Bath has a justified reputation as being one of the UK's most beautiful cities, so it's no surprise that it's one of our most popular hen destinations. It is rich in vibrant culture and has an outstanding variety of options for an unbelievable weekend with the girls. If you are looking for something a bit quirky and unusual - yet totally memorable - then you should definitely take a serious look at punting as an option.
For those uninitiated, the punt is a flat-bottomed boat, ideal for use in canals and small rivers. For this style of punting everyone sits, one person uses a long punt pole to steer the boat from the back, others in the boat use paddles to propel the boat through the water. The punts take 3-5 average sized adults in each. Though it takes a little getting used to, you will soon be comfortable with the technique and free to explore the water!
You will be navigating a section of the River Avon extending from the Bath Boating Station to Bathampton. On the water, you will find an abundance of wildlife, such as mallards, herons, kingfishers, and moorhens - and it has been known to even show off an odd otter or two!
Please Note: We work with 1000s of suppliers across the UK & Europe so prices, availability, photos and specifics on our punting activity may vary depending on your preferred location and dates.
Feel free to ask your Destination Specialist at the time of booking if you have any questions about this.
