Stag Weekend in Wales: A Two-sided Story

Best man articles — By on May 24, 2018 10:00 am

The Welsh refer to Wales as God’s country and they should know, they live there. Wales is more than just rolling hills, diverse mountainous ranges, national parks and outstanding natural beauty, that’s just what makes it such a fantastic stag weekend destination.  A stag weekend in Wales might be just what you need.


What also makes Wales brilliant for stag dos, is on a night out in the Capital Cardiff or Swansea, you will never meet a friendlier bunch of people, it doesn’t matter where you’re from, you’ll still hear “alright butt, how’s it goin?”.


But what exactly has Wales have to offer to my stag group and what’s this two-sided story all about?


To get the low-down I have spoken to Marco at DesignaVenture who have been selling stag weekends in South and North Wales since the dawn of time (well, 2003) and they have magically informed us of what an incredible stag destination Wales actually is, so let’s dig in and find out a little more information…


Stag Weekend in North Wales


Marco advised me; “North Wales will simply take your breath away, there aren’t too many densely populated urban areas in North Wales, making it the perfect destination for stags wanting to get away from the city, take in some views and get some fresh air and whilst you’re there you might add well take part in some absolutely belting activities. From White Water Rafting, Canyoning and River Bugging to going down the fastest Zip Wire in the world, or the longest zip zone in Europe.”


“Motorised activities are also as monstrous with unbelievable quad biking treks to Hovercraft racing and screaming around dirt tracks racing Rage Buggies”, he added.


I think that The Snowdonia National Park is a location of outstanding beauty so if you’re looking for a more of a bonding-boys-together-trek, then walking up Snowdonia is the perfect tonic, it’s even got a railway track going up and café at the top of the mountain – so if any of the guys don’t fancy the walk they can meet you up there!

Stag Weekend in Wales: Cardiff


I have never been out in Cardiff however I was advised by Marco “you’ve never partied until you have witnessed and been involved in a Saturday night out in Cardiff, it’s not like London, people actually talk to you and are interested in your story, creating a friendly and unique vibe.”


“If you’re looking for some activities to keep the boys out the bars and away from the friendly Welsh girls during the day, there are some incredible activities available; from Quad Biking at the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, Canyoning in the Brecon Beacons to Indoor Karting and White Water Rafting in the centre of Cardiff, there’s an Olympic graded man-made white water rafting course in Cardiff Bay don’t you know.”


I was also given some great advice, “the city centre hotels get booked up really quickly so booking your Cardiff stag do early is a must!”

Stag Weekend in Wales:  Swansea


Move along the M4 corridor to Swansea, where you’ll have another fantastic night out, a little smaller than Cardiff however still as friendly and cheaper than most other stag destinations around the UK. You’ll be shocked at taxis fares it’s like inflation has never happened in Swansea.


Marco also advised me that “Swansea is a great place to explore the coast with the Mumbles being just a stone’s throw away, you also have the seaside towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot close by.”


“Obviously, you have the activities of quad biking, canyoning, paintball etc. you can also go Coasteering which is a great activity to do in the summer, where you follow the coast, explore sea caves and jump into deep pools from very high ledges, tomb-stoning the safe way,” he added.


So, there you have it, your two-sided story with the lively nights in South Wales of Cardiff or Swansea and the rural weekends with loads of brilliant activities in North Wales, you’ll be surprised at just how many stag parties are now looking for rural breaks.
