Get the 'Cool Runnings' experience on your stag do in Riga with some bobsledding as well as hundreds of other great stag party activities. Add to it, the great restaurants, amazing nightlife and some Baltic beauties and you have the makings of a great stag do.
There's a reason Riga was the most popular location in Europe for a stag do for many years gone by.
Actually, there are several reasons, not least the gorgeous Baltic beauties that live there. Add some amazing stag party activities like bobsledding, beer bikes or a dolphin jetpack flight along with some epic nightlife for good measure and you've got yourself everything you need for an unforgettable stag do.
Better yet the accommodation, flights and beers are all super cheap. So, whether you're on a budget, or just want to save money for the lap clubs, Riga's got you covered for your stag party.
Here are just a few more reasons why we love Riga.
The capital of Latvia boasts the perfect mix of old and new. It's a city where you can find everything you need and more for your stag do, regardless of the time of year.
The pedestrian-only Old Town boasts a web of narrow streets, tall historic buildings and Art Nouveau architecture. It's also home to many shops and restaurants, as well as, the busy Livu Square and it's he Three Brothers. You'll also find plenty of great bars and nightclubs, making it a must visit both day and night during your stag weekend. A great way to see all these wonderful sights, without having to leave the pub, is on the back of a guided Beer Bike.
A conundrum that often occurs on a stag do is the question of should we just drink beer all day or should we embrace and explore the city we’re in. And, a beer bike is an answer to that problem. It's also a great way of making sightseeing far more fun and oh so stag party worthy!
While Riga, which is set on the Baltic Sea at the mouth of the River Daugava, is considered a cultural centre and is home to many museums and concert halls. There is far more to do than get a history lesson or see some attractions when it comes to a stag do.
In the city, you will also find an array of bars and clubs, which stay open until the sun comes up, as well as plenty of restaurants, women and more.
Trust us, you and the lads won't be bored in Riga!
And, as we said, there is more to this historical city than just sightseeing or hitting up the museums!
There is a plethora of stag party activities on offer in Riga including a number of shooting activities thanks to Latvia's lax gun laws. If getting your hands on a Glock, AK-47 and Taurus Revolver rifle sounds like something you'd be into, you need to check out the AK-47 Shooting Package Maximise has on offer.
During the summer months, you can hit the beach during your stag do. It's just outside the city centre and well worth a visit. Of course, when it's a stag weekend, especially a stag do in Riga, there is only one way to truly appreciate the magnificent beaches and Baltic Sea. And, it's with a Private Yacht that comes with your very own stripper!
Other top activities for a stag weekend in Riga include:
Bungee Jumping: Not much explaining needed here. Just know, the time has come to arrange for the groom-to-be to have his life flash before his eyes as a rite of passage before he enters into the world of holy matrimony. If he can handle this, he'll be fine at the whole wedding and marriage thing!
Outdoor Karting: Because, we are sick on indoor karting! But, more importantly, these bad boys go super fast and there's nothing like feeling the wind in your face as you hit the racetrack!
Fake Kidnapping: What is a stag do in Riga without at least one Prank.
Bubble Football: That hilarious stag party activity where you attempt to play footy as your hands and torso are encased in a giant zorb.
Ultimate Firearm Shooting: We've already mentioned our AK-47 Shooting Package, but the Ultimate Firearm Shooting let's you and the lads get your hands on Automatic Glock or Makarov, AK-47, a pump-action shotgun and a Margolin instead.
Quad Bikes: Because what's not to love about tearing Mother NAture apart on the back of four wheels. These powerful bad boys ensure you get a well-deserved adrenaline rush on your stag do in Riga!
Affordable, charming, breathtaking and set on the Baltic Sea, there's never a bad time to visit Riga, especially for a stag weekend.
Sun, rain, hail or shine, Riga always delivers on value, madness and fun. There's also all the superb stag do activities that can only be found Riga!
While in the summer months you can bask in all the Baltic glory, in winter it's all about snow, ice and all-things winter sports.
Whether you head to an ice rink or to one of the mountain regions, there's plenty of winter shenanigans to be enjoyed during a stag do in Riga. From snowmobiles, the Olympic Bobsled Experience to skiing or snowboarding, you'll be sure to have some serious fun with a winter stag weekend in Riga.
It's far from doomy and gloomy here...
If you do find it a little on the chilly side, don't worry there's also plenty to keep you warm or to 'heat' things up during a stag do in Riga. While the nightlife is unbeatable, it's the Baltic beauties that really keep things heated in Riga. And, no more so then the Sexy Sauna.
You'll have two hours in a private sauna, but you won't be alone, you'll have 2 strippers to keep you company and two beers to enjoy each.
But, our all-time favourite stag party activity in Riga is Bobsledding, after all, who doesn't want to enjoy a real Cool Runnings experience. If Jamaican bobsledders can do it, then so can you and the lads.
Well, we don't actually mean, make the Olympics. We just mean bobsled...
But, just like the Jamaican bobsled team, you'll be inexperienced and you'll enjoy the rush of bobsledding for the first time, despite not people believing you can do it.
After all, a stag do is all about doing things you wouldn't normally get to do, so we think bobsledding covers that when it comes to a stag do in Riga.
We don't just, but we know beer, especially the price of beer is an important factor when it comes to picking the ideal destination for your mate's stag weekend.
In fact, it's probably the most important factor. So, you'll be happy to know that not only is Riga super affordable and offers great value for money, but you'll also find pint's for about £2.
Yeah, Riga won't disappoint when it comes to the beer factor.
Throw in some epic nightlife for good measure and you've got yourself everything you need to have an unforgettable stag do.... or forgettable, depending on how much of that cheap beer you enjoy.
And, if you and the lads, what another great reason to enjoy more beer and squeeze in some extra day drinking, don't go past our Beer Tasting activity during your stag do in Riga.
First things first, Riga's sex industry is thriving!
Something that's absolutely worth mentioning when it comes to a stag weekend in Riga.
Maybe you're not into it, but if you are, you'll be happy to know, private lap dances and strippers won't set you back a fortune. In fact, they'll hardly put a dent in the beer drinking budget.
And, Riga certainly loves its ladies, whether you want to enjoy Dinner & a Striptease, head to the Strip Club or enjoy Limo Airport Transfers with a Stripper, there are Baltic babes to be enjoyed at any time of day in Riga.
All the sexy women and cheap beers aside, the nightlife in Riga is a force to be reckoned with, especially in the Old Town.
Expect big nights and partying until the sun is shining the following morning when it comes to a stag do in Riga.
And while Riga is far from a small city, the city centre and party hotspots are compact and within walking distance, making Riga ideal for bar hopping and our guided bar crawls.
While the Old Town is the go-to spot with an abundance of bars, pubs and pulsating nightclubs all next to each other. Miera and A.Briāna streets, as well as Andrejsala, will all sort you out with a top night out.
