Action, adventure, and a whole lot of adrenaline makes Llangollen one of the premium destinations in the UK for high-octane excitement. It's right in the heart of the welsh countryside, so you've got wide open spaces all around you to make use of, with a colossal variety of energetic outdoor pursuits to try. The Snowdonia National Park is only a stones throw away, and the River Dee runs through the town giving you plenty of opportunity to wriggle in to a wetsuit and take to the water! With all the lush greenery around it's the perfect place for a little relaxing and pampering too, with the beautiful valley backdrop giving you the perfect setting for a little R&R. Whatever Llangollen hen ideas you have, this pretty Welsh town is sure to fulfil them!
Wales might be famed for being a little bit soggy, but Llangollen has taken that to extremes, and given you and the girls the chance to thoroughly immerse yourselves in an array of wet and wild Llangollen hen activities. The river Dee may look pretty and picturesque when you're sitting outside a pub with a glass of wine and all the girls, but it's another matter entirely when you're splashing down the white water rapid course in a frenzy of froth. These are some of the best rapids in Wales, and not for feint-hearted ladies! Alternately, you can give canoeing a go the route is just as challenging, but at least you'll have the paddles to keep you from going off course!
Not all the Llangollen hen ideas have to involve throwing yourself down rapids and waterfalls there are plenty of other ways to make a splash on your Llangollen hen do! Canyoning is one of the most physically exhausting things you can try on your hen do you'll deserve a drink or three after! The girls will get to test themselves in a variety of ways, with swimming in pools, climbing up rocks, and jumping in to pools from other rocks. It's equally fun and challenging, guaranteed to leave the girls with a sense of achievement and a smile on their faces! Mountain boarding is perfect in Llangollen, taking full advantage of the hilly Welsh surroundings, and teaching you and the girls a completely new skill. It's also a brilliant way to see a bit more of the countryside, and from a completely unique perspective whizzing over the breathtaking scenery. If however you'd prefer something a little less… well, weird, paintballing is an old favourite with hens as well as stags, giving you the opportunity to work out all those little wedding frustrations in a fun, energetic way.
Hard as it may be to believe, we've heard that not all hen groups are desperate to work up a sweat and push themselves to their physical limits on a hen do we know, we were surprised too. Luckily, lovely Llangollen caters for those who want a slightly less frenzied weekend, and we've got plenty of Llangollen hen ideas for a gentler weekend. Horse riding is still something that gets the girls up and in to the open air, but you're able to keep things as casual as you want, with a languid trek through the gorgeous pastoral countryside, and leaving most of the hard work up to the horse! If you fancy stepping it up a notch and setting a slightly harder pace, that can be arranged too! If that still sounds a little too much like hard work, why not try a little golf instead? A leisurely amble around a pretty green is a great way to get into the fresh air for a few hours, and the slight competitive element keeps the day interesting. Of course, you may just want to drop all pretence at activity and just lay back in leisure for the entire weekend and our mobile pamper party lets you do just that... you don't even have to make your way to the spa, with the professional beautician and spa treatments coming to you, allowing you and the girls to spend the evening being pampered beyond all belief from the comfort of your hotel room. A bit of music in the background, some tasty treats and a bottle of bubbly, and you've got the perfect way to unwind from all the excitement of the day!
