Stag Party Ideas

Having a great stag do is a milestone in most men’s path to married life. These days the possibilities for epic stag do activities are endless, so it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the choice. If you and your closest mates are looking to break up your evenings of debauchery with some adrenaline-filled experiences, here at Cardiff International White Water (CIWW) we have some great stag weekend ideas for you.

One of the great things about choosing to bet on CIWW as your main source of stag to entertainment is that you can leave planning your stag weekend activities in our hands instead of shouldering all the responsibility.

Kick off your bespoke stag do package with some White Water Rafting early on Friday evening. This will help break the ice between the different groups of stag friends and get everyone pumped up on adrenaline to prepare for the first of a couple of long nights.

On Saturday you can nurse your hangover on your way to a day of Gorge Walking which will test your courage with jumps from big heights into plunge pools. Take this opportunity to make fun of the stag and build up your collection of amusing stories for the wedding toasts!

Another benefit of having a stag do near the beach is that it allows you to get outside for the daily stag do activities and still have plenty of time to rest and prepare for another night of drinking and dancing until the early hours. We can even take care of the transport if you would prefer, so you can fully kick back.

Conclude a weekend full of adrenaline packed stag do activities with a Sunday spent Canoeing & Kayaking, or even taking part in one of our activities away from the beach, such as the Indoor WaveAir Trail and Climbing.

What about stag do fancy dress you ask? Well, the great news most fancy dress outfits fit over the wetsuits provided, so you don’t have to give up on this classic opportunity to further embarrass the stag! Here at CIWW we’ve encountered it all – from genius to truly awful – and we love seeing our stag do dressing up (although maybe leave more risqué options for your night out, as we do get some young visitors in the centre).

From adrenaline-fuelled stag do activities such as white water rafting to more relaxed options like paddle boarding sessions on flat water, choosing a bespoke stag package with CIWW is a fantastic pick as stag weekend ideas go. What’s more, our centre is only a short distance away from both Cardiff Bay and Cardiff city centre, meaning you’d be a stone’s throw away from both the lively clubbing scene and the splendid waterfront vistas the city has to offer.
