Still struggling to find the perfect gift for the Dad who has it all?

I’m a huge advocate for giving the gift of adventure! Invest in giving Dad a great experience over another tie or coffee mug! Help him take one off his bucket list!

I came up with my top five Christmas gifts for outdoor dads. This isn’t a paid post, an ad, nor was I asked to do this. This is because I had some friends asking for ideas and I wanted to share my top five list with you!

#1 – The Ultimate Helicopter Fishing Experience

You’ll enjoy breath-taking scenery from your private helicopter as you travel in minutes toward some of the world’s finest fishing locations.

Maximize your time on the water with charter helicopter transportation to the best fishing locations that only Erik’s Angling Adventures can provide.

  • Upon arrival by helicopter at the head of Pitt Lake you will be met by your personal, licensed, and insured fly fishing guide.
    • You will board a custom, purpose built jet boat loaded with all the necessary gear.
    • The day is tailored to suit your schedule, and the duration of the trip is up to you.
    • Best times to fish this remote and unique river system are from the end of May through the beginning of November.

#2 –  Blackcomb Mountain Safari – 3 HOUR Whistler Snowmobile Tour

Be thrilled by the sensation of driving or share this mountain experience with a friend as you embark on our classic apres tour to 6000ft. Escape the winter shadows as you meander through old growth forest at dusk, then onto our mid-mountain playground on your way to the charming Crystal Hut. Enjoy a warming treat then step out onto the deck of the rustic alpine cabin and enjoy the views, overlooking Whistler Village as the last light of the day slips behind the snow covered peaks of the Coast Mountain Range. Panoramic mountain grandeur, spectacular sunsets, rich Alpen glow and the natural beauty of Whistler will leave you truly speechless.

#4 – Once in a Lifetime Driving Experience

Imagine giving Dad the gift of driving a Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari F430 Spider, Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R.

Your unforgettable journey will begin in West Vancouver’s beautiful Eagle Harbour, where you will choose the first of four exotic vehicles that you will use to carve out the coastline. The two and a half hour experience will take you along the Sea to Sky Highway and back on a magical 80-kilometer journey along the most beautiful stretch of highway you will ever drive.

Along the way, you will stop to switch vehicles with your fellow drivers.  These stops will provide opportunities for spectacular photos with the stunning backdrop of the islands and mountain ranges of the Howe Sound.

These experiences are available April 1st to October 31st. For more information check out:

# 5 – History, Adventure and Nature at Hell’s Gate

“We had to travel where no human being should venture, for surely we have encountered the gates of hell.” –Simon Fraser, 1808.

Driving the scenic Fraser Canyon with its 7 mountain tunnels into the historic heart of British Columbia you come upon a strange and wondrous sight: 750 million litres of water travelling through a 33 metre wide passage. This is Hell’s Gate, so named after Simon Fraser’s comments during his search for a better fur trade route. Hell’s Gate is poised on the Gold Rush Trail, and it contains one of the only descending gondolas in North America. These aerial trams that cover a 152 metre descent give you a bird’s eye view of one of the most treacherous passages on the Fraser River.

At the other side of the tram ride you will find a variety of facilities including: Simon’s Café (Now with full sit down service), the Gold Panner Gift Shop, Education Centre, Fudge Factory, Gold Panning Station, Simon’s Wall, Observation Decks & Suspension Bridge.

This adventure is open April to October. To get Dad tickets or find out more info check out:
