14 Ideas of Activities To Do on a Stag Party (Bachelor Party) In Paris

Your best friend / brother / cousin is getting married and you’ve decided to throw him a stag party (bachelor party) in Paris – but you want to get away from the traditional cliché of the biggest meat eater and a visit to the strip club. Here are a few ideas we carefully selected to help you organize a successful stag party in Paris.


1. Paintball


Paintball is a classic activity in which you can be sure to have a good time with your friends.

The groom has already found the “victim” with whom he will spend the rest of his life, but for you, the hunting season has opened!

The groom will be lent a bunny costume to make sure that you do not miss him!

Average price: From €36 per person.

Reservation & Information



2. Water Skiing on the Seine


You know very well what the Seine looks like – you have walked along its banks, you have taken a tour on a tourist river boat, and maybe you have even eaten in a barge restaurant or had a private cruise.

What if you completed this list with a water ski or wakeboard lesson?

That is what the CN19 (in French only) (Nautical Center of the 19th district) and the SNCP (in French only) (Paris Water Skiing Club) offer. The latter will even give you an apéritif for free. Go for it!

Average price: From €50 per person.



3. Freefall


If you are not interested in gliding, maybe you will be more interested in falling!

The sports wind tunnel or free-fall simulator is an incredible activity for adrenaline lovers. Within a 14-meter high glass tube, you will have the impression of flying like during a parachute jump!

Price: From 69.90€ per person

4. For a Magical Wedding

If the groom is a big fan of Harry Potter, why not offer him an initiation class for quidditch (in French only), the major sport in the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling.

Lessons take place in Vincennes, and the teachers are the Frogs, the 2014 Quidditch French Cup champions!

The only issue is that you cannot be more than four people for an initiation class, so it can be a good idea only if you plan on having a restricted group of friends on that day.

Lessons generally take place on Sunday from 1:30pm to 4:30pm, but you can also call to ask for different hours.

Average price: €5 per person, reservations only.




5. Virtual Reality

Playing video games as a group can be fun, but not very festive nor original for this special day. But if it is what the groom loves most, why not try virtual reality?

Playing virtual reality (or VR) is like playing a video game except that you really are the character and you can totally interact as a group.

Price: €30 per person.

Reservation & Information



6. Privatising a Night Bus

If you want to party but do not want to end up in a crowded club, the best solution for you would be to privatise a Night Bus.

There are several companies in Paris, each one offering different services to the others: Soirée Bus, which invented the concept, Bus Discothèque, Party Bus, Stan & Walter, which is a bit more classy, or le bus bleu (the blue bus), for a vintage touch (webpages in French only).

Average price: between €600 and €1300 per bus.



7. Survival training


The groom is an absolute fan of the TV shows Lost and The Last Survivor?

No need to audition for this survival training (in French only) of 2 days and one night under the stars!

You will learn hunting and gathering techniques as well as techniques for purifying water or making fires. Everything is done in a friendly and fun atmosphere. It’s a true inner adventure, with no filters or avoidances!

Price: €179 per person

Reservation & Information



8. Funcamp


At Lac de Daumesnil, Bois de Boulogne or Bois de Vincennes, an adventure challenge awaits you.

Select from 10 (back to back race, cake race, balloon explosion, unusual rugby, egg crossing, etc.) and get ready for one or two hours of laughter!

Price: From €15 per person.

9. Brew Your Own Beer

May the force be with you as you accomplish your first steps as a Jedi Knight.

Let’s remain in the fun sports area for a moment: have you ever heard of bubble bump football?

The concept of this game is very simple: it is like playing football (soccer) in teams of 4 or 5 people, but with your upper body locked in a giant bubble.

The main difference with football (except for the bubble) is that bumping into other players is strongly recommended!

Price: €19 per person, 1h30.

For the most adventurous and sporty, you can do a commando internship at Xtreme Nature Bootcamp (French website).

Whether it is survival, hand-to-hand combat or a bootcamp, come and test the groom during half-day sessions in a commando course (commando course involving water/mud, smoke, stretcher-bearing, ramping in the mud …) or in a commando bivouac course (commando course, building shelters to spend the night in the forest, initiation to survival, night orientation walk in the woods and breakfast offered).

A photo report is even offered at the end of the course to all participants.

Open to all, the internship includes a minimum of 8 people – enough to have a sports bachelor party!
