After their briefing and a short time to strategise, 15 intrepid spies departed in groups from their office in search of clues around Skipton, North Yorkshire. Their mission: to uncover the secret code and prove their spy skills!

Competition levels were high with all teams vying for the coveted number one spot in the office. Who would complete the mission in the allotted time? Who would remember to complete all assigned tasks? Which team would be awarded the most points and be crowned the overall winners?

Various strategies were deployed, some more successful than others!

In the end one team were triumphant, combining expert time management and problem-solving skills with strong teamwork to emerge victorious!


All spies then retired to the pub to compare notes and reflect on the day.

For team building activities and company away days in Yorkshire,  Yorkshire Trails offer both self-run and managed activities based around a variety of locations across the county.


Choose from our Spy Mission, CSI Murder Mystery or Treasure Hunt Challenges or let us design a treasure hunt style activity on a theme of your choice.


Teams will be outdoors exploring a location on foot, putting their planning, time management, problem solving, strategic thinking and team work skills to the test whilst getting out of the office and bonding with their colleagues.


We like to think of our activities as a treasure hunt with a difference - a combination of sneaky clues and fun tasks to both challenge and entertain!

Duration / Location:

Our team building challenges are flexible and can run from 2 - 4 hours to fit in with your plans. We can start and finish at your offices or a suitable venue in your chosen location.


Our activities are designed for exploring urban locations as we set our clues on permanent features such as plaques, buildings, signs and sculptures. We can run an activity in most towns in Yorkshire as well as more scenic locations such as Bolton Abbey and Roundhay Park. For larger groups, we recommend a larger town or city such as York, Ripon,  Harrogate, Scarborough, Whitby, Skipton or Leeds.


On a tight budget?

We also offer lower budget options via group packs of Treasure Trails. Great for 'just for fun' away days without the extra challenge, strategy and skills focus of our team building packages.

Who's it for?

Our team building activities really are for everyone. The activities involve light walking only so people of all ages and levels of fitness can join in.


This, along with the variety of clues and challenges teams will be tasked with, mean that our team building trails are ideal for mixing new recruits with old hands - everyone will have somthing to contribute to the final goal.

Tailored Activities

All of our team building activities are flexible and we design them to fit in with your timings, plans and objectives for the day.

So if you want your teams to collaborate on some tasks, get creative, give a presentation, or visit a specific location or landmark, we're more than happy to include this in your challenge.

We can make the activity as easy or challenging as you like.
