Adventure Hen Do Madeira

Tripadvisor rating

Join us in subtropical Madeira for a unique hen party destination within Europe!

Portugal has become a popular hen do destination over recent years, and stunning Madeira island is the country’s up and coming adventure hen location. If you’re after a hen do with a difference, then Madeira will tick all of the boxes! An island with year round warm temperatures, just 4 hours by plane from London or Amsterdam, and known for its world-class outdoor activities. Begin your day with a private surf lesson in Porto da Cruz or explore the island’s subtropical nature on a guided Jeep tour, followed by an authentic Poncha making class (Madeira’s local alcoholic drink). Enjoy an evening out in the capital city Funchal, which is nicely nestled in between the mountains and the coast. Funchal has a great selection of restaurants and is easy to get around, discover the city’s street art and Portuguese architecture on foot.

We had such a great day for my future daughter in law's hen weekend. We were a mixed group of 14... ladies ranging in age from 20-74 and Nuno looked after us all so well. From the minute he picked us up and giving us all custard tarts to when he dropped us all back he was the perfect guide. We had a wonderful day even if I ended up more in the sea than on my paddle board!! I would deinitely recommend this wonderful day more

Just got back from my hen do in Portugal and Nuno was an incredible tour guide for us for the... Saturday. Not only did he make the stand up paddleboarding and paddle board yoga really enjoyable, he was just an absolute delight. He greeted us with pastel de natas in the morning and was very attentive to everyone in the group - keeping everyone smiling the whole day. He was even helpful recommending places to visit over WhatsApp before we even got to Portugal! 100% recommend. thanks for making my hen extra special 😊 obrigada!read more

Why We Love This…

“I love how undiscovered Madeira still is for adventures and fun outdoor activities for groups.. if you want to get away from overcrowded hen do destinations in Europe and want to go somewhere unique, then Madeira is a top destination for an awesome hen weekend! My favourite activities are exploring the island’s incredible subtropical nature on a guided hike, or a private surf lesson in Porto da Cruz followed by an amazing sunset with some tasty Poncha.”
