Take a look at our top tips for Bournemouth here, to see why it's a great stag do destination in general. Back to the topic in hand though, Bournemouth packs lots of stag do adventure activities. Being on the coast, there's a great selection of either water or land-based activities to choose from.
Here are the adventures on offer.
Coasteering: Head to the breath-taking Jurassic Coast and explore the jumps, ledges and much more with this superb adventure around the coast.
Canoeing and Bushcraft: Head out on a 24 hour trip. You'll set off in Canadian canoes from Poole Harbour, set up a wild camp and learn some basic bushcraft/survival skills. A really popular trip for those looking to escape for a weekend.
Go Ape: Head to the canopy in the New Forest and take on balance beams, ropes and much more (just don't be the only one to fall off or you may never hear the end of it).
Climbing/Abseiling: This can also be done right by the sea, along the Jurassic Coast. The stag will also be offered the opportunity to do a 'face-first' abseil.
Sea Kayaking: Take to the open seas just a short drive from Bournemouth and take in the amazing scenery once again, sat on top of kayaks.
Staying in Bournemouth also presents a few opportunities to add some extra adventure in to your stag weekend.
Wild camping: As part of a canoeing and bushcraft trip, you'll stay on a wild camp site and get away from boring buildings and people.
Cave camp: A unique camping spot based inside an old mining cave offers an amazing place to stay.
Yurts: Hire out some big yurts to stay in. It's the more 'luxurious' end of adventure with each yurt having its own fire pit and BBQ area, but still counts as adventurous if you want it to.

Similarly to Bournemouth, Devon presents plenty of opportunities for adventure. With some absolutely awesome trips and activities, tried and tested by hundreds (if not thousands) of stag groups, there is something for everyone. Overground or underground, in the water or on the land, you can truly Womble free (we realise some of you may have to Google the Wombles to see what the heck we're on about) and see how good Devon is as an adventure stag do destination.

Coasteering: Torquay in south Devon offers a superb spot for some adventure. Climb around the rocky coastline, jump in and explore the water and generally have a laugh.
Canoeing and Bushcraft: Another great trip, this time setting off along the River Dart. 24 hours of getting away from any settlements and people, set up camp by the river and get to grips with some basic bushcraft and survival skills, so that you can confidently go on more future adventures. Take a look at why these are so popular.
Caving: Bring out your inner Batman and head into a cave for a couple of hours. One of only a handful of publicly accessible caverns in the UK, have an underground adventure as part of your stag do.
Go Ape: Use your ninja-like agility, balance and strength to find your way through a tree-top obstacle course, just outside of Exeter.
Climbing: There are various places across Devon, both indoor and outdoor, to test you climbing abilities whilst on your adventure stag do.
Devon gives you the chance to start the adventure every day by choosing an adventurous place to stay.
Wild camping: You could opt to camp completely wild, somewhere within the Dartmoor National Park or more simply, choose the canoeing and bushcraft trip to have it included as part of the weekend. Your call!
Yurts: Based a short drive from Exeter but pretty much in the sticks, this is a great option for those seeking loads more comfort than a tent and loads more adventure than in a hotel.
We can't leave Scotland out of the list as the area around Edinburgh provides some fantastic activities, making it an awesome adventure stag do destination. Being Scotland's capital city, there's plenty of adventure to be had in the city, but if you're looking for real adventure, there's lots to do not too far outside.
Take a look at our suggestions of the best adventure stag do activities around Edinburgh.
Canyoning: Head around an hour north of Edinburgh and there is an amazing canyon to be explored. With two waterfalls and plenty of slides and jumps to take part in, this is certainly an awesome adventure to be had.
Canoeing and Bushcraft: Again, around an hour's drive from Edinburgh, but well worth the trip if you're looking for true adventure. Head up the river Tweed, camp by the river and learn some basic bushcraft and survival skills.
Go Ape: Swing between trees like our earliest ancestors, like you belong in a zoo. A brilliant adventure activity, but not for anyone with a big fear of heights.
Climbing: Edinburgh boasts an international climbing arena, so no matter your level of experience, you'll find a challenge to suit your adventurous nature.
Edinburgh isn't quite the Highlands, but here's how to stay adventurous on the stag do.

Mountaineering / Orienteering: With such spectacular settings, true adventures aren't far away. Head into the mountains (and they really are mountains) and get your adventure on with some mountaineering and getting to grips with some orienteering skills.
Whilst you're in North Wales why not try this accommodation?
