Experience Algarve’s Big Game Fishing
When you think of Portugal’s Algarve, the only dangers you would expect to meet are the sunburned Brits. However, head out to see Albufeira and you will experience marine life like never before. The seas are patrolled by 3 types of sharks – the blue, mako, and hammerhead sharks.
Importantly, you get a chance to reel in some big fish. The seas are home to tuna and swordfish. However, you have to release your catch back into the sea. The exhilaration of the catch, however, is one of the best experiences you will have. And after your fishing expedition, why not enjoy a night out.
A Golfing Expedition In The Emerald Isle?
Fewer experiences in life more pleasurable than strolling out on the first tee of a splendid and gloriously green golf course in the company of your friends. Wherever you go in Ireland, there is such a golf course. Golf is the perfect game for a stag, assuming everyone in the party plays golf.
It is not an extreme activity that it becomes a chore to engage in after a night out with your friends. On the other hand, it offers ample opportunities for good-natured rivalry and competition. That said, you should note that golf as an activity best suits the more genteel groups. So, if you mates just want to spend hours on end taking in pints, do not take them anywhere near the links.
Given how many golf course there are in Ireland, drop a pin on a map and you find a golf course nearby. Importantly, you will always find a course with a friendly atmosphere. However, if you are staying near the major cities, there are plenty of options in Cork and Dublin.
Climb A Wall Of Ice
Just like in Game of Thrones. To some extent anyway. The wall is merely 12 meters high and there are experts present to guide you and ropes for safety. This is a little bit different to climbing a 200-meters wall of ice while the White Walkers and or Night’s Watch are attacking you. Nonetheless, it will give you a taste of it.
And if you are after a more adrenaline filled endeavour, the Ice Factor on the Scottish Highlands also offer the aerial assault to overcome. The 250 meters long course has a wide variety of obstacles like tightrope walks, commando nets, and vine swings, all of which are installed 10 meters above the ground.
Get Castaway In Cornwall
Newquay, the coastal Cornish town is one of the best adventurous stag destinations in the UK in large thanks to the wide variety of activities on offer and its stellar nightlife. The Cornwall Castaway mini-adventure offer by Newquay Activity Centre is a good start. It entails being shipwrecked in the sea and you have to wild swim to dry land. Thereafter, you have to climb the rocky coastline and jump some spectacular plunge pools.
At the end of your journey, at Dead Man’s Cove, you get to learn about survival skills and enjoy some foraged food. When time comes to get back to civilization, you get to paddle a Super SUP back to the shores. If you are up for it, you can arrange for a night out.
