Most hen night parties consist of some champagne and a very nice bared male chest. For the bride that wants to step outside of the box of conventionality there are many activities to choose from that won’t involve the usual hen night routine. Chillisauce speak to a number of brides organizing their hen dos and are looking for alternative adventurous ways to celebrate. Here are a few great ideas that can save you a hangover:
For the ultimate thrill-seeking bride, coasteering is the perfect activity for a hen do. Coasteering is the act of navigating a coastline by walking, climbing and even jumping into the water below if that is needed. An instructor will assist the group on how to traverse the cliffs but the group will decide on the best strategy to get to their destination. Are you a bride who is up for the challenge? Take a chance and find out!
If you have a need for speed then a day at the rally track is the ultimate adrenaline adventure. You will be instructed by professionals on how to handle a rally-spec car and yes you actually get to drive them too. Does the idea make your hands itch for a wheel and pedal? Then gather up the girls for some fast and furious rally driving.
Some people race and others like to stroll. Llama trekking is a brilliant way for you and your friends to get in some bonding time. Llamas are not only cute but their docile manner is perfect to be the ultimate companion on a llama trek. Let the llama do all the work in carrying your essentials and take a walk along the countryside or to a country pub.
Free Fall Simulator
This idea is suitable for the ladies who dream of jumping out of a parachute, but aren’t quite ready to take that leap just yet, especially before a wedding. For an invigorating hen do idea, try getting into a free fall simulator. Air is blown with high-powered fans to keep you in free fall mode without all the risk of jumping out of a real plane.

White Water Rafting
White water rafting is an exciting adventure that requires getting into a raft, strapping on some safety gear and paddling down water with rapids. For the safer route, you can do white water rafting in man made courses but where’s the fun in that? For some real outdoor delight, take on the forces of nature.
