stags in wanaka
“I like being able to be a man.”
The traditional Stag with its bawdy themes and precarious pranks (I once knew a guy whose best man was a pilot - he and the groomsmen got the groom so plastered he passed out and woke up in Melbourne - the wedding was in Dunedin...the next day...) are a bit like the good old socks and sandals combo - uncool.
Guys have finally realised (or admitted) that getting married doesn't mean the fun is over...it is, in fact, the beginning of a whole new, incredible adventure.
Instead of gathering around the groom armed with yard glasses, Jagermeister, a gorilla costume, and duct tape, lads are planning epic fishing expeditions, rock climbing adventures, sailing lessons...the options are endless.
In Wanaka, New Zealand, the perfect Stag Do involves a spot of morning heli-biking, afternoon whisky tasting, topped off with pizza and local artisan beers on a stunning alpine lakefront.
Now, doesn't that sound better than cheap strippers and a hangover??
Here's how Wanaka Bike Tours, Cardrona Distillery, Ground Up Brewing and Structure for Men do Stag's in Wanaka, New Zealand. Take it away, boys...
