Stag Do Destination Guide: North Wales
North Wales is the BEST UK destination for adventurous stag do activities.
Before we delve deep into what North Wales has to offer, let's check out some pointless, uninteresting (but secretly interesting) facts about this incredibly popular stag do destination:
- Average Temperature: June 18ºC | July 19ºC | August 19ºC
- Rainfall: 827mm per year
- Population: 687,937 (Wales has 3.1 million)
- Hilly: North Wales is mountainous with much of it's land well above 150 metres (above sea level). It's a great place to move to when the sea levels rise!
- Falls: Swallow Falls at Betws-y-coed is the most visited waterfalls in Britain.
- You just cannot say it: There are many hard Welsh words which are simply unpronounceable. This 58 letter town-name which is the longest in Europe, takes first prize: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - good luck asking for a taxi, if this is where you're staying.
- A Stag Do Favourite : There are 3 sheep to everyone person in Wales and that doesn't include the blow up ones you''ll be bringing with you.
STAG DO ADVENTURE
Snowdonia National Park is a great place to start, from the epic Zip Wire Velocity to the Forest Coaster or the man made surfing lake, all within easy driving distance of each other and all totally brilliant experiences.
Then you have the town of Llangollen, the best place to do some natural white water rafting. The frothing wild river doesn't have to rely on rain water (even though there's usually plenty of it) it has a regular dam release keeping the rapids fast and furious.
Pick a raft, a stand up paddle board or even a river bug, and expect one hell of a ride.
Just a stone's throw away from Llangollen you have one of the best Canyoning sites in the UK. Canyoning is the only way to throw yourself off some rocks into deep pools safely. With trained instructors you're in good hands.
Both stag activities (canyoning and white water rafting) are a great way to get rid of that hangover and can be done in one day!
Here's what you can expect....
MOTORISED MAYHEMNorth Wales is also no stranger to fantastic motorised activities and has one of the best quad bike trekking experiences we offer. Climb the mountain on your quad bike and you'll get to see 7 counties. By the way, that climb won't be easy. You'll need balls of steel to get up there, putting all your trust in the bike.
On the same site there's also an incredible Rage Buggy racing track. Built on hard core, even in winter months you'll still be able to go.
These off road mud buggies are fast and there's some parts of the track where you can really get them up to full pelt, that's if you've got the metal.
USUAL SUSPECTSYou also have all your usual stag do ideas which include Bubble Football, Footgolf, Paintball, Outdoor and Indoor Karts. There's also an excellent Clay Pigeon Shooting site, with a very experienced, friendly and enthusiastic instructor who loves stag parties!
If you are looking for a stag do with nightlife in Wales then you can't go wrong with Cardiff.
WHERE TO STAY...The great thing about choosing North Wales as a stag party destination is that you've plenty of variety when it comes to places to stay.
From hotels in busy towns such as Llangollen, to staying in our popular Rural Country Inns where the accommodation, food and beer is cheap as chips.
There are also houses to rent, log cabins with hot tubs and if you really want to get close to nature, you can always camp.
You can even have your activities in North Wales and stay in Chester, Manchester or Liverpool if your stag weekend needs nightlife, as it's not too far to travel (1 - 2 hours).
So to me if your groom to be wants adventure, full on activities and the chance to get away from it all, North Wales is the perfect stag do destination.
Whatever you get up to, have a good one.
