Getting around

In terms of getting to Riga, you’ll be able to catch a direct flight from London, Manchester, Nottingham and Scotland. Once you arrive in the city, you’ll find that getting around is easy due to the buses, trams and trolley buses, especially as they all accept the e-ticket (e-talons). The e-tickets can be bought on board with cash or from vending machines around the city and ticket offices. When you’re boarding just remember to scan your e-ticket on the yellow device on every vehicle – every time you board. If your activity is based outside of the city centre, we can organise private transfers – just ask your Event Planner for more details.

Tips and ideas

Riga is an excellent location for those of you who would like to spend their weekend enjoying some of the most popular stag do activities. Equally, the city is a fantastic destination for groups who would like to try something a little different. From a Quad Biking Experience to Bungee Jumping from a Cable Car, Riga is a stag do destination that has it all. If you and the lads are keen on booking a unique activity that stitches up the stag at the same time, then you need to book the Rabid Dog Chase. 

Riga’s signature drink is the unique Black Balsam and it’s certainly a real ‘Marmite’ experience. Black Balsam is a seriously strong herbal nip with a murky ingredient list, but if you’ve never been to Riga, then it’s a must try during your stag weekend away! It’ll most likely either be a case of one taste and you’re hooked, or you’ll never touch it again. This liquor can be found in most bars in the Old Town. Speaking of bars, remember not to go to bars that are recommended to you by strangers (even if they are gorgeous ones). Latvia is home to some pretty dodgy tourist scams that target male visitors especially. These are usually run by local mobsters and are essentially traps to extort money from you.

Of course, if a spirit isn't your cup of tea, you could try the Riga beer bike experience, allowing the whole group to climb aboard and explore the whole town with a guide provided. While many opt for this activity during the day, you can take this all the way up until 9pm, meaning you can fit in plenty of adrenaline fuelled activities before getting a bit merry. The guide speaks English and will have a wealth of knowledge on hand to talk to you all about Riga, but if you'd rather just talk to each other, then that is no issue, as you tuck into copious amounts of alcohol. Oh, but don't worry, there are a number of toilet stops along the way! This was our question when we researched into a bike ride filled with alcohol, but they know exactly where to go so you can jump off regularly and relieve yourselves.

If you find yourself going on a Riga stag do in the wintertime, then you should book the professional winter bobsleighing experience with us! It’s actually one of the few places in the world where you can do it. Just keep in mind that the season runs from November to March. If you fancy exploring and doing a little sightseeing, then you could always visit the famous Art Noveau buildings or the Laima Clock. Or, you could always do what most stag groups do in Riga, head to the firing range to shoot some real high-powered firearms! We’d be more than happy to organise this for you.  


Riga is an extremely affordable city which makes it a popular stag do location. It is often referred to as the city which will never finish being built, and since gaining independence from the Soviet Union and joining the EU, Riga has worked on including some intense nightlife experiences into it’s old town. If you’re heading here for a Riga stag weekend, then we suggest that you book a guided bar crawl with us. This way, you won’t have to worry about the language barrier. If you and the lads want to ensure that the stag has a real treat, we also have Sexy Pool Parties where you and the lads can relax in a plunge pool whilst a stripper dances for you!

If you fancy a strip club but you don't want to miss out on a good dinner before the drinks get really heavy, then why not combine the two activities? You can have a true VIP dinner experience, including plenty of steak (or vegetarian options available) with a 3 course meal, followed by a show. This activity even includes transfers, so you don't have to worry about finding your way there.

Dan’s top tip for organising a killer weekend:

If you can afford it, it's always nice to pay for the stag. When it's split between groups, it usually won't work out too expensive.

Your Party Trick

I’m famous for a dance move which I believe the correct gymnastical term for is ‘The Pike’ but many refer to it as ‘The Dixon Bum Drop’. It works really well with any song that has the word ‘down’ in it, my personal favourite being Pitbull and Kesha’s ‘Timber’. You basically jump up and then go down into a sitting position and bounce back up. It looks painful, but at the same time particularly great in fancy dress!

Favourite Stag Do drinking game

My favourite is a drinking game that my mates and I made up. It basically involves a pyramid of cards and gets more severe the longer it lasts. I’ve had mates not even make it out after pre drinks! Failing that, ring of fire is always decent.

Stag fancy dress costume

I’m known for my cow outfit. I’ve taken it everywhere around the world with me! It’s basically a good shout for a few reasons. Girls love playing with the udders, so it’s a great ice breaker in a bar, and it allows for some pretty decent photo opportunities. Plus, a dancing cow is a pretty good crack.

Why Riga?

I’ve visited many popular Stag cities during my time in the industry, and I have to say Riga is without a doubt one of my favourites. For a start, it’s cheap, meaning you get way more for your money than you might elsewhere.

It’s worth mentioning it’s good for stag parties to book as many meals as possible in advance as it’s often hard to get a table at peak times, and it also saves the hassle of splitting the bill. Plus, when you’re abroad in an unfamiliar city, it saves you researching the best places to grab a bite to eat, because our ground agents do all the hard work.

The best Riga activities

I recommend every group visits the Olympic Bobsleigh track. It’s home to the Latvian Olympic team, so it’s a really unique experience. You get to try it out for yourself and you can book it with return transfers from your accommodation so it’s a really hassle free activity.

Gun firing in Riga is also an incredible experience. The four gun mega shooting package is a great option. It takes place at the police’s shooting range, and you get to shoot a glock, AK-47, Margolin and a pump action. 

In the evening, a steak and strip always goes down well with the lads. I recommend the VIP dinner with an erotic show. You head to a gentleman’s club where you get a three course meal including a prime fillet, all whilst dancers perform.
