We want you to be on your best form to enjoy your Cardiff stag activities, so here are some top tips to ensure you get the most out of your stag weekend with us at Quest Adventures.
The typical stereotype of stag party groups being boisterous and unruly need not be true in every case. You can enjoy your stag weekend to the fullest without upsetting the locals, or being overenthusiastic and overdoing it while taking part in any of your stag activities. Have fun, but do not let it go overboard.
Preparation is the key to having a thoroughly enjoyable stag weekend. Once you have booked your activities, take some time to prepare yourself. If you have planned to take part in gorge walking or coasteering for example, make sure your fitness levels are up to par so that you can take part fully without worrying about keeping up with your stag mates. Take a few weeks before you go to get down to your local gym and have a tailored programme made up for you to improve your overall strength and stamina.
Kick off the weekend in the best possible way by making sure you turn up at the meeting point in good time. Everyone will be ready and raring to go for their weekend away, and no one will want their fun ruined by any late-comers.
Watch what you drink the night before your departure. Your Cardiff stag activities can be pretty full-on right from the word GO - so it would be in your best interests not to start your physically active weekend with a cracking hangover!
Start your weekend off with a good breakfast or a filling brunch. This can also be a great way to catch up and bond with your stag mates before you jump into your activities. There are some great places that serve good breakfasts in Cardiff, so why not check out The Plan, on Morgan Arcade, who serve some top-rated breakfasts at great value for money, and is one of the top 50 independent Cafe's in the country according to the Guardian newspaper. Cafe Brava, situated on Pontcanna Street, is another great place for breakfast or brunch, and as they have a wide and varied menu you can find something delicious for any vegetarians or vegans among your group. This little gem is also a great hang-out for celebrity spotting, so you never know who you will be sharing your morning coffee with.
Remember that while you are enjoying yourself deep in the Cardiff countryside or sitting in a local bistro, you still have to have respect for others. You may well encounter locals, tourists and holidaymakers on your travels during the weekend, so if you know you will be sharing your weekend with a bunch of boisterous lads, try to choose a more lively location or more challenging activities for your weekend.
Keep a contact list on hand for each member of your stag group. This can be a simple list of contact numbers for each other, plus the name, address and phone number of the hotel where you are staying. If you decide to include a visit to a few pubs in between your weekend activities, this list will come in very handy if any member of your stag party becomes lost or separated from your group while out in an unfamiliar area.
Keep an eye on the general alcohol intake and make sure your stag mates are not having too much of a skin-full between activities. If you think there is a high possibility of this happening, then schedule some other activities for the group to do during your down-time. Organise a game of laser-tag, go-kart, quad-biking, or a paintball session to keep everyone busy and distracted from too much drinking. Check out Team Sport Go Karting Cardiff on Curran Road where you will find a superb 400-metre indoor track with a flyover.
Precision planning will give you a stag weekend in Cardiff that none of your stag mates will ever forget. Well-organised activities mixed with a good balance of dining and drinking at local pubs, bistros and restaurants, as well as reliable transport and good hotel facilities are the ingredients to make for a perfect stag weekend.
