FAQ about stag do
1. What is the objective of a stag do and how does it work?
The purpose of a stag do is to playfully celebrate the groom's last day of freedom. This celebration involves a day of hilarious challenges and games that’ll ensure the groom will have a laughable lasting memory with his male friends before heading into a lifetime commitment. There are quite a few daytime activities in Ljubljana offering unforgettable experiences. Some of these activities include rafting, karting, paintballing, shooting course or a private pub crawl and many other options where you’re given the opportunity to make a fool of the stag in fun and creative ways. During the evening when the wild fun starts, his group of friends is guided to encourage the stag to complete uncomfortable but fun challenges despite being drunk. To end a perfect day, dinner at a top Ljubljana restaurant will be provided following one of our famous pub crawls. The pub crawl includes hilarious games and challenges for the groom while visiting Ljubljana’s top drinking spots. The last stop is at the best club in town where your group will be provided a private table in the VIP section!

A stag do can easily be celebrated in your home country or city, but given the chance why not take the opportunity to travel to Slovenia’s capital - this way you can combine partying and traveling all in one weekend.

Remember what happens in Ljubljana stays in Ljubljana ;)
