It’s a rite of passage, an excuse to get together with friends, a time for that one last wild blowout before you commit to life-long monogamy and “death do you part.” What are the best destinations for an international bachelor or bachelorette party? The bachelor/bachelorette party is traditionally a debaucherous event complete with pub crawls, strippers and waaaaaay to much alcohol. But where best to spend those precious final single days? The following are some of the most action packed activities for bachelor and bachelorette parties around the world.
1) Baltic Benders and Olympic Bobsleigh In Latvia
This tiny Eastern European country has long been the playground for British blokes looking to misbehave. With beautiful women, a wild nightlife scene and a pervasive drinking culture, the capital city of Riga is a popular choice for stags. The Stag Company (http://www.thestagcompany.com), offers several tour packages through Riga that include the following adrenaline activities: speeding down an Olympic bobsleigh run (reaching speeds of up to 50 mph on the longest track in Europe), shooting AK47s and free falling 120mph on a vertical outdoor wind tunnel.
2) Caving and Clubbing in Iceland
Red Seven, a British travel company specializing in bachelor and bachelorette tours, offers an all-girls excursion calls “Reykjavik Under and Over Weekend”, combining your typical ladies night party shannigans with an extreme caving adventure through hidden lava tunnels. By day, explore underground rock formations left behind by volcanic eruptions, then take a steam in one of the country’s natural geothermal pools. By night, hit the clubs of Reykjavik, a city renown for its wild nightlife. Check out http://www.redsevenleisure.co.uk/
3) Vegas Baby…Relive the Hangover
When it comes to hedonistic hot spots, you can’t beat Sin City! Avoid long lines and bouncer drama with Vegas VIP (), a luxury travel agency specializing in elite nightlife and party services. Bachelors may enjoy the “Tiger Blood” or “Hangover Package,” which includes limo transfers, dinner at Gordon Biersch, VIP club entry, table service and exclusive access to strip clubs like Spearmint Rhino, Crazy Horse III and Sapphire. Relive the movie. Get a Mike Tyson face tattoo and sleep with a tiger in your hotel room.
