Spend your days in Riga touring the local area by beer bike, enjoying pint after pint as you pedal the streets or pop into a traditional Latvian brewery for a tour of how they do things out east. If you’re planning to get more active, then you can enjoy everything from rough and ready quad biking to canoeing or shooting at the gun range. Riga stands out because of its snowy climes so jump aboard a snowmobile with the lads for something different to remember your stag by and of course we can’t forget the ladies who ensure that this is a break you’ll never forget, especially if you take in an oil wrestling session and watch the girls go.
Riga’s Old Town is party central when the evenings arrive and you can continue to keep the night decidedly steamy with a trip to a lap dance bar or hire a stripper to visit you at your chosen venue. Unique to Eastern Europe you can also book the stag in for a Kidnapping experience, not for the faint hearted and you can’t guarantee he’ll still be talking to you all afterwards. The Riga club scene is the stuff of legend for a reason and a guided bar crawl will ensure you hit every exclusive spot and never miss the chance to enjoy the finest that the city has to offer.
