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 the Gender-Role-Bending Man
License to Wed at Badrutt's Palace

St. Moritz, Switzerland
This is the ultimate 180-degree turn away from "the last night of freedom" thinking. The two-night License to Wed package at Badrutt's Palace will have you and your entourage taking an ironing course with a housekeeper, an etiquette lesson with a butler, a cooking lesson with the executive chef, and a tour of the palace wine cellar with the sommelier to ensure you're ready to fulfill your duties as a modern-day husband. Once you've earned your keep, it's on to the pleasure center: chef's-table dinners, Rolls-Royce transfers to high-octane tobogganing or sailing (depends on the season), and a concierge-curated pub and club crawl to round out your weekend of extravagance.
Price: $1,627 per person for two nights.
