Gothenburg, with its phenomenal art, music and fashion scene, is one of the coolest destinations for a hen do around. It might not have taken off as a hen hotspot just yet, but with such a fantastic array of culture and entertainment saturating the city, you and the girls are going to want to get there fast and be first on the ground for the incredible Gothenburg hen activities that the city offers. It's not all architecture and art; the city is thriving and fresh and so are our Gothenburg hen ideas, with a seductive mix of the class and tranquillity that Sweden is famed for, and the energy and vigour that's uniquely Gothenburg.
A hen weekend doesn't have to be an excuse to sit back and relax and in a city as high-voltage as Gothenburg, there's no reason not to hurtle forwards and enjoy an energetic weekend that'll keep the girls giggling and in high spirits the whole weekend through. Go karting is always one of the most popular hen activities, and in Gothenburg it's no different; giving you and the girls the chance to sit in some of the most powerful karts Scandinavia has to offer, put your feet down, and roar around a specially built track and mind-bending speeds. Alternately, work out those pre-wedding frustrations, take to the battlefield, and engage in some all-out, girl-on-girl warfare on a terrain littered with obstacles and the bodies of your fallen comrades with paintballing. Both challenging and hugely fun, every course and site is different, so even if you've given this one a try at home it'll be a completely new experience. If, however, you want a Gothenburg hen idea that's a little more unusual, try our inflatable games experience big, bouncing and very, very silly, hens with a sense of humour will love this hilarious challenge.
Switzerland is the land that, (believe it or not), invented the Swedish massage, one of the most common and best-known types of massage in the world. Chances are if you've ever had a massage and they didn't specifically call it ‘Thai' or ‘Indian head' or ‘erotic', you had a Swedish massage (just called a massage in Sweden, by the way). That, in our opinion, makes Gothenburg one of the best places in the world to take your girl friends for the most relaxing hen party they've ever been on. A Swedish massage session on its own will be enough to work out all the pre-wedding tension, reliving joint pain, stiffness, stress, and hangovers too. If you think the girls are going to require a little more to take their stresses away, a full pampering day might be in order. You'll get a day at the spa and access to all the facilities therein including the treatments they offer.
Gothenburg hen activities don't have to be energetic or restful GoHen has options that allow you to combine the two, getting you up and out in the brisk Gothenburg air, but still leaving you able to go home thoroughly refreshed and invigorated. Golfing is a brilliant excuse to head out on a leisurely walk over Gothenburg's greens and fairways, stretching your legs but also enjoying a little laid-back competition with the girls. It's a fantastic reason to bring out the novelty argyle socks and sweater vests too. Gothenburg was the first city in Sweden to have a golf course, way back in 1902, so you really are in the best place in the Scandinavian countries to practice your albatrosses and eagles. If even that seems a little strenuous for your tastes, give deep sea fishing a try! It might not seem like the quintessential hen do activity, but Gothenburg has a long fishing and harbour history, with tributes to it's maritime past all over the city just see the colossal Poseidon statue for evidence. If you're thinking of heading off to sea and spending a few hours escaping real life with your girl friends, sitting back, relaxing, and possibly casting a few lines or two if you want, then deep sea fishing in Gothenburg might be the choice for you.
When you're planning a big night out in a city as exciting as Gothenburg, the day times can often get overlooked in favour of deciding which pubs, bars and clubs you want to hit later on. It's a huge mistake to let the Gothenburg hen activities just fall by the wayside though although the city provides plenty to see and do in terms of shopping and culture, a few pre-planned, pre-organised activities for you and all the girls to do as a group is vital to keep everyone having fun and bonding on the weekend and of course, spending time with the bride! Unless you happen to be a fluent Swedish speaker, though, there's a good chance booking yourselves in for anything let alone tracking down the best options for hens in the first place might be a bit tricky. Luckily, with GoHen, all you have to do is leave us a message letting us know exactly what it is you want to do. We'll work out the options, the costs, the timings, and the Swedish, leaving you to concentrate on more exciting matters like what the night will bring!
