FOR THE ADVENTURE SEEKER

You can’t steer wrong with a gift card from one of our local outfitters. With them, they can purchase HydroFlasks, sunglasses or downhill ski equipment at Urban Alpine, SUP boards, all season camping gear or snowshoes at Escape Route, and Yeti products, Nordic skis or almost everything a paddler needs from Valhalla Pure Outfitters… just to name a few.  

FOR THE WATER LOVER

Those that love the water can’t think of anything better than being on it, in it or near it. Squamish Watersports offers classes and rentals, and Norm Hamm/Coastal Stoke Experiences runs year-round SUP Paddle Boarding adventures on Squamish’s pristine waterways.

FOR THE GEAR GURU’S

Make sure your gearheads are loaded up on all the best equipment. There’s always room to upgrade/grab something new and Corsa Cycles has everything that the biker in your life might need.    

FOR THE FISHER

A day on the water doing a little fishing is a great way to put your worries behind you and connect with nature. Trout Country Fishing and Valley Fishing Guides both offer day trips and a variety of fishing packages that make a wonderful surprise for someone you care about. You can also sign up for twelve time Canadian National Fly Fishing Championships competitor, Clint Goyette, to teach how to catch more fish with Czech nymphing through Anchored Outdoors.  

FOR THE BIKER

From crud to mud, biking enthusiasts hit the trails on the regular and make the most of the Squamish lifestyle. But have they tried an E-bike yet? Blazing Saddles Adventures provides high end E-bike rentals to help them further explore our vast network of trails.  They also offer guided Eco-Tours that help you discover the diverse ecosystem of Squamish.            

FOR THE GOLF NUT

Buying a round of golf or golf membership is just what the doctor ordered for the golfer on your list. There’s nothing finer that hitting the links at our two stunning golf courses at Furry Creek Golf Course & Country Club and Squamish Valley Golf Club.
