Well it’s very clear that we Brits are a nation of action men. Jason Statham, Daniel Craig and Bear Grylls move over, the real heroes are clear to see from our latest stag do research here at DesignaVenture.
They have seen an incredible 20% increase for stag parties wanting daredevil activities that send them scaling heights, leaping off cliffs, navigating wild water and honing their survival techniques. What’s going on? Do some of you know of some global disaster that is going to strike when you might need to know these skills? Well, some do say that the world will end in 2012, so even if it’s just ticking off amazing things to do before you die, you’re certainly giving the SAS a run for their money.
Stag activities in these hard man categories include Canyoning; where you might trapeze across a river, traverse rock walls, dip behind waterfalls and discover dark caves and deep deep water pools. Obviously this is not a city centric pastime, you’ll be in rugged countryside like Wales, Scotland or even Valencia in Spain.
Coasteering will take your stag do down south to the Cornish Riviera, better known as Newquay. Recklessly throwing yourselves off cliffs, scaling rock walls at sea level and generally doing anything that makes you scream inside – and sometimes out!
Cliff jumping – need we say more. If your stag do is lacking a bit of hyperventilation, this will send you wild. Think Canyoning but a bit higher. Will you have the guts to actually jump? With the water below you to break your fall, we guarantee your next words will be ‘AGAIN, AGAIN!!’ or possibly, ‘Anyone got a clean wet suit?’
If you prefer to be in a vessel when you’re doing something wet and wild, then White Water Rafting will still give you that danger factor, but at least there’s something extra to keep you afloat and to hang on to. And the object of this is to stay out of the water, not jump in. Roaring along the UK’s, or alternatively the Baltic states’, most exciting river runs, your stag do will have a very bumpy ride that will make you ignore the log flume at the theme park forever more.
Back on terra firma, a Bushcraft session in South Wales can easily expand your stag night into a whole weekend. If you can’t boil an egg at home, you’ll soon be able to do way more, including man’s greatest ever achievement, making fire. If you see your night getting a bit Blair Witch, at least you’ll have learned some survival skills to get you through.
Yes gentlemen, non of this mamby-pamby lightweight stag partying for you. It’s balls out, heart stopping, air punching activities all the way.
