White Water Rafting Among The Best Stag Weekend Ideas

 By: Robert MacLaren
Choosing an activity that suits the whole stag party is no easy job and most organisers find this a frustrating task. Many of the best stag weekend ideas involve a combination of outdoor activities, a meal and a chance to bond over a few drinks afterwards.

There are loads of activities such as go karts, paintball and 4x4 driving to choose from, but without doubt, white water rafting is at the top of the list for activity stag groups in the UK.

A popular format for a successful stag party that is a fun experience for all concerened is to blend two or three different activities over a weekend. Typically, a few drinks the night before, followed next day by the excitement of zooming down the rapids of a fast flowing river, followed later by a warm meal and a wee dram at the bar makes for the complete stag weekend.

A stag party may be all about the Groom, but it also enables people to get to know each other a bit better. After all, when the wedding comes there will be a newly created friendship between two seperate groups of fiends and family.

White water rafting is a great stag weekend activity because it combines group bonding with outdoor adventure. You can also tailor the level of difficulty by selecting fast, medium or slow rivers, depending on how active the party is.

There are numerous challenging rivers in scotland, such as the Tay, Orchy and Tummel. Northern Ireland and Wales also offer exciting white water rafting rivers. If your group are thinking of travelling to Europe, you could look at the rivers in Switzerland, Italy and France which course their paths through mountains pine forests and grass lands.

You can go rafting in some of the most beautiful places on the planet, from the amazing gorge of the Ardeche river in France to the intoxicating scenery of the Olt river in Romania to the crystal waters and rapids of Morocco.

Booking through a legitimate white water rafting tour firm will see to it that your safety is top of the list. This is particularly important with a stag party because some of the group may have done rafting already whilst the others are first timers. It doesn't really matter if there are first timers in the group. Safety equipment such as helmets and life jackets, plus a pro instructor to provide advice will help to calm any nerves. It adds to the exhilaration when the activity is something new and different, helping to take people out of their regular comfort zones.

White water rafting is truly an adrenalin charged activity that can turn a stag weekend into something unforgettable.

Many companies provide complete packages for stag groups, including accommodation, meals, transport and a "raft" of other activities. This takes the pressure off the organiser, as everything is organised for you. Less is likely to go wrong, because an experienced tour operator will know the best hotels and lodges, restaurants and things to see and do. They'll also have contingency plans should the weather cause problems and all the other things that could put a dampener on your stag party.
