It can be hard to pick where to head for your wild stag weekend. Do you opt for a staycation or do you look a little further afield and make a holiday out of it. Well around 50% of our customers look abroad, with Prague and Budapest often the leading stag do destinations.
There are several considerations you should cover in order to find the perfect destination for your group, highlighted below:
Prague was the most popular stag do destination over the past 12 months and has held this title for the past 3 years running. The Czech Republic has the added benefit of being seen as one of the safest destinations in the world, while there is also a wealth of castles to explore during the day before the drinking begins.
Germany has long been a popular European stag do destination, with plenty of groups heading around Oktoberfest. Berlin is easily the most popular city, providing the perfect combination of powerful history to embrace, along with the wild nightlife where the clubs never seem to close! However, one of our hidden gems is Dusseldorf, being the first stag do company in the UK to offer this destination. From hot rod tours to the Michael Schumacher go kart centre, Dusseldorf certainly offers some unique activities.
The second most popular stag do destination in the world is Budapest, as people flock to this landlocked country thanks to its amazing nightlife, cheap drinks and scrumptious Goulash. From boat parties along the river to fake arrest pranks on the stag and indoor go-karting venues, Hungary is certainly a great option to consider.
54% of Latvia is covered in forests. The country has 12,000 rivers, as well as 3,000 lakes. There are also sandy beaches with nice warm temperatures in the summer months. You therefore can find something amazing for someone wanting something a bit more outdoorsy or someone who would prefer a beach holiday. Riga is also ideal for all those wild Eastern European stag do activities, including VIP erotic shows with your dinner, stag kidnap pranks, beer bikes, a domination show or a medieval banquet.
We could talk about all the incredible destinations throughout the Netherlands which offers beautiful countryside and great beers, however we know the focus is very much on Amsterdam, where the rules are certainly more relaxed than back home! A trip to Amsterdam wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Heineken brewery, while you can also arrange for a police stripper to pick up the groom from the airport!
Warsaw might be the capital, but Krakow is the party capital of Poland. You can try white water rafting during the day or head out on a party boat or river cruise, following it up with a wild night in the clubs or at a lapdance venue. Why not even get yourself a hummer limo to pick your group up from your venue and take you to town in style.
Portugal has emerged as an interesting European stag do destination due to its contrast to the other destinations on this list, with many opting for Portugal due to its golf courses, calm environment and warm weather. You can enjoy a fiesta on your Lisbon stag do or try some surfing if heading during the summer, with Portugal globally known for having some of the biggest waves in the world.
The Irish wit is second to none, while it is hard to compare the nightlife in Dublin to many other locations in the world, with a trip to the Guinness Storehouse a must. The pub crawls will certainly make your evening special, but there are also plenty of interesting day time activities, such as Gaelic football or bubble football.
Edinburgh has some of the most exciting and hilarious stag do activities we offer, such as the mini highland games experience, which will allow you to try tossing the caber and hurl wellies! Of course, Scotland also offers all the favourites, such as paintballing, mud buggies, bubble football and clay pigeon shooting, as well as plenty of strip clubs for the latter part of the night.
If the groom is a history buff then they might be interested to know that Slovakia has more castles and chateaux per capita than anywhere else in the world. Of course, if they’re not history buffs and just want a wild weekend, then Slovakia also ticks the boxes! Bratislava will provide you with beers at crazily cheap prices, plus mud wrestling strippers and a steak and strip show, making this one of the fastest growing stag do destinations.
Spain, the Brit’s favourite destination abroad for a bit of sun. Approximately 18 million Brits head to Spain each year, it is by far our countries most popular holiday destination, so it seems unsurprising that it has also become hugely popular for stag groups, including Benidorm, Barcelona, Ibiza, Madrid, Magaluf, Marbella and Tenerife.
Cardiff has long been spoken about as arguably having the best nightlife in the entirety of the UK (Newcastle might want to argue with this) while there are also some great activities on offer. With just over 3 million people living in Wales, this makes the population just 4.8% of the entire UK population, highlighting how sparce much of the area is, however Cardiff is certainly a busy city with plenty going on.
When you book a domestic stag do, people will often head for 1-2 days and may not even stay the night, catching the last train home after a heavy drinking session.
On the other hand, with a stag do abroad, people will see it as a holiday instead, staying often for 3 nights and all either in a hostel or a hotel together. This can create a much greater bond and can lead many groups to doing future holidays together.
Considering some people may see this as their only holiday of the year (not everyone will have a huge budget for holidays), you do have to take this into consideration when planning the trip away. Some people may want to see the tourist attractions, while others may want to see a bit of sun or get onto the beach.
The focus should be on what the groom wants to do, but just be wary that some others may want to do the typical things you want to do on a holiday, especially if they've never visited this destination before.
