There's loads on offer for your Harrogate stag activities, but we've picked out a few of our top favourites to get the ball rolling…
Anything that's fast, shiny and four-wheeled always makes our best sellers list and that's why we've got a huge amount of driving based activities on offer which really make the most out of the fantastic countryside landscapes which surround Harrogate. First of all, go karting. It's an old one, but a good one and whether your stags are young or old, they'll all love racing against one another in the ultimate battle for supremacy on the track! Now, for something a little bit more unusual, blindfold driving is new, unusual and will really test everyone's nerve. Once split into teams, you'll all be required to make your way around a winding course in a massive 4x4… blindfolded. The only way to know what's ahead is to listen carefully to your mates who aren't allowed to say the words left or right! Seriously fiddly stuff. If you're all go-karted out, grass karting is the perfect alternative. It's just like the usual indoor track version, but out on a grassy course with plenty of peaks and troughs to set you off course.
Sometimes, only something completely and utterly weird and wacky will do and we've certainly got plenty of stag ideas in Harrogate we can guarantee that your mates will never have tried these out before! Familiar with the Segway? It's an upright wheeled, vehicle that uses your own body weight to balance itself automatically and moves forwards and side to side when you simply tip and lean towards the direction you'd like to go. We've got no idea how voodoo like that works, but to be honest, we don't really care, because riding a Segway is quite possibly the most fun you'll ever have on two wheels and try not to slip up like these unfortunate Segway-ers. If you're really keen to get that adrenaline flowing, then sphereing is most definitely the activity for you. Strap yourself into a massive, bouncy plastic sphere either alone or with a friend and get ready to hurl yourself down the side of a huge, steep hill. It's fast, furious and out of control! Ideal when you want to take things a little easier on your stag and get to know a new city, a treasure hunt is a great laugh. Complete a number of team challenges around your stag city of choice using mobile phones and work as two teams against the clock and see who can find the ‘loot' first!
It's really important to schedule a little downtime into your stag weekend to allow everyone the chance to relax, unwind and recharge ready for a big night out or a full day of Harrogate stag activities but the fun doesn't have to stop! We've got plenty of chilled out activities which your group will love. Fishing is the ultimate lazy afternoon option and it's the perfect time to catch up with your mates and give the groom-to-be a little bit of time to unwind before his big day. Even if you're more likely to catch a cold than a Salmon, fishing aboard your very own boat is a fantastic experience that you won't forget in a hurry. Want to drink wine like a pro? Just want to drink wine? Either way, our wine tasting Harrogate stag activity will fit the bill. Learn that there are in fact more varieties of this wine than simply ‘red' or ‘white' now you can impress the ladies with your incomparable knowledge! If you're keen to get a head start, read up before you go. No longer just the sport for kings, horse racing is a great time to try placing a few bets and cheering on your favourite filly with a cold pint of beer in hand. With horse race spectating, you're on to a winner! (fingers crossed).
