Best Destinations for a Stag Do in October

October is by far the best month for a weekend break. Summer heat and tourist hordes make many stag do destinations overcrowded and overpriced. Spring showers make the best-laid stag party plans turn out a damp squib. And unless you prefer your temperatures in the negatives (and there are nutters out there that do), the less said the better about winter travel with all of the pitfalls of freak snowstorms and flight cancellations that can ruin a perfect weekend away with the lads. No, no, to our minds, there’s no better time for a stag do than October.

Here are our top stag do destinations for your weekend break with mates during October.


If you and your mates are looking to avoid crowds and crushing heat then October is the perfect month for a stag do in this famous city. The days are still sunny and in the 70s°F (20s°C) and the evenings are mild – perfect weather for partying hard. While the tourist hordes tend to drop in numbers during the autumn, a word of warning: Prague’s hotels still classify October as ‘high season’ meaning you won’t find many cheap deals if you try and go it alone rather than book accommodation through us.

Like many cities across Europe, Prague really comes alive with festivals and events during October because the summer heat has abated and the locals are more willing to spend entire days outdoors. I mean, just check out some of these listings for this October: Nickleback and Simply Red in concert!…oh wait, that sucks. Yeah, better stick with us in arranging your stag weekend – we’ve got all the best adventure activities a stag could ever want including an action day of tank driving, or indoor go-karting, or indoor sky diving, or hovercrafts, or quad biking, or…you get the idea.

Prague’s nightlife is hot no matter the season. Our absinthe activity sets you up for a crazy night at some of the city’s best clubs, or maybe you’d rather just sip some cocktails before meeting a real cocktease at one of the city’s hottest strip clubs. Whatever you fancy, October in Prague is perfect for a stag party.


There are plenty of reasons for making a weekend of it in Budapest on your stag do. The food, the nightlife and the culture – everything is top-notch in this amazing city. Make no mention of Munich’s Oktoberfest with its six million horde of tourists, Budapest’s Oktoberfest is where it’s at if you’re looking to drink beer. And there’s one really special party in Budapest during October. Check out the Bath Parties in Budapest that bring you laser shows and discos in the famous Lukacs Bathhouse and enjoy the visual/tactile sensations it offers, all while mixing with gorgeous babes in your swimwear.

Besides all the cool stuff mentioned above, there’s fun to be had throughout the year with activities like our airsoft battle, potholing adventure, or maybe just betting on the ponies. And if your stag craves some hot and heavy nightlife action there’s plenty to be had in Budapest with our steak and lesbo show, our VIP strip club activity and if you’re up for a special treat, our mud wrestling activity.

So if you’re looking for cool days and hot nights on your stag do, there’s no better place to be than Budapest in October.


Krakow’s October is known as the golden autumn – the weather is dry and mild and the trees’ leaves turn a variety of colours making for a spectacular backdrop to this beautiful city. Except…who really cares about the trees on a stag do? Ok, so the temperature is going to be a bit cooler than the other destinations on this list but you can always warm up with a couple of stiff drinks on our vodka tasting activity or get all hot and bothered with a couple of Polish beauties on our oil wrestling activity. And really, with average temps in the teens (Celsius) it’s still plenty warm enough to partake in a few of our outdoor adventure activities like quad biking or 4×4 offroading. Or maybe you just feel like shooting stuff – which is perfect as our AK47 and Co. shooting activity offers you and your mates the chance to lock, load, and loose off a bunch of rounds using a Glock, Uzi, shotgun, and the aforementioned AK.

So if you and your mates want to work up a sweat during the day and party hard all night, Krakow is one of our top October destinations for a stag do. (And the trees are very pretty…)
