Father’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than by embracing the great outdoors together? Whether you’re planning a day out for your own dad, father-in-law, father figure or even one for yourself with the little ones, join us as we explore five exciting ways to make this Father’s Day one to remember.

1. Go on a Hiking Adventure

Is there a hidden corner of the UK Dad has always wanted to explore? Or perhaps a local walk of his that he loves to return to? Strap on your hiking boots, pack up essentials like water and snacks, and head out together to explore. (Our top tip: take a camera with you to snap some memories).

2. Take to the Water!

If your dad has a love for the sea, an exciting water adventure is the perfect way to celebrate Father’s Day. Whether it’s kayaking, paddleboarding, or even a leisurely fishing trip, some time together by the big blue is sure to put a smile on his face.

3. Hunt for Real-Life Treasure

Geocaching is a great way to get your little ones moving and exploring the great outdoors. Using an app on your smartphone, you can find hidden caches, which are small containers that have been hidden by other geocachers. You’d be surprised how many there are around the country – there may even be one hidden right by you now!

4. Enjoy a Picnic with a View

We all know a picnic is the perfect way to spend some time outdoors, but why not make it that bit more special by finding a spot with a breathtaking view? Pack a basket (don’t forget the cake!) and find a scenic spot, like the peak of a hill, a quiet beach or a botanical garden. Spread out a picnic blanket and enjoy the fresh air, sunshine, and each other’s company.

5. Pedal Through Scenic Landscapes

Saddle up and hit the trails for a Father’s Day bike ride! Whether it’s a highspeed adrenaline ride or a more casual, conversation-filled meander, a bike ride is a great way to spend quality time together. Seek out scenic routes that wind through pretty landscapes or, if dad’s more the competitive type, why not look for a local cycling event to enter together?
