Can’t think of what stag activities you want to do?
No party is complete without some Stag activities during the day. Whatever the activity, if it at least delays the first beer of the day, and gives the boys something to brag about at night, then mission accomplished.
You may already know exactly what the stag do activity is. The stag may want to fulfil a life long ambition to go naked frozen waterfall climbing. Or the boys are all petrol heads, so rally car or gokarting are a given. If this is the case, then read no further but consider next where best to enjoy your stag weekend.
However, you may have a stag do on the horizon, and looking for ideas to pitch to the stag group for votes, discussion, and ultimately a green light. The folllowing list has been written for that brainstorming stage of your stag do planning. Starting from A, and finishing with Z , we’ve scoured the planet (well, the interweb anyway) for all possible stag do activities.
Kicking off with an action packed set of Stag Activities are abseiling (not for altophobes), making a splash at the aqua park or amusement park, and getting down and dirty on a military assault course. If using deadly force via things that fly through the air very fast is your bag, then consider air rifle shooting, archery or axe throwing. And if the stag needs bringing down a peg or two, then you could always set up a fake police arrest – this obviously comes with a massive health warning so assess whether the stag could handle it.
There are a bevvy of B-based activities ranging from the highly active (basic combat day, bobsleigh racing, bungee jumping), to the slightly unhinged (beer keg racing, blindfold driving), before descending to the relaxed (boat cruise) and slightly intoxicated (beach bar day, brewery tour). Could all these stag activities be combined in one day? Quite possibly? Would the stag party live to tell the tale? Probably not!
Canoeing, canyoning, catamaran sailing and caving give the boys plenty of reasons to get very wet. If they’d prefer to get active at height with ropes, then coasteering, cliff jumping or climbing might be their stag thang. And try as I might, I can’t seem to group these activities into any theme whatsoever: cyber golf, clay pigeon shooting, camel trekking and chuckle buggies.
Dastardly stag do activities indulge any stag’s love of fish (deep sea fishing), horses (day at the races) dirty petrol (dirt buggies and dune buggy racing) or whisky (distillery tour). And none of those activities are sweaty enough for you, try fighting it out on the dodge-ball court.
In our epic quest for activities beginning with the second vowel in the alphabet, we found lots of extreme this…and extreme that. Some websites were even claiming tiddly winks as an extreme activity. But alas, we have yet to find a genuine activity for this letter so the search continues. Please write in if you can help with our quest.
This didn’t need a lot of research to be honest, with football dominating many a best man’s thoughts when planning the classic stag do. That could be either playing the beautiful game in 11-a-side or 5-a-side format, or getting football tickets for a premiership game, or something a little more exotic abroad. If it’s not a footy crazy bunch of fellas, then other memorable stag activities to sign up for are firearms shooting, fishing and free fall flight simulator.
G mixes up some good ol’ tried and tested stag activities with some the stag group might never of, let alone tried. The most popular stag weekend activity is gokarting of course, with a round of golf and greyhound racing also well trodden and popular things to do. For those in search of an adrenaline rush and some competitive action between the lads, then Gaelic games, gladiator jousting or gorge scrambling might fit the bill.
Groups looking for speedy thrills on land should try Honda pilots. If water thrills and spills are more suitable, then speed across the water with hovercraft racing, or speed in and down it with hydro speeding. The rest of the H’s are pretty diverse, ranging from high ropes course and highland games, all the way to horse racing and then onto human table football.
We’ve knocked out all the indoor activities we’ve found such as indoor climbing, indoor gokarting and indoor paintball, as the outdoor version can be found elsewhere on this list. That only leaves one activity which will leave a big smile on everyone’s face…It’s a Knockout! But there again, shouldn’t that be in the K section?!
Intensive research has thrown up 2 very different activities. The lads could either fulfil their childhood fantasy of being Bob the Builder with some JCB racing action. Or they could fulfil a much more adult fantasy with jelly wrestling, with plenty of laughs when the stag gets involved!
Both Ks are water based, the difference being the mode of propulsion. If the power of wind appeals, then learning to kite surf could be fun. Kayaking is the other activity option, with some upper body strength needed to paddle around.
The Ls are a pretty feisty, war-mongering bunch of activities. Laser combat, laser quest or laser tag is fantastic fun for the modern stag soldier, or take a step back into the middle ages with some long bow and archery target practice, maybe combining this with a low ropes course.
There is a magnificent array of activities to satisfy most stag do’s thirst for motorised speed in weird and wacky vehicles. The weird and wacky includes motorised bath tub racing, monster trucks, micro quads, mini motos and mini tank driving. Max kats and mud buggies are also available for those speed freaks who will only cry “enough” when they get splattered in mud whilst racing.
