The smart way to do a Stag Do

Here in Newquay, we’ve seen far too many cases of a Stag Do done wrong. With just a little planning, you can avoid the pitfalls of a bender best forgotten and instead make sure your Stag gets a weekend to remember.

The Problem

Have you ever been on a Stag Do weekend and experienced the test of not one, but two nights on the town? There’s always the promise amongst you that the Friday will only consist of “a few drinks”, and the Saturday will be the big push. This is of course is complete rubbish and a heavy Friday night plunges the entire weekend into boozy anarchy.

The telltale sign of an over-enthusiastic Friday is the painful Saturday daytime, which invariably turns into a chore. The troops must be rallied out of bed and forced to have fun.

You’re in Newquay to have fun, but Saturday’s activities are completed with only half of the posse making it through unscathed. You’re all knackered, hungover, hungry and wanting to sleep in your own bed.

Saturday night starts seeming more like an attempt to summit Mount Everest. The strong amongst you grin and bear it, but nobody is on top form.

So what if Friday evening could be just as enjoyable but a little less taxing? What if there’s a better way?

The simple solution

It’s called the Wilderness and Adventure Weekend, and it goes a little something like this:

Friday Evening

Wake up to Wild Camp Brekfast

Settle in, kick back and catch up with your mates over a beer as you are introduced to the camp and the itinerary for your evening.

Do as much or as little as you want – take part in some team challenges and games, learn some fire starter bush craft skills or simply swing in a hammock and watch the world go by.

Saturday Morning

Enjoy a hot breakfast around the smouldering camp fire. How does a bacon and egg sandwich sound? With tea and coffee to warm your bones as you ready yourselves for the activities ahead.

Check in to your Newquay accommodation – drop your stuff off then get on the road to your activity.

Saturday Afternoon

Make the most of what you’ve paid for and get the best out of your activity session.

Option 1 = Wilderness Wild Camp Experience + Surfing Lesson at Fistral beach

Option 2 = Wilderness Wild Camp Experience + Coasteering Session

Option 3 = Wilderness Wild Camp Experience + Surfing Lesson + Coasteering Session

Head back to your accommodation and get ready for the big night on the town.


Get ready to hit the town, feeling fresh and pumped up from a day of Surfing and Coasteering. Now you’re living like a Newquay local, this is going to be a big one.


Do as you please before you leave. We’re always up for catching some more waves or a quick Coasteering route so if you’ve got any energy left, give us a call.
