between work. The catamaran will pick you cup just outside the conference room. Jetski event, pub island safari, ribboat orientation, lobster fishing. For the less active group: Sauna A boat tour through the archipelago Historical guided walkabout on the island Boule Crayfish party (larger groups) Seal safari Fishing And much more For the larger groups we’d be happy to recommend musicians to highlight the evening.
