Hosted Hen Adventures

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 Cardiff & Brecon Beacons. We are on hand to host the key parts so you can sit back and relax, we’ll do the organising for you and bring some good vibes too!


If you need transport from your group accommodation to our activities then we can arrange that for you, in fact it is usually expected on a group trip like a hen do. We have mini-busses available for groups of all sizes. Our mini-busses are also available for night out returns and various day-trips to surrounding areas. A popular option is a morning activity followed by lunch and some drinks at a local cafe before heading back to the hen accommodation!

Pictures & Highlights Video

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

Meals & Drinks

You can choose between Bed & Breakfast, half board or all-inclusive for your hen party. We can also add extras like a drinks package, packed-lunch and BBQ’s. Just add it to your ‘get quote’ options and we will get that included in your hen package!

When our CEO mentioned he wanted to take the company on a trip to Split (Croatia), it felt like a... huge challenge. How do you even start to plan a trip for 80 people?But finding Big Blue Adventures was a game changer! They made the whole planning process so much smoother than I expected and I had full faith in their ability to pull off an awesome trip. And didn’t they just!The shared experiences our team had on the trip allowed us to build more relationships across departments and solidify those already in the making. Seeing people who hadn’t ever met face to face doing that for the first time was so lovely.I would without a doubt recommend Big Blue Adventures to any company planning their first incentive trip, or those who have done it before and are looking for their next company more

Cannot recommend this experience enough! All of the team helped ensure we had the most amazing day!... But huge shout out to Heleen & Mia who were not only thoughtful and encouraging but tailored the adventure to everyone’s needs. They made sure the thrill seekers could jump safely and for those who fancied the smaller jumps or chilling in the sea / on the rocks they made sure everyone in the group was included and having a good time! If your looking for a day out which includes amazing views, thrills, laughs, and not to mention good food then look no further - make sure you book!read more

Why We Love This…

“Cardiff is awesome for a hen weekend, with endless  bars & restaurants to choose from. It’s easy to get around town so you don’t need to stick with just one cocktail bar, you can try out lots of them in a short time! Canyoning is my favourite activity. I love seeing the big waterfalls, going down natural slides and just being in nature. SUP is great fun too and so close to home. It’s nice to be out on the water and see Cardiff from a different perspective.”
