Since Vilnius was our first ever weekend abroad, it will always have a special place in our hearts, but don’t let our bias put you off – this is without a doubt one of the most unique and incredible places in Europe to spend a stag do. One of the cheapest destinations in all of Europe, you’ll be able to eat, drink and be plenty merry for very little, so you can really go all out without any guilt. It has one of the best reputations for stag dos, and welcome the rowdy, daft and party-animals with open arms. Cosy pubs and boisterous bars are dotted all around the city, and the club scene is second to none.
If you’d like to do something with a little bit of extra culture, Vilnius has an incredible history, and the city is a mishmash of architecture from every possible era. This classic setting combined with its modern lively atmosphere makes for one of the best experiences you and the lads could hope for when you jet off on your stag weekend. Oh, and incase you needed any more convincing, the locals are very vague about their opening hours, so you just might luck out on a wild all-nighter in a tequila bar or watch the sun rise from a beer garden without even realising it. There’s also plenty of outdoor sports and activities to set you up for your night out or help you get some fresh air after one too many tequilas the night before.
When in Lithuania, it’s only polite to sample some of their local favourites, and there’s no better way to do that than with a tequila show. With 4 beers included, the stag even gets his own private strip tease complete with tequila – what could be more perfect for a wild stag do? Speaking of tradition, it’s an absolute must to try the beer tasting and dinner. Sample some of the country’s most famous beers then enjoy a traditional bite of some Lithuanian cuisine once you’re done. If you want to ease into your drinking a little more slowly and at least pretend you’re doing something cultural, why not try out the beer bike? You get a guided tour of the city whilst enjoying plenty of beers on tap, so you can promise your fiancé you’ll be doing something historical while you’re away.
Vilnius is famous for its incredible outdoor activities, and thanks to its dramatic changes in temperature, you can do anything from snow sports to soaking up the sun. If you’re planning a colder getaway, why not take advantage of this city’s climate and try out some ice fishing? We guarantee none of your mates will have ever tried anything like this before, and it’s one of those activities that looks absolutely class on your Instagram. If you want to try a more high-energy snow sport, get yourselves down to try snowmobiling – speed, adventure and incredible sights – what could be better to blow away the cobwebs on a groggy Sunday? For those of you planning a Summer break instead, there’s still plenty for you, particularly if you have a bit of a need for speed. Outdoor karting gets you and the lads pitted against each other to see who has the best skills on the track, whilst quad biking tests out your nerve across the rough off-road terrain. Once you’ve got a feel for all that rough and ready motoring, there’s always the 4x4 off road safari to really test out your metal. Blast across the Lithuanian woodland through swamps and natural obstacles and don’t let anything stand in your way.
If you and the lads have a bit of a taste of the outdoors, or maybe you’ve just always fancied leading your own army, then make sure you don’t miss out on the tank driving or the military experience. Not only do you get to test your driving skills in the tank, but you also get to fire off a series of weapons, including a Glock, a Winchester and a Kalashnikov – the ultimate lads’ afternoon.
