Planning a hen do can seem stressful. You have to cater for different people’s wants and needs and you want everyone to have a good time. The thing is, planning the perfect hen party can be the easiest thing in the world. All you need to do is come to Lisbon!

Lisbon is a city that has it all. It’s beautiful, cultural, atmospheric, and it’s just a hop, skip and a jump away from gorgeous beaches and beautiful natural landscapes. Big Blue can help you organise a perfect Lisbon adventure, making sure you stay in quality group accommodation and enjoy activities that suit your group. Here are just a few of the activities we offer!

Tuk Tuk Tours

Tuk Tuk Tours Lisbon & Sintra

If you’re coming to Lisbon for a hen do, it would be a shame not to explore the city, but Lisbon is big and if you only have a couple of days there is a lot of ground to cover. A tuk tuk tour is a brilliant way to see Lisbon in all its glory. Our English-speaking guides will show you the best of the city from its tourist attractions to its best-kept secrets, and we can tailor the tour to suit your hen group.

Sailing Trip

If you want to relax in the sun and still enjoy the sights of Lisbon, then a sailing trip is for you. Our sailing trips start in Belem and follow the Tagus River towards the famous Ponte de 25 Abril bridge and towards the coast. You can soak in the sun, swim, see the city, eat, drink and be merry! It’s also possible to opt for a beautiful sunset sail!

For the more adventurous spirits, coasteering is an amazing activity that will allow you to explore the incredible natural beauty of Portugal. We will take you to the scenic Arrabida Natural Park, just south of Lisbon and here you can climb, abseil, jump, zip-line and swim your way around Portugal’s stunning sea cliffs. It’s an activity that will get your heart pumping and if it’s still not enough for your hen party, you can combine coasteering with sea-kayaking, rock-climbing, or even dolphin watching!

Paddleboarding (SUP)

Stand Up Paddleboarding is a unique and relaxing way to explore the urban beaches that lie close to Lisbon in the small town of Cascais. A skill that is easy to pick up, SUP will have your hens enjoying the water, the weather and the stunning Cascais location from a new perspective. And if you want to relax even more, you could combine your SUP session with some beach yoga — or, for a bigger challenge, SUP yoga!
