There's a great range of Cheltenham stag activities here and it's so easy to get out and about in the leafy, rolling countryside to try some fun and new totally muddy experiences which will keep your stags talking for months! Here are some of our top picks.
Getting you and your group out into the water is a breath of fresh air and will often feel like something a little different to the usual paintball, pub and pints which usually fill the majority of most stag dos. It might not be the first activity to come to mind, but we really recommend canoeing in Cheltenham. Take to the rivers and lakes of the picturesque Cotswolds and test your nerve with all the twists and turns which make up the challenging and white-knuckle course! If you want to really surprise your group and treat them to something totally different, then look no further than hovercraft racing party. Each of your mates will get to control their own huge inflatable craft which can and will travel over the water at high speeds - once you've got the hang of it, race against one another in time trials and see who can master the waves! For the perfect hybrid between land and water, try out our unique argocats activity. Make like 007 himself and use your very best driving skills to negotiate not only wet and muddy sloping landscapes, but also driving straight through the water itself! These little vehicles are certainly small but mighty.
Say what you like about the West Country, it's a little bit weird and wonderful and proud of it! Accordingly, there's a great range of totally wacky and unique Cheltenham stag activities on offer which will make your stag weekend a totally memorable experience for everyone. First and foremost, heading to Gloucestershire without giving cheese rolling a go is something of a travesty. We can organise an authentic experience true to the famous annual event which involves chucking a wheel of double Gloucester down a very steep hill and racing against one another for the cheesy prize! The Somerset Challenge is one of our most popular activities of all time in this part of the world and it's a great way to poke a little bit of fun at silly West Country ways. Wang some serious wellies, challenge your mates to a pitchfork duel and take part in the Wurzel knockout. Now if taking it easy is more your style so it's perfect if you're taking a large stag party away but you're still keen to do something unique, our vodka tasting activity could be just the ticket. Not just to be knocked back in shots on hazy nights out, our experts will introduce you and the lads to the fine art of vodka drinking where you'll learn to taste the boozy stuff properly. Watch out for scary penalty chilli shots though!
Just about every group of lads loves to kick a ball around and work up a little bit of healthy competition in a cheeky game of footy or cricket and we can make it happen on your stag do. A game of 5 a side is top value and so it's perfect if you're taking large a stag party away with a wide range of ages. Bond with the boys, have a good laugh and whip out your best fancy footwork. Although cricket is of course seasonal, if you're visiting Cheltenham between April and September, this traditional summer sport will really bring all of your mates together. A world away from kicking a football around the park, having a good stab at ridiculously posh sport, polo is a great Cheltenham stag idea and you'll all feel a whole lot more refined afterwards! Even if you've never set your feet in a pair of stirrups, everyone can give have a stab and end the session with real Chukkas.
