Forget the Spa – 5 Killer Days out with the Girls

When you think of a day out with the girls it’s normal to think of relaxing activities such as a spa day or an afternoon tea but isn’t that too predictable? Are you getting set in your ways?

Wouldn’t it be great to answer the question, ‘What are you doing this weekend?’ with ‘I’m white water rafting’! How impressive and how exhilarating, you’ll finally have something exciting to talk about at your next dinner party! Read on for our top tips on how to take your life to another level.

    1. Trampoline in a cave

    Now I know this sounds a bit odd but we all know what fun we used to have trampolining as a child so imagine having this experience in a cave? This is a great excuse to travel to stunning North Wales where a disused slate mine has been transformed into a giant playground called Bounce Below with three huge trampolines.

    To add to the fun, you reach the trampolines by train and each is linked by an 18.28m slide. So you’re having fun, excitement and doing something totally different with your best mates and think of the energy you’ll expend with all that activity, not to mention the freedom you will feel as memories of childhood come flooding back. This has got to be better than the usual get together over a glass of Pinot?

      2. Sky diving

      Are you afraid of heights? Then face your fears and get ready for a great day out and one you will never forget! Think about it, you will be joining the ranks of extreme sports enthusiasts – that’s something to brag about! One of the most accessible adrenaline sports, tandem skydiving is a safe way of stepping outside your comfort zone and a great way to view your local area from a different perspective!

      You can jump close to home or make a weekend trip out of it and travel somewhere beautiful to experience this amazing sport. A bonding experience, to share with your best friends as well as another thing to tick off your bucket list! If you get the bug then you could even take it a step further and qualify to do solo jumps.

      shooting days

        3. Shooting Party

        Once seen as a sport just for men, as the popularity rises, the number of women’s shooting clubs are on the increase. There are also a number of Ladies Days offered at top shooting clubs where beginners can learn to handle a gun and take their place in the shooting line!

        You will be surprised at how much fun a day’s clay pigeon shooting will be and ‘ladies only’ also means you can learn in a relaxed environment minus testosterone-fuelled male pressure! A great way to spend the day with your friends, to learn from experienced tutors followed by a delicious meal and a drink in the clubhouse.

        water rafting

          4. White water rafting

          If you like water but rowing on the pond in your local park doesn’t excite you then how about you and your girlfriends raise your blood pressure by trying white water rafting? Instructors will ensure you are kept safe at the same time as having lots of thrills and fun. So if you have a great sense of adventure you will be running the rapids in no time at all.

          Full kits are provided so you don’t need to worry about safety equipment and wetsuits, all you need to do is turn up with your friends ready to enjoy a fast paced exhilarating ride.

          rock climbing

            5. Go climbing!

            Now don’t think I’m advising you and your besties to pack your lunch, put on a warm jacket and start heading towards the snow-capped summit of K2! There are plenty of indoor opportunities to get your first taste of climbing. However, if you’d prefer to experience the great outdoors there are many schools that offer day or weekend courses that will give you the exhilarating experience and a real feel for what climbing is all about.

            Obviously you will need a certain level of physical fitness for a weekend like this, however no experience is necessary and all courses will be pitched at the level of ability and aspirations of the group. A healthy, fun and exhilarating experience with amazing views is guaranteed.

            These are just a few of the amazing experiences available for you and your friends to try. Life is for living and experiencing different things. OK, there is a time and place for chilling and enjoying a quiet lunch or spa day but perhaps it’s time to put your plans for sitting on your sofa with a bag of popcorn and your favourite boxset to one side? The question is, have you and your friends got the courage to dip your toes into the world of the adrenaline junkie?
