The ladies that lunch, and cliff jump
Edinburgh is quickly becoming the hen capital of the UK, and the popularity for the Scottish Capital is only growing. If you happen to be walking past Edinburghs’ Waverley Station on a Friday afternoon, the exodus of staggering spice girls, disney princesses and Charlie’s angels from trains, is quite the scene to see.
Edinburgh is a hen friendly city with something for everyone. The night life is diverse with cocktail bars bosting views of the Edinburgh skyline to karaoke and clubs that are only a short stumble from the chippy. However from our experience, the reason that more and more groups are choosing Edinburgh for their hen weekends away is the contrast of day activities, that just aren’t possible from other cities, and the first class restaurants and bars that only a major city can provide.
While we only deliver 25% of adventurous activities to hen parties, as we provide to their antler clad equivalents. The hen parties that choose to complement their weekend away to Edinburgh with an adventurous activities certainly stand out from the crowd. It would not be unfair to say that hen parties joining Intrepidus Outdoors for an adventure are fierce, braver than the boys with the big jumps, AND are punctual when it comes to meeting the mini bus outside their hotel in a morning. While there must be less awesome hen parties out there, this is our list of Hen Outdoor Activities Edinburgh. That, from our experience of delivering outdoor activities for the last five years, you want to hear about.
Coasteering is adventuring at the seaside and the favourite for hen parties looking for an adventure outside Edinburgh. Coasteering is exploring places that most people will only photograph from the coastal path. You will get up close and personal with some of the most beautiful, rugged and exciting sections of coastline that the UK has to offer. With cliff jumps, exploring sea caves and body surfing, coasteering truly is taking your adventure to new heights!

Canyoning is an adrenaline-filled and action-packed adventure that takes place in some of the most exquisite and beautiful locations that you can imagine. Hen groups will descend the exposed rock and crystal clear waterfalls of steep mountain gorges. Jumping from ledges into the glistening pools below, abseiling through vertical features that have taken thousands of years to form, and sliding down shoots where the pitch and rolls couldn’t be more perfect. Canyoning is an experience that will take you up close and personal with a thrilling raw nature that most people will only photograph from an observation point or look down into from the tourist trails above.

Canoeing is much more mellow that the previous two outdoor activities, less for those groups looking for an adventure and more for hens looked for a view and a cracking pick-nick spot. Scotland has a number of good river trips only a short drive from Edinburgh and suitable for a range of groups and abilities looking for leisurely paddle.
If you are looking for something a little bit less thrill seeking, and a little more like exploring leisurely… Canoeing is the outdoor activity for you!
