10 stag weekends activities you should try in your lifetime

As well as being great reasons to drink till you can’t remember your own name, stag weekends are perfect opportunities for doing those crazy activities that make no sense but are a huge amount of fun. See how many you can tick off of our top ten stag weekend activities you should try at least once.

Paintballing


The all time stag weekend classic activity. This is the daddy of activities mixing a healthy dose of stealth, adrenaline, skill and a whole lot of pain. This sorts the men from the boys and the macho from the total psychotic. You’ll find out which of your friends have anger issues when you give them guns that fire pellets at 165mph.

Quad biking


Just like these all terrain machines, Quad biking on a stag weekend is a sturdy dependable favourite. You’ll marvel at the capability of these vehicles as they match speed with strength and agility. Seek out crazy trenches and ditches – and then drive straight through them

Golf


This is the perfect stag weekend activity for those who want to mix in a bit of relaxation with the wild partying. Soak up the peaceful mindset of the fairway as you head for the 18th hole.  By then you should have had enough time to mentally prepare yourself for the evening’s madness ahead.

Sea-fishing


Ah-haaaar me hearties. Take to the open seas and then…fish. This is perfect stag weekend in calm weather. Take your stag group out in a charter boat and your captain will take you to popular fishing spots so you can relax, have a few drinks and shoot the breeze.

Clay pigeon shooting


This popular sport is a hit with stag groups all over the country. A man isn’t a man till he’s held a shotgun and smashed the shit out of a clay target. If you’ve never been clay pigeon shooting before you might be surprised just how addictive, not to mention competitive this activity can be!

Five-a-side football


With its fast pace and smaller teams this is a fun stag activity which develops your team work and creates bonds between the guys before you celebrate or commiserate over the score later that evening.

Go Karting


Definitely not just for kids, this is a fiercely competitive activity that brings out the best and worst in drivers in your stag group. Expect cursing galore as you twist and turn and race to reach the finish line.

Off-roading


You’ll be amazed at the inclines you can cover in these 4 x 4 vehicles. Through muddy trenches and ditches don’t be surprised if you don’t have water way up past the door line. Learn how to handle these machines and test your driving skill!

Surfing


Think surfing is just for long haired hippies form the land of Oz? Think again, Britain has some great beaches for surfing, especially down in Newquay. For something really different to do with your mates, take a lesson and then take to the waves.

High Ropes


If you ever used to watch Tarzan with pure envy then this activity is for you. Get trussed up in harnesses and take to the tree tops in this crazy activity that sees you traversing through the trees at unreal heights over rope bridges, wooden platforms and zip wires!
