Group holidays can be an enormous amount of fun. But with so many different personalities in one group, it’s sometimes hard to find something that everyone will enjoy. So if you’re planning a group holiday next year, here are some ideas to help you plan the ultimate girls trip!
This is a great option for active women on a low budget. To get the most out of a multi-day hike all you really need is walking boots and camping gear (which you can borrow or rent if you don’t own any). A multi-day hike is a great way to enjoy some fresh air and take in some natural beauty whilst reconnecting with your friends.
Hiking and camping for a few days is great way to get (or stay) in shape but it also allows for a bit of indulgence at night whilst you enjoy some cold beers or wine around the campfire. And by cutting yourself off from the rest of the world, you can really spend some quality time with your girlfriends and chat about absolutely everything.
The beauty of surfing is that all you really need is a board and a beach. So if you’re a group of friends who like to surf, it’s the cheapest holiday idea ever.
Of course, if you’d prefer something a bit more structured, you can always head to an organised surf camp. Whether you’re a group of beginners, intermediate surfers or a mix between the two, there are women’s surf camps in Australia and beyond that will suit you. Many destination surf camps will also come with luxury accommodation and even spa packages. So, if you fancy a bit of adventure, action and luxury rolled into one, this might be the one for you!
Why mess with a classic? If budget and time allows, why not plan an all-out trip to Vegas to blow off some steam?
The great thing about Vegas, however, is that you don’t necessarily HAVE to do the crazy Vegas party thing. Yes, that type of holiday is definitely available, but if you’d prefer to spend most of your time next to a ridiculously luxurious pool sipping on your favourite cocktails and catching a different breath-taking show every night, that’s all readily available too.
There are also a number of cool activities that you can enjoy in the area around Vegas. If you have time, you can go hiking or rafting in the Grand Canyon or even enjoy a luxury helicopter ride over the top. Basically, whatever you need from your holiday, Vegas can provide!
Whether you stay in Australia or hop on over to Japan or New Zealand, skiing can be an awesome holiday for a group. Perhaps one of the best things about skiing is that you get the best of both worlds. You have the highly active and adrenaline-fuelled days followed by cozy or boozy nights (depending on how exhausted you are) at your hotel or cabin.
If you’re a complete beginner however, just make sure there’s someone else in the group on the same level as you. It can get a little lonely if you’re the only one falling over all the time and everyone else is off speeding down the mountain.
Girl trips don’t have to be cosmopolitan-fuelled wild nights at countless bars or an endless string of facials, manicures and massages. With a bit out-of-the-box thinking, you can enjoy adventure, physical challenges and some quality time with your friends as well as a bit of boozing and pampering on the side! So what are you waiting for? Get planning!
