Wine, food, pampering, great company and laughter sum up the perfect hens weekend and the ultimate destination to celebrate life before marriage has to be North Canterbury.

Challenge the Hen

All hens need to be tested to see if they’ll cope with the challenges and hurdles encountered in married life. There’s no better way to test skill, time management, multi-tasking, agility and endurance than Adrenalin Forest. The multi-level aerial obstacle course will challenge even the most prepared hen and her gaggle of girlfriends.

Water the Hen

After working up a sweat at Adrenalin Forest it’ll be time for a well-deserved drink. The wineries of Waipara offer several cellar door tasting options to whet the palette. After sampling the regional specialities of Pinot Noir and Riesling, it’ll be time to dine on the award winning cuisine at Pegasus Bay. Hens should prepare themselves for a long alfresco lunch in the sheltered garden surroundings. With the food and wine flowing be sure to have sorted a sober driver.

Pamper the Hen

The thermal waters of Hanmer Springs have been recognised for over a century as a place to wash away the worries and unwind. The tranquil surroundings and thermal waters will provide the hen with hours of relaxation. Complete the day with an indulgent treatment at the Day Spa to ensure the hen is fully stress-free before the big day.
