Get off the beaten track with these unique hen do ideas

Avoid the typical hen party destinations and find your own fun with these unique hen party ideas. From laid-back Lisbon to enchanted forests and one of Spain’s most interesting festivals, we’ve got a few ideas to get you and your hens dreaming.

Enter the enchanted forest
If you want to feel a million miles away from home, but not actually travel that far, the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire is the perfect place to unwind from wedding plans with your best mates. A massive adventure playground of forest, river and rock, you’ll find every conceivable outdoor activity, including cycling, high rope courses, 4×4 driving, canoeing, caving and climbing.

This picturesque corner of England is also a fantastic location for foodies, producing everything from cider, organic juices, wine and artisan beer to top quality cheeses, Gloucester old spot bacon and smoked Severn salmon. The pubs sell the local fare and there are plenty of tasting opportunities at the bustling markets and food shops. Forest Holidays have stunning log cabins with hot tubs and a wonderful range of in-cabin services, from spa treatments to private chefs.

Jump aboard the surf wagon
Experience the classic nomadic surfer lifestyle for a few chilled out days as you ride the waves of the beautiful Moroccan coastline. Your own driver/surf instructor will take you to the best spots, where you’ll wake up at the waves every morning, and catch amazing sunsets at the end of each amazing day spent in the surf.

The wagon – a lovingly converted 7.5 tonne truck – is a luxury surf lodge on wheels. It has everything you and the girls need: a hot shower; comfy living area; six person sleeping space and hammocks for kicking back with a post-surf drink. Exclusive use of the wagon for a week with Wagon surf adventures includes surf equipment, surf guide, buffet breakfast and lunch.
