Historically a scene of many a messy stag weekend, Amsterdam proves that if it's not broke don't fix it. The liberal capital of the world is only a cheap flight away, just an hour, and your Amsterdam stag weekend will be laid-back in coffee-shops and buzzing in the Red Light District.
Cruising the 100 km network of city centre canals is a great way to explore the city, with three times as many bridges as Venice, you will find there is a lot more to Amsterdam than wooden clogs and windmills.
Stag parties are more likely to be found in the notorious playground of debauchery drinking a few jars of Amstel, or taking notes for the girl-in-doors at the astounding museum of sex.
Whatever your vice, the Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein districts are the première places to party.
There is not just a trophy at stake for winning the Amsterdam go karting grand prix, but a very satisfying Grolsch to go with your podium position. Alternatively dress the stag in a bunny suit and hunt him down at paintball or kidnap the stag by Tuk Tuk.
For the football-mad stag you can play the beautiful game in bodyzorbs or take a guided tour of the Ajax stadium, following the footsteps (or football boots) of Bergkamp and Cruyff. For the beer monster stag the options are easy, join the throngs of bicycles with your mates on the beer bike, take an all-inclusive unlimited booze cruise, or enter the world of Heineken. The old Amsterdam brewery is a beacon of beer history, interactive amusements and pilsner tastings.
As you would expect Amsterdam offers a red hot stag night, the big one includes a meal, beer, exotic stripper and the local hottie (who just happens to speak perfect English and is your guide for the night). For a non-stop night tour try our exclusive party bus with music, drinks and karaoke or if you prefer to stagger between cool bars then the guided bar tour will ensure you don't waste any valuable drinking time.
The nightclub combo gives you a real taste of the Red Light District with guest list club entry, before finishing the night with a spin on the tables at the casino. For those wanting to stitch-up-the-stag then a roast at the comedy club or an arrest from a policewoman stripper could be in order.
With only a short private transfer from the airport, our local guides will whisk you straight away for check-in, so you won't have to wait to get stuck-in to your Amsterdam stag night.
Over the last 20 years Freedom have negotiated preferred rates and room allocations at the best stag-friendly accommodation in Amsterdam.
Some of the better options for accommodation include 4 star hotels, superior hotels in the city centre, but for those blowing the budget on activities we can book group rates at multi-bedded hostels with breakfast included.
