11 Squamish Trips to Take with Your Dad

Whether it's his first or his fiftieth Father's Day, you can show Dad you care by spending the day with him this Sunday, June 20th. We asked around and made a list of all the best Father's Day activities. From whitewater rafting to golf, here is our list of top Father's Day activities–and we promise he will enjoy these more than a necktie!

1. Challenge Your Skills at Rope Runner Aerial Adventure Park

Take Dad on the adventure of a lifetime where you can both "run the ropes" and ascend rope ladders, balancy bridges and tottering elements that will put a smile on both of your faces. 

2. Go Fishing

Squamish has a variety of fishing areas that will get you and your Dad hooked in no time. Peruse through the local spots here or book a day out with a guide. Trout Fishing Guides and Valley Fishing Guides both have expert guides who will make your day extraordinary.
