Hosted Hen Adventures

With any of our Big Blue adventures we always aim for a personal customer service (Travel & Hospitality Award winners for ‘excellence in customer service’) and have a friendly face there to welcome you to your hen weekend in Wales. We are on hand to host the key parts so you can sit back and relax, we’ll do the organising for you and bring some good vibes too!


If you need transport from your group accommodation to our activities then we can arrange that for you, in fact it is usually expected on a group trip like a hen do. We have mini-busses available for groups of all sizes. Our mini-busses are also available for night out returns and various day-trips to surrounding areas. A popular option is a morning activity followed by lunch and some drinks at a local cafe before heading back to the hen accommodation!

Pictures & Highlights Video

On a hosted adventure we take our GoPro cameras and shoot some nice pictures & videos. We’ll send these to you afterwards and make a personal highlights video for your hen group, the best way to remember your trip!

Meals & Drinks

You can choose between Bed & Breakfast, half board or all-inclusive for your hen party. We can also add extras like a drinks-reception package, packed-lunch and BBQ’s. Just add it to your ‘get quote’ options and we will get that included in your hen package!

Vorig jaar juli waren wij met onze volwassen zoon en zijn vriendin in Cardiff. Van daaruit een ... geweldige trip gemaakt naar de Brecon Beacons voor een canyoning avontuur. Goed georganiseerd door Heleen en Dan met de rit er naar toe, goede kleding een prima instructeur en in een prachtige omgeving. Na afloop met de hele groep naar een gezellige pub. Kortom een fantastische more

Why We Love This…

“Cardiff is awesome for a hen weekend, with endless  bars & restaurants to choose from. It’s easy to get around town so you don’t need to stick with just one cocktail bar, you can try out lots of them in a short time! Canyoning is my favourite activity. I love seeing the big waterfalls, going down natural slides and just being in nature. SUP is great fun too and so close to home. It’s nice to be out on the water and see Cardiff from a different perspective.”
