Adventure Hen Do Madeira

Tripadvisor rating

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.

Daniel and Heleen from Big Blue Adventures helped the Passle team to have the most amazing team... building trip in Madeira. Our days were filled with a big array of adventures, including canyoning (OMG what fun!!!), mountain biking, 4x4 discovery tour, wine tasting, tobogganing, poncha making, dolphin watching, sailing, swimming, tasting local amazing food, and more. Both Dan and Heleen and the local guides were fabulous, fun to have around, really good at their job. On top of it, all the silliness was dutifully and expertly documented. Thank you for the most epic times, guys!read more

Dan and Heleen organised a great trip to Madeira for us with loads of amazing things to see and do.... In just three days (in fact a little less) I did the tobogganing down the streets of funchal, winetasting, seeing the views from the mountaintop above the clouds, wine tasting, many excellent restaurants and a home made poncha (the local drink) class. Lastly there was an amazing trip walking down a river canyon where we got to abseil down waterfalls, scramble over rocks and at times jump off the high rocks into deep water pools.

Add to that that Dan and Heleen are both fantastic, happy to help in any way they can and always super friendly. The local tour guides that helped on our jeep tour and some other activities were also fantastic and made the whole experience something truly amazing.

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.”
