This is Not Your Father's Bachelor Party: 10 International—Stripper-Free—Themed Destinations

Forget strip clubs and tawdry hotel rooms. Take the boys race-car driving in the Baja desert, heli-fishing in Alaska, or maybe even partying on the North Pole.

For some men, the idea of organizing a bachelor party at a strip club or a hotel room sounds banal, if not crass. It's what your uncle did 30 years ago, when Vegas was alluringly skeezy. A best man (or anyone in the party) can and should suggest alternatives: stays at luxury ski resorts, bacchanalian wine-country retreats, European motorcycle tours—something memory-making, not reputation-damaging (regardless of what you thought of those Bachelor Party movies).

Below are 10 you-never-even-knew-this-existed ideas for evolved, civilized, modern men with a yen for something different. Whatever you do, just don't call it a bro-cation.

For Men Seeking Their Inner Cowboy
The Men's Escapes at The Ranch at Rock Creek

Philipsburg, Montana
For dudes looking to brush up on their "man skills," this trip offers highly customizable packages, which can combine heli-fishing, barbecue lunches on mountaintops, shooting rifles and pistols, paintball, hunting, grilling, drinking local beer under the stars, and lessons in roping, riding, and handling cattle. When it's time to hang up your hat at night, you'll do so in one of the ranch's rustic yet refined log cabins or canvas glamping tents (complete with wood floors, queen-size beds, fireplaces, and full bathrooms).
Price: $6,250 per person for four nights, based on four people participating.
