It can be difficult to decide what kind of adventures to have during stag weekends. After all, you only get one, so you want it to be something you and your mates will remember for the rest of your lives. Since there are loads of different stag weekend adventures to choose from, we’ve narrowed the list down to some of top choices for grooms-to-be. Try one or more of these activities during your stag weekend and you’ll have stories that will last a lifetime.
4×4 Off Road Driving
An off-road driving experience is a great way to have a bit of an adventure on your stag weekend. You and your best men can take off road vehicles over a variety of terrain, through challenging treks, forest trails, and skills courses. Each off road venue offers something different and new, and you’ll come away from the experience with a sense of accomplishment, having conquered the road.
Hovercrafting is a fantastic choice for a stag weekend adventure due to its novel nature. It’s not something that everyone can say they’ve experienced before, so why not give the boys an afternoon to remember? Once you’ve got the hang of it, take part in competitions against your fellow stag.
The ultimate stag party adventure, paintballing is a classic good time perfect for stag weekends. Split into teams and get ready to face off against each other. Get pumped and spend a day or a half-day shooting at your mates, playing team building games, and just generally having a legendary time.
If the thought of paintballing really gets you going, think about how you’ll feel when you and your mates shoot the real thing with a day of target shooting. You’ll be taught how to shoot a variety of weapons, and you even get to take home your target as a souvenir. Manpower and firepower make for a memorable mix.
White Water Rafting
Head to the rapids for a rafting experience you’ll never forget. Add some adventure and excitement to your stag weekend by navigating your raft through the white waters. You and your group will work as a team to try and master the rapids as you head down the river. You may not succeed, but you’ll have loads of fun trying.
Chances are, unless you have military experience, you’ve probably never had the opportunity to drive a tank. Now, you and the boys can spend anywhere from a few minutes to a full day driving one of these behemoths. It’s an experience that few people can say they’ve had, which makes it tops for stag weekends.
Thrill seekers and rollercoaster enthusiasts, look no further! Zap cats give you and your mates the thrill of zipping along the water at speeds of up to 50 MPH, and can do 3G in a turn. The zap cats have a power-to-weight ratio that’s more than many Ferraris. An experienced driver will take you and the boys out on the water for an adrenalin rush that will get your heart pumping and give you a stag weekend you’ll never forget.
If you’re looking for a bit of relaxation and a chance to unwind with your mates after a wild night out, perhaps a round of golf is in order. Play 18 holes at some of the finest golf courses in the World. Or, if 18 holes is too many, 9 hole courses are available as well for an activity that doesn’t fill your entire day.
Whether you choose to do a few of these activities, or try to pack them all into one grand adventure, stag weekends are all about having a time you’ll never forget with your closest mates.
