If you are looking for a fantastic European city to hold your stag do, where your pound stretches just that little bit further, then look no further then Riga. Riga is the capital of Latvia, two hours north east of the UK. During the summer months it’s hot and in the winter it’s freezing!

One of the main reasons why a Riga stag do is so popular is that a pint of premium lager or beer will only cost you around £1.50. You can also eat out for under a tenner, which is not bad for a European capital city.

Stag Do Activities in Riga

Riga also offers fantastic stag do activities, which include bobsleigh, quad biking, karting, firearms shooting (yes, real guns including hand guns and pump action shotguns), chilling out on a yacht with some beers, snowmobile safari, guided bar crawls…. the list goes on and on.


Riga’s hospitality is also second to none, and most good stag companies organise airport transfers for stag parties by a personal female guide. She will drive you to your hotel and will also take you to any activities that you’ve booked over the course of the weekend. Your personal guide will help you cover every inch of the amazing nightlife in Riga, ensuring that you don’t miss out on the best bars, pubs and clubs. Like the London Cabbies – they have the knowledge.

Riga has exceptional summer temperatures so most people head to the beach on weekends. Riga’s white, sandy beaches are perfect for a game of football, volleyball and getting a tan. During the winter months they get tons of snow, ideal for proper tobogganing and snowmobile safaris.
