Orienteering is an epic activity for a stag party that loves the outdoors.
The guys from this adventure centre near Derby know how to shape your route so it works perfectly for your fitness levels, skill levels and expectations-not to mention the severity of your hangover! You can choose to take it easy, finding a route to the goal that takes your stag party along some chilled-out woodland trails. Or you can go hardcore, and scramble across the toughest terrain in the Matlock area in a balls-out race to the finish line.
Derby's brilliantly-placed for an action-packed stag party. And there's nothing like getting lost in the woods to cure a headache! Learn the basics of navigating with map and compass, and strike out for the first checkpoint. The goal is to tick off every point on the list, and return to base as soon as you can.
Orienteering is unique in that you can follow multiple routes to get to the same goal. The question is, are you man enough to take the shortest (often hardest) route, or will you get cold feet and go around the long way?
Compete in teams to maximise the adrenaline factor, and make sure you draw up a list of pub-based forfeits for the losers.
