Alternative Stag Do Ideas UK & Europe

Car Smash, curling, Paella making & zip wire

We've all been on boys or stag weekends which included so much booze you could fill a swimming pool with, so maybe you fancy something different?

Here are our alternative stag do ideas that your group will love:

1. Bobsleigh - Riga, Latvia

In my mind there is only one place to take your stag party on a weekend and get involved in some Olympic standard Bobsleigh and that's Riga.

In the winter you will hurtle down an Olympic standard Bobsleigh course at break neck speed - not for the faint hearted.


2. ZIP Wire Velocity - North Wales, UK

The fastest zip wire in the world and the longest in Europe and it all takes place in North Wales, Snowdonia to be exact.

Another stag do activity which includes incredible speed, bags of adrenaline and will give the stag an incredible memory to take into his married life, and that's what it's all about!

3. Cornish Games, Newquay

You've watched Baywatch right? The movie not the series, well this is nothing like that! These are incredibly funny games made up for stag parties to have loads of fun and get competitive. Go to our website and see the games included for Cornish Games.

4. Car Smash, Amsterdam - Netherlands

Oh c-mon, legally smashing up a car on a stag do, where do I sign up?

This is all true and we have sold many at DesignaVenture towers, a great stag do activity if the group need to let off some steam in Amsterdam, mind you there are other ways in Amsterdam!

5. Dragon Boat Racing - Milton Keynes, UK

If you're going to compete on the water, then there is nothing like Dragon boat racing.

This activity is ideal for large stag groups as you can really ramp up the competition, just make sure you even out the teams, it would be a shame for one of the boats to sink because there are too many heavy athletes if you get my drift...

6. Deep Sea Fishing - Bournemouth, UK

The perfect gift for the fish loving stag and a complete alternative stag activity.

Chilled out beers onboard, all the tackle and bait the fish can eat, just land some big ones and they will be the stories of the weekend, not the one that got away.

7. Motorsport Madness - Birmingham, UK

A truly epic stag do activity for the motor loving stag party.

Activities include Castor Car Challenge, Double Decker Showdown, Del Boy Challenge, Nag Drag, Dirt Buggies and Push me pull me.

8. Paella Making Course - Valencia, Spain

A brilliant activity for the stag party really looking to do something completely different.

You will learn how to make a chicken and rabbit Paella by a Spanish Masterchef who knows his onions, thankfully. Also included is wine tasting, 3 course meal (where you'll eat your Paella) plus some mementos.

9. Trabant Driving Experience - Berlin, Germany

Get driving a 2 stroke, old Commie car around the amazing streets of Berlin. Your fleet of these old Trabant cars will really get the crowds looking, they'll think it is some sort of Top Gear Challenge.

10. Spa Experience, Bristol, UK

Before you spit your beer out and start chanting Lads, Lads, Lads. What's wrong with going on a spa day? You've done it with your Mrs, so now's your chance to relax with your best mates you grew up with, I am pretty sure you'll have a much better time!

We have all these activities and many more stag do ideas on the DesignaVenture website.

11. Curling, Prague, Czech Republic

I know curling is a Scottish sport so why do you need to travel all the way to Prague to do it? Well first of all it's Prague. Enough said? Secondly, it's absolutely hilarious whilst you get the hang of the grippy shoes. And thirdly, it's Prague, Oh I've already said that, well it is Prague.

12. Formula F1 Weekend, Barcelona, Spain

Experience the incredible atmosphere and do something completely different by doing a 3 day general admission ticket to the Spanish Grand Prix. Our Formula 1 Barcelona Grand Prix Package includes the lot and works out cheaper than going to the British Grand Prix, even when you add on flights!

13. Canoeing Weekend, Herefordshire, UK

Really step out of society for a weekend and canoe down the river wye for your stag weekend, camping for 2 nights and drifting down river without a care in the world. Possibly this will be the most relaxing stag weekend you'll ever go on.

14. Ascot Horse Racing Weekend, Reading UK

Going to the horses on a stag do isn't exactly alternative as it's been done, but it hasn't been done properly. Here at DesignaVenture we organise 2 nights in a 4 star hotel, transfers and entry tickets, so all you have to do is turn up and have a good time. Surely that's what it's all about?

15. Fire Eating Masterclass, London

Kings of Leon wrote 'Sex On Fire' whilst doing a fire eating masterclass on a DesignaVenture stag do in London. OK, that's not exactly true (well none of it's true) but your tongue will be on fire unless you listen to the instructor. When I went we did a fire eating routine to Sex on Fire and it was epic, the lads had a great time! One of my mates told me it cured his bad breath, not sure if that's exactly true!

Whatever you get up to, have a good one!

Good Luck
