You might even cheekilysurprise your stag with a stripper or head to a local lap dancing club where you can indulge yourselves until the early hours.

With guided bar crawls available, you and your group can descend on only the most exclusive and VIP spots on your stag do.

Number 4 – Stag Do Weekend in Amsterdam

Amsterdam has a love affair with everything from its picture postcard perfect views to its national beers and even the local football club, Ajax. An Amsterdam stag do isn’t all about the girls and the ganj’ but, if that’s what you’re looking for, there is plenty around. When you arrive in Amsterdam you can enjoy a whole range of structured activities to give your stags a taste for the city. Tour a local brewery and find out more about the best Dutch brews or visit the Amsterdam Arena and see where Amsterdam’s beloved Ajax play their home games. If you’re a golf fan then take the guys for a round or two on the local course but if you really are in it for the party and the drinks then a beer bike is the best place to start, offering tons of laughs and a chance to neck as many pints as you can manage at the same time. The crazy Dutch are full of original ideas too, offering Blow Karting on the beach or a Tuk Tuk Tour of the city. 

When the sun goes down in Amsterdam those tell-tale red lights come to life. The Red Light District is designed to fulfil your every last desire and you can even book onto the tour to see some of the real highlights of the area, with plenty of opportunities to take a peek inside and visit a lap dancing club or two. The nightlife in Amsterdam isn’t all about the girls though and you can enjoy some fantastic clubs, casinoscruises and much more, with the Rembrandtplein a popular location for stags looking for the lively centre of the club scene.

A stag weekend in Amsterdam can be whatever you make of it; you’ve just got to decide which way to go!

Number 5 – Budapest Stag Do

Budapest gets its name from its two halves, Pest, the party central, flat and densely populated with an urban playground packed full of clubs, bars and more. All your classic stag do fun can be found here, from beer biking to bubble football. Buda is known for being hilly and whilst you probably won’t be heading over there for a night on the town you’ll probably pass through if you plan to get outdoors and put some energy into your stag. You can enjoy anything that takes your fancy on a Budapest stag do, from paint-balling to quad biking and 4×4 off road driving to a session at a gun range. These stag ideas are packed with plenty of opportunity to get a competition going between you and the guys, guaranteeing hours of banter and laughs. Running between Buda and Pest is the River Danube, a beast of a river perfect for a stripper cruise or a wake-boarding session.

The weather is lovely from Spring onwards. From March, daily temperature rises up to between 20-25 °C (68-77°F).  No wonder it makes the Top 10 Stag Do Destinations list.

Evenings on your Budapest stag do are best spent in Pest where there are a huge range of clubs and bars to explore. If you want to kick things off in style, then consider a raucous medieval banquet with mead a-flowing and plenty of food to line your stomach. Afterwards you can move onto something a little sexier with a trip to the oil wrestling ring, a session in a local lap dance club or even hire your own stripper especially for your party. Alternatively, simply get down to the beats of the Paris of the East with a guided bar crawl around the city. A stag do in Budapest isn’t an authentic one if you and you gang don’t end up in one of the city’s top nightclubs where you can party until the sun comes up.
