Moonlight Shotover Challenge
For an amazing day of clues,activities, speed, thinking and plenty of teamwork.
The Moonlight Shotover Challenge is a team building exercise designed to let participants find their way to The Barn at Moonlight Country by solving a series of clues and collecting puzzle pieces. Where (if successful) the pieces of the puzzle are combined to solve the problem.
It all starts with a map, the first clue and a sense of adventure:

The challenge is to get everyone down the river 4km dry and safe while spotting important clues along the way.
