The Ultimate of Adventurous Hen Do Shenanigans…

Girl Power demands even bigger adrenalin fuelled adventures that will put the boys to shame!

If you, like many are struggling to think of ways for a fun and adventurous Hen Do, then girls it’s time to think of that different something to Do! After all, it is ok to plan your own Hen Do!

When it comes to matrimonial traditions, normally the Bride hands over all Hen Do duties to the Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids and the Hen just turns up, ready to join in with whatever is thrown at her – sometimes literally!

Increasingly though, more and more Brides are taking on the organising of the Hen Do. Sometimes this is out of necessity and sometimes out of a preference to not end up with a Hen Do that’s not to their liking – whether that’s having a large inflatable part of a man’s anatomy strapped to you so you can be ridiculed down at the local pub or downing cocktails in a posh gin bar or maybe a more relaxing day by getting your nails done

Are the stags bragging about their paintball exploits? So what, it hurts, big deal, try giving birth lads!

Calling all water babes, get ready for this!

If you and the girls are looking for the most exhilarating of sports to take on during your big weekend, then white water rafting with cliff jumping is an adventure not to be passed up. Push your adrenaline levels to the limit as you and the girls work together to tackle the never ending rapids.

You will of course though, need to discover your inner girl power if you’re going to conquer the mighty river Findhorn. You also get the added benefit of a better workout than a session at the gym!

You will have one of our experienced guides in your boat, so you won’t be left up a creek without a paddle and you’ll be given full instruction at the start of the session and loads of laughs along the way as you head down the river.

There’s only one way down, down, down!

Now girls, this one is not for the faint hearted! Canyoning is an incredible activity that will challenge the whole Hen Party, push you to your limits and reward everyone with a huge sense of achievement and a real feeling of teamwork at the end of it.

This session involves abseiling down a waterfall rock face, leaping into natural water pools, scrambling over rocks and finding the best way over the rough terrain. If you’ve ever wanted to feel like Lara Croft, this is the perfect chance to do so!

Now don’t worry if that all sounds a bit too Bear Grylls for you! Our very own ACE Bear Grylls guides are on hand to deal with you adventurous Hens that are brave enough to have a go at this awesome activity.

Prepare to get wet and wild girls!

Finally, if you’re looking for a thrilling and unusual way to get down the river Findhorn, then your hen party needs river tubing with cliff jumping! Refreshing and totally hilarious, it’s the perfect hangover cure!

The guides will go through a safety briefing on how to handle your huge inflatable donut, so you can rest assured you’ll be in safe hands. Just hold on tight and enjoy the ride! With plenty of splash’s, your girls at your side (if they haven’t already belly-flopped into the river), this is the ultimate goofy adventure you will have.

Escape the hustle & bustle of city night life and get back to nature with a starry night sky!

Yes girls, glamping is the perfect “after” activity for adventurous outdoor loving hens who want to escape to the country and give the bride-to-be a glamping “Hen Do” to remember after an ACE day on the river Findhorn.

Think camping, but instead of an uncomfortable thin sleeping mat, think comfy thick mat. Instead of a cold, miserable, damp tent, think bell tent with wood burner and space for up to seven Hens in each one.Yip, glamping is definitely better.

Outside, you’ll also have your own private fire pit which doubles up as a BBQ. There’s fireside log seating, too, so you and the girls can sit around and toast a few marshmallows in the evening as you chill out under the stars with a glass of vino in hand. Perfect!

A short stroll from your canvas haven, you’ll find our clean and comfortable toilet/shower block with flushing loos and hot showers. We even have an outside kitchen area with cooking and washing up facilities.

Head home feeling revived, refreshed & ready for that new chapter in your life – wedded bliss!

When the bride-to-be’s celebrating her last weekend as a single gal, there’s simply no time to be a couch potato – you can sleep when you’re wed!
