Four Great Sober Stag Do Ideas

When you think of a stag do, you’ll often think of a whole heap of booze, and some rather raucous behaviour. But that’s not the most ideal stag do when your stag is an alcoholic and in recovery, or if a number of the party are sober when it comes to the drink.

The last thing you want to do is get back from a weekend away and rehabilitation may be needed again for the groom. You’d certainly be off the invite list, that’s for sure.

However, it does raise a serious point. Many stag dos are required to be sober and that means no big pub sessions, no brewery tours and most importantly no possible temptation for anyone that is in recovery from alcohol addiction.

So, what do you do instead? Well, there are tons of options and some amazing sober stag do ideas out there, it’s all down to personal taste.

However, we have pulled together our favourite sober stag do ideas to provide you with a bit of inspiration…


Let’s face it, paintballing is a classic when it comes to stag dos and you certainly don’t have to have consumed alcohol to do it. In fact, if anything that would hamper your performance.

It is fun for everyone and adds a great element of competition to any stag do.

Play with a legend

Another competitive stag do option, but one in which memories will certainly last a lifetime is the chance to play with a legend. Essentially what that means is a sporting legend will come along to a game and play with you.

It’s particularly popular with football/soccer fans and sites such as Play With A Legend can organise it all for you, with a host of footballing greats on the books.

Quad Biking

Another idea where it really would be foolish, and illegal, to get alcohol involved is quad biking. It’s a real adventure and thrill that many people will only do once in their lifetime. Just make sure the groom doesn’t fall off and end up with broken bones for their wedding!


Sailing can be a real bonding experience that requires teamwork and trust. There’s something beautiful about being on the open seas with your best buddies and it’s the perfect chance to sit back, relax and catch up when the waves are calm too.
