Adventure Hen Do Madeira

Join us in subtropical Madeira for a unique hen party destination within Europe!

Portugal has become a popular hen do destination over recent years, and stunning Madeira island is the country’s up and coming adventure hen location. If you’re after a hen do with a difference, then Madeira will tick all of the boxes! An island with year round warm temperatures, just 4 hours by plane from London or Amsterdam, and known for its world-class outdoor activities. Begin your day with a private surf lesson in Porto da Cruz or explore the island’s subtropical nature on a guided Jeep tour, followed by an authentic Poncha making class (Madeira’s local alcoholic drink). Enjoy an evening out in the capital city Funchal, which is nicely nestled in between the mountains and the coast. Funchal has a great selection of restaurants and is easy to get around, discover the city’s street art and Portuguese architecture on foot.

Hosted HenVentures

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 Madeira. We can host your whole adventure so you can sit back and relax, we’ll do the organising for you and bring some good vibes!


Need transport from your accommodation to our activities or from the airport to your group accommodation? No worries, we have mini-busses available for groups of all sizes. Our mini-busses are also available for day-trips to surrounding areas or if your hen party fancies an evening out in Funchal.

A popular option is a morning activity followed by lunch and some drinks at a local Portuguese restaurant before heading back to the group accommodation!

On a hosted adventure we take our GoPro cameras with us and shoot some cool pictures & videos. We’ll send these to you afterwards and even edit a personal highlights video of your hen adventure, the best way to remember your trip!

Booked a Lisbon Tuk Tuk tour with Big Blue for about 20 people as a work event at the end of... January. Really great experience from start to finish - from Heleen's responsiveness and flexibility as our numbers changed (including finding an extra tuk tuk 3 hours before our tour was due to start!) to Nuno guiding us expertly around the city and then back to the wine bar for some beautiful fado music. Really enjoyable afternoon from start to finish. Thank you!read more

I had the great pleasure of organizing this year's team event with Big Blue Adventures in Madeira.... From day 1, the first contact, everything went smoothly and the communication was always great. Individual wishes were taken into account and even spontaneous changes were accommodated without any complications. The week in Madeira was unique for our company and nobody could have imagined such a unique time beforehand. Our workshops ran flawlessly and every day was an adventure.The team from Big Blue Adventures is just as unique and they were a pleasure to work with. I would recommend working with BBA to any company. Thanks a lot and hope to see you again soon 🙂read more

Why We Love This…

“I love how undiscovered Madeira still is for adventures and fun outdoor activities for groups.. if you want to get away from overcrowded hen do destinations in Europe and want to go somewhere unique, then Madeira is a top destination for an awesome hen weekend! My favourite activities are exploring the island’s incredible subtropical nature on a guided hike, or a private surf lesson in Porto da Cruz followed by an amazing sunset with some tasty Poncha.”
