You knew it might be coming, you just didn’t know when. So your best mate has kindly asked you to be his Best Man for the wedding and now expects you to arrange an all-guns-blazing stag do that will give him the time of his life on his last night of freedom and he isn’t going to be happy with 10 pints at his local.
As you are going to be celebrating your best friend’s last weekend of freedom, you should consider something a bit more memorable than what you do every Friday night. If you are looking for something different, these are a few stag do ideas to help you out.
The Barcelona Bangers
Are you out of ideas for a Barcelona stag do? While you could hit the beach all weekend, that would actually be a waste of an amazing city. Barcelona is packed full of amazing things to do, so get everyone out of bed, stay away from the bars for a bit and find out why the city is often mistaken as Spain’s first city.
If the groom is a major football fan, your Barcelona stag do will not be complete without a trip to Camp Nou. The stadium is in the city centre, so there is no reason to miss a stadium tour. The tour allows you to see the changing rooms, the player’s tunnel, the press room, the museum, the commentator’s box and the dugouts.
Barcelona’s beach bar scene is probably the best in Spain and should not be missed. To make the most of it, you should head to Barceloneta beach in the afternoon and start the beach bar crawl. You can spend time in lounges that overlook the ocean and getting a drink is all part of a stag do.
Chartering a yacht in Barcelona is something that most people think is outside of their price range. There are actually a number of yacht charters that are a decent price and would be amazing for a stag do. The average cruise on the yacht will be around 2 hours and many will even throw in a few bottles of cava so that you can toast the man of the hour.
Beach and Booze in Valencia
For sunshine, beaches, nightlife, bars and all round joie-de-vivre, a Valencia stag do punches well above its weight. The favourable climate puts it maybe at No. 1 among the big Spanish cities for winter sun weekends. You’ll find that Valencia has everything you’d expect from major Spanish cities like Barcelona or Madrid, but with a more laid-back atmosphere, and lower prices.
Go Canyoning In Malaga
If the groom is an extreme sports maniac, you should look at canyoning in Malaga for his stag do. Canyoning is similar to coasteering, but you will be making your way through a section of canyon with nothing but the safety gear provided and your body. Of course, you need to have a reasonable degree of fitness for this and it is best if you know how to swim. You should also not have any problem with heights or the possibility of jumping off ledges into deep pools.
Beer Biking In Madrid
When you look at this idea, it does not matter if you have not been on a bicycle in years. This is not a Tour de France and the driver is going to be taking care of the steering. The beer bike also has power-assisted pedals so you can take the load off. When beer biking in Madrid, you will be able to have as much ice cold beer as you like while taking in the most famous sites in the city.
When setting up this stag party, each member of your group will get 2 litres of beer to drink during the 1-hour long tour. You do not have to worry about getting bored because there is also a Spotify sound system which allows you to create your own party playlist for the tour. Another benefit of this stag idea is that you can honestly tell people that you got a bit of culture in while you were in the city.
Buggy Adventures In Benalmadena
If you are up for a stag do that involves a bit more exploring than sitting around, you should head to Benalmadena. A buggy adventure here will take you away from all of the tourist places and into the hills. This is different to a Jeep tour because you are going to be in the driving seat. You can think of it as off-road karting in buggies that are made to tackle the hills, shallow rivers and rocky outcrops.
