3 Naturally High Stag Do Ideas

On a stag do you're going to get lots of highs and lows, from the lows; of the last morning when you feeling more sick than a hypochondriac standing in the middle of Paddington train station at rush-hour, to the highs; of downing 5 flaming Sambucas.

But what about searching out for that natural high, the high that won't give you a comedown or hangover.

According to this GQ article, swimming in wetsuits in cold water will give you a buzz which will last the complete day, I also think coupled with an adrenaline fuelled activity you're onto a winner.

15 Ideas For A Stag Do

Strap yourself in, we're going to get through 15 ideas for a stag do quicker than Usain Bolt at a free chicken nuggets convention.

To view any of these activities with full descriptions destinations, and prices go to our stag do ideas page.
1. Dirt / Rage Buggies Totally awesome, extremely fast and as agile as a panther these dirt buggies are fantastic to race and in my mind is one of the best stag activities you can do. They are rigid, have excellent handling and can accelerate so fast it will push you back into the bucket seat so you must have your wits about you.

Recommended for the petrol heads.

2. Quad Biking Staying with the motorised theme (don't worry it's not all motorised), quad bikes are more versatile than a potato waffle (one for the 80s child), extreme climbs, steep downhills, rivers, brooks, mud whatever the terrain, your quad bike will eat it up.

All activity sites will offer either Trekking or Racing.

3. White Water Rafting A brilliant hangover cure, one th…
