Canyoning for stag dos

If you are keen on thrilling experiences, a tranquil stag do might not be what you’re after. In this case, you are in luck, as water activities for stag dos and other adventure sports have become so popular that there are plenty of options to choose from. One of the most exciting is canyoning, a high-risk activity that is only for those seeking strong emotions and not satisfied with something conventional.

Excitement, water, and risk in equal measure

From the dawn of time, activities around rivers and water sources have greatly appealed to us. For leisure, they have always been on the favourites list and it’s no surprise that some of the best stag do activities take place in or near water.

In the case of canyoning, the action takes place between water and air because it is carried out on canyon walls and gorges through which water flows. Small waterfalls or water jumps are ideal places for this activity. However, a certain physical level is required to perform it safely, in addition to being accompanied by a monitor to ensure everything goes as it should.

Ideal for weekends

Not satisfied with a single night stag do? A weekend in a country house might be the best plan to organise adventure activities like canyoning. There are great places in the surroundings of many rural accommodations where you can practise. Besides, it can be combined with other activities like hiking, canoeing and any other outdoor sport.

The possibilities are almost limitless and can be adapted to the conditions of each group member. A good meal and a night of dancing in a nearby village’s disco will make the occasion one of the best stag dos you can imagine.

How to start canyoning

If this is your first time choosing this activity, it’s ideal to start gently. A monitor will help you select the less complicated areas and use the equipment safely. Even though there’s no need to be scared, it’s always wise to stay alert to know where you step and reach the bottom in one piece.

Canyoning hooks you from the first moment. There are those who were hesitant at first but after enjoying the adrenaline rush are eager to organise a new trip to repeat the experience.

If you know the bride or groom are up for anything. If you don’t want to end up doing the same old stuff and if you’ve been tasked to organise the next stag do, add a canyoning session to the list of possibilities and see how you become the king of parties to all your mates overnight. Go for it!
