Adventurous stag weekends have been popular since the 90’s, any activity which will fill your pants are the event of choice, from Bungee jumping off bridges in Eastern Europe to coasteering in Cornwall with 20 of your mates there is no better experience.

“Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches”, what a fantastic line to describe a stag do in a hot country, from Magaluf in Majorca to Marbella on the Costa Del Sol, there is no shortage of amazing hot lively stag do destinations to party in. Other cities and resorts are available such as Ibiza, Albufeira (The Algarve), Barcelona, Valencia etc. depending on budget and nightlife requirements.

We have all been on these type of stag dos, meet in the pub at 11am and drink for as long as you can. This type of stag do can take place anywhere from a pub crawl in your home town to the old squares of Prague or Riga, they do tend to get messy, and hopefully a good laugh. Most best men decide to include an activity or two in the day to avoid the stag group from peaking too soon which can have consequences for the evening entertainment, not getting into clubs etc. My advice for these type of stag dos is to include loads of food to soak up the beer, I don’t want to sound like a bit of a fanny but it is quite a special occasion for the stag, so keep it memorable.
There are so many driving activities available throughout the UK and worldwide, from racing Rage or Rebel Buggies to driving tanks, supacats or even mini motos, there are literally loads to choose from. We have found that the old favourite, the Quad bike has had a renaissance in recent years with loads of stag groups opting for extreme trekking in destinations such as Bournemouth, North Wales and Nottingham.
Everyone thinks the wilderness is based on sleeping in a tent with nothing but sheep for company (whatever you’re into) but it doesn’t have to be, it can be a country house hotel or a rented barn or big house in the middle of nowhere, but whatever you have in mind it basically means away from nightclubs, bars and lots of other people. Time to unwind and just have a stag weekend with the boys, get the BBQ out, drink copious amounts of beer and chill, when was the last time you did that!
