Stag Weekends A Little Less Ordinary


When booking a stag weekend, stag parties don't really want to do the same thing twice, unless it was epic! What do people say again, "variety is the spice of life"?

So you will find best men and their grooms looking for unique stag do ideas to quench that thirst for variety.

Now all of your mates may be new to the stag world and haven't tried out Rage Buggies or Clay Pigeon Shooting and these activities will be unique to them.

But what about the stag weekends that are off the beaten track. The stag dos that you will struggle to find unless you look really hard for them or do it yourself.

A couple of months ago I wrote about a stag group that bought a couple of old bangers and drove them to Benidorm from Sheffield. They even got sponsored by all their friends and families and raised over £2k for a local hospice.

A similar stag do story I covered in 2012 in my stag do news section of DesignaVenture, was about another stag group raising money for charity and driving to the continent, Amsterdam to be precise.

There is nothing that exciting about driving to Amsterdam, after all it's only a couple of hundred miles away, however they customised their cars in a comical fashion, drawing loads of attention.

Their Honda was covered in a massive ginger shag pile carpet covering the whole car, similar to the one in Dumb and Dumber. They covered the next car in newspaper and the last unfortunate auto was a cheesy Wotsit - mobile, what's going on with the ginger / orange theme here!

Moving on to something a bit more strenuous and possibly for the groom that likes to keep fit and doesn't like to drink. Climb a mountain, and not just any old mountain, climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

You don't need to do much climbing, it's more of a trek up to the highest summit in Africa. You will need to be fit but don't worry about having orienteering skills or carrying food, you can find 6 and 7 day trips which include loads of stuff including your very own guides, health checks whilst on the climb, tents, tables and chairs and the whole shebang is fully catered.

Climbing this 5,895m mountain will not only give you a massive sense of achievement but will also give you the ultimate stag do memory to take with you into married life.
