As we said, Lyon is seriously amazing. It's beautiful, rich in history and has some amazing hen weekend activities, as well as some beyond-amazing cuisine.
With that said, it's relatively new to the hen party line-up, so Maximise has a few tips and suggestions to make the hen weekend in Lyon absolutely amazing from start to finish!
First things first, your accommodation. Lyon is a beautiful and compact city and there is no better place to stay during your hen weekend than at our Apart Hotel. With its central location, you'll be close to everything you need and you'll be able to make the most of their free time.
Once you've settled into your accommodation, it's then time to enjoy cruising down the Saône River onboard a VIP Private Yacht. There is no better way to admire this incredible city than from the water. Exclusive to your group, you'll enjoy a 90-minute cruise on the Saône River along with 4 bottles of rosé...cheers!
Then it is time to tuck into a delicious French meal. You are in France, one of the food capitals of the world, so steer well clear of anything fried, fatty or foreign, keep it French and delicious at the Dinner Lounge.
After dinner, see all the best 'sights' with the Hummer Limo Lap Tour. Like pretty much all the cities in France, Lyon is one hell of a city, bursting with beautiful architecture and monuments. But, when it comes to this Hummer Limo Lap Tour, the best sights will definitely be inside the limo in the form of a sexy stripper!
Finish the night at the club with our exclusive Club Entry & Bottles, which will see you enjoy a reserved table for your group and plenty of booze to help fuel the celebrations.
Start day two of the Lyon Hen Weekend with some R&R and TLC with a Spa Day that comes with a 20-minute massage for the bride-to-be. Planning a wedding is a stressful job, so we're sure she'll thank you for this relaxing addition to the hen weekend.
Once any signs of a hangover have been steamed, soaked and massaged away, it's time to get right back into some day drinking. But, in a sophisticated way with a French Wine Tasting session. If you love wine, this is one activity you can't pass up on the hen weekend in Lyon.
The French are fairly well-known for producing some top-level wine. They have whole regions dedicated to it. So much so the rest of the world can't even say 'Champagne', no it's bubbles, bubbly or sparkling wine everywhere else. But, in France and in Lyon during your hen weekend, its' the real deal, the good stuff, no knock-offs or imitations, which is all the more reason to enjoy a Wine Tasting session!
Not only is Lyon the food capital of France, but the city is also rich in history, incredible architecture, fine wine and boasts a Renaissance centre to rival any in Italy.
Along with all of this, Lyon also has some top hen weekend activities on offer including a Saône River Cruise, City Treasure Hunt, Pole Dance Class, Quad Bike Tour, Outdoor or Studio Photoshoot and a Murder Mystery evening.
When it comes to the evening hen parties, the Party Bus, Private Striptease, Karaoke Night and Hummer or Lincoln Limo City Tour are the best on offer.
As we've said already, a hen weekend in Lyon is a weekend with endless possibilities.
And the nightlife is one of those endless possibilities.
From the Old Town to Terreaux Square and Brotteaux as well as partying along the river banks or on a boat, there really is something for all tastes, styles and ages when it comes to the nightlife in Lyon.
Old Lyon, along the banks of the Saone, Croix-Rousse and Presqu'île are the liveliest areas and where you'll find the highest concentration of bar, clubs, cocktail lounges and more.
When it comes to top clubs, which Maximise can organise your entry for, Le Boston, La Maison Mère and L’Opéra Rock are all worthy of your attention.
For rooftop partying, your struggle to find any better than Terminal or Le Sucre
Other top Hen Weekend destination is France includes NIce and of course Paris. If t's abroad you are after but France is not ticking enough boxes you can head to Italy with either Rome or Milan.
And, if they are not quite right there is all of Spain and Portugal to think about especially Barcelona, Lisbon, Valencia, Algarve, Benidorm, Madrid, Marbella and Costa Brava!
