Your best friend is tying the knot soon? Your oldest mate is getting hitched shortly? It goes without saying that you have to organise them a party. A simple night in the pub is out – unusual stag and hen dos are getting more and more popular.

If you're looking for adventure, then canyoning in the Starzlach Gorge is just the thing for you! You can abseil, jump into water pools and slide to your heart's content.
A stag or hen do for action lovers – brave men and strong women will be in their element when canyoning – don a wetsuit and use a climbing rope to climb down through gorges, mountain streams and waterfalls.
