If you’re in the process of planning your stag do in South Wales and environs you’re learning that the possibilities are endless. Maybe you’d like to plan something a bit different than the usual party-all-night at one strip club after another till you drag yourself home in the wee hours, wake up in the afternoon with a terrible hangover and contemplate the decidedly sobering prospect of facing an angry hen. Ah who’s kidding, that almost has to be a part of any stag do worthy of the name, but that doesn’t have to be the whole gig. It’s summer after all and that means the opportunity to take your do outdoors.
And there is precedent for it. According to Time magazine, the first historical appearance of the bachelor party was circa 2,500 years ago in, of all places, ancient Sparta. As you know, the Spartans weren’t exactly known for their wild and crazy ways. Those guys thought dying to the last man at Thermopylae was a jolly holiday. But it’s a safe bet that their pre-wedding festivities included lots of strenuous outdoor activity as well as drinking and wenches.
But today’s bachelors have a lot more Stag weekend destinations and activities to choose from than their predecessors did. And South Wales offers some outstanding stag do activities. Cardiff, Swansea, Porthcawl and Brecon Beacons collectively offer exciting outdoor adventures including kayaking and scuba diving, surfing and coasteering, camping and gorge hiking, and much more, all in some of the most beautiful scenic vistas in the world.
