With the rise of rustic chic, fun adventure and cute décor, glamping has become a super fun and widely popular hen party activity.

For hens who love a bit of an adrenaline pumping experience, High Ropes is full of excitement and challenges. Hens and group members are met with a series of tricky obstacles that they have to make their way through on a treetop ropes-course floating in the air.
Another alternative for the outdoor hens is to take a leisurely trek through a beautiful countryside on a cute and furring trekking companion, a llama. Hens can re-live the colonial splendor of the Victorian era while taking in the gorgeous hillside, and enjoy a rustic picnic spot or country pub too.
If llamas don’t take your fancy, the outdoor hens can opt for something a bit more macho and try out their skills on driving farm machinery. Hens can get to grips with heavy-duty farm vehicles such as JCBs and tractors, and really get themselves into life on the farm.
