It seemed for a while that the thought of seeing snow this winter would be very unlikely considering we’ve had the warmest Autumn on record since 1864. There’s been little in the way of complaints from most people, who’ve been enjoying the fact that there’s been no need for hats and gloves, and no snow in site. However, snow has now graced the strangely green mountain slopes of Switzerland and Austria which are now covered in 30cm of the white stuff, making holiday ski goers and winter sport enthusiasts very happy people.
We’re sure that it’s only a matter of time before snow makes it’s way to other parts of Europe, so if this is something you look at as a good thing then there are plenty of destinations to choose from for a winter hen or stag weekend abroad;
This is one of the most exciting destinations to visit in winter as there are plenty of winter sports including snowmobiling and bobsledding; perfect for a stag do. The capital city of Latvia, a stag do in Riga satisfies all areas with cheap beer, beautiful architecture, modern restaurants and a nigthtlife that rivals any other more well known capital cities.
It may be far to go however, this is one of the most beautiful destinations you’ll ever visit so it’s 100% worth the distance. From snowcapped mountains to natural hot springs, cosy local bars and contemporary and sophisticated nightclubs, a hen weekend in Reykjavik is unique and unforgettable.
The capital city of Hungary, this city never looks better than when covered in snow. A great one for both stags and hens, a Budapest hen party guaranteed to be relaxing being home to some of the best natural hot springs in Europe and a stag do in Budapest is guaranteed to be original with the opportunity to try out bobsledding. Yes, if you’ve ever seen Cool Runnings, it is as fun as it looks in the film!
