5 ways to celebrate Father’s Day AND enjoy the outdoors!

There are a million ways to celebrate your Father figure this Father’s Day, but we all know, his favourite way would be spending the day with you. So, on June 16, plan a special Father’s Day activity that will really show the main gent in your life how much you care. If you need a little help coming up with the perfect plan, below are some great options that can happen before or after a nice Father’s Day brunch (and before or after you give him the perfect Father’s Day gift).

We’re sure you’re thinking a gift and doing something could get pricey, particularly if you’re wanting to celebrate as a whole family. So here are our top tips for celebrating your Father figures that won’t break the bank!

Go for a hike

Savour some quality time with dad and explore the great outdoors. There are plenty of activities close to home that will take the whole family out and about for a day of bonding and sense of achievement. Whether it’s hiking, off-road biking, or roaming the countryside, pack a picnic, a couple of outdoor activities (football, Frisbee, etc.) and enjoy a very special Father’s Day, all for free!

Let Dad choose the path and be ready to make amazing memories together.

Take a historical site tour

If Dad’s a history buff, look for nearby historic sites that offer tours.

From the 5,000 year old prehistoric monument that is Stonehenge, to the Georgian splendour of Bath and right up to the swinging 1960s of downtown Liverpool, we have found an historic era to suit everybody.

Some of the tours you can organise yourself, others are so well planned that you can discover ‘England in a Day’… and that even includes enjoying a champagne reception served in Shakespeare‘s garden.

The experience will give him an opportunity to tell you all about his favourite leaders and events, making the day even more memorable.

Pack up a picnic

All Dad wants for Father’s Day: sandwiches, sunshine, a decent drink and his favourite people around him. You can head to your local greenspace, pack up your hamper and enjoy the weather (and company of course).

Pitch a tent somewhere

Whether you head to a campsite for the weekend or decide to set up a tent in your own backyard, Dad will love roasting marshmallows and telling scary stories around the fire.

Try rock climbing

If Dad is a competitive soul, you can head rock climbing. There are indoor climbing centres across the country with one in almost every town or city, allowing you to access facilities and learn some new skills.

It’s great fun. Physically and mentally challenging and gives a great adrenaline rush, a full body work out and is so much more fun than Dad going to the gym by himself!

Happy Father’s Day 2019.
