Top Stag Destinations First Up – North Wales

When you think about stag parties you think raucous behavior and a lot of Oi Oi!

Well, not necessarily, tarring stag groups with the same brush is a shameful act done by the British press.

Right, let’s take a look at stag dos which are not centred around the bar, obviously there will be beer on the stag do as a stag do without beer is like seeing Dec without Ant, it just hard to comprehend.

North Wales is a great starting point, with bags of stag activities to do in the day, you’ll need a week not a weekend!

Activities currently topping the popular stag activity chart include White Water Rafting, Canyoning, Dirt Buggy Racing, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Hovercrafts and not forgetting the always popular quad biking.

You also have other outdoor activities which include Mountain Biking, Abseiling & Climbing, Canoeing, Raft Building to name just a few.

You then have the accommodation, from clean group hotels, which are usually above a pub in a rural village to 2 – 3 star hotels in Welsh border towns such as Llangollen where there is a bit more life.

At night you have the options of Oswestry, Llangollen, Welshpool and even Chester. I know these destinations aren’t at the top of most popular stag do lists however that’s the beauty of it, no long queues into clubs, no jostling at the bar, just a decent night out around a load of pubs, with your best mates in tow.

Stag Events

To me stag events are when the stag party gets together to do a load of daytime activities with nightlife optional.

I say ‘nightlife optional’ as the stag daytime activities seem to be more or as important as the night life.

Popular stag packages which have this approach can be found in Nottingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, North Wales, Cardiff in fact in the majority of our popular stag do locations.

An example of a popular stag event is the Rage Buggies, Bikes & Boogie weekend in Nottingham, this package includes fantastic daytime activities including quads, laser clays and Rage Buggies.

Other stag do packages which take on this theme include Bournemouth Rocks which is obviously in Bournemouth or the White Water & Wheels weekend in North Wales.

All these packages have amazing daytime activities, giving you an unforgetable stag event.

Stag Do to North Wales Is The Great Get Away

After last week when some of the large cities in England saw rare scenes of riots and looting, does it make a lot of sense to book your stag do to North Wales and get way from the big cities?

Well, if you are looking for full on stag do activities such as White Water Rafting, Gorge Walking, Rage Buggies, Quad Biking and Paintball, North Wales has the lot and more.

What your stag weekend in North Wales lacks in nightlife it makes up in a laid back atmosphere, fantastic daytime activities, stunning scenery and friendly locals.

If you want a bar and pub crawl there are plenty of market towns with enough pubs to cater for your needs and remember Chester is only 45 minutes away if you yearn for a big nightclub.

If I was to marry again, North Wales would be my stag do destination of choice, followed closely by Las Vegas, Thailand and then onto Sydney, Australia*.

*Providing money was no object and my future wife didn’t mind me taking a month to six weeks off for my stag do.
