It’s always a challenge to find father/son and father/daughter activities to do together, but you can start with some fresh air and fun with an outdoor adventure in Hamilton Halton Brant.

Here are a few suggestions that any dad is sure to love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • 1

    Tell Dad he rocks

    Why be limited by four walls at a climbing gym when you can take in views perched atop the Niagara Escarpment? The great news is outdoor climbing adventures are no longer only reserved for experienced climbers. Scale the Niagara Escarpment together with a rock climbing lesson with One Axe Pursuits or Zen Climb.

    Plan a Grand-Daddy of a paddle

    The Grand River is a Canadian Heritage River with gentle currents that make it a great choice for a lazy afternoon paddle. Check our Paddling Page for a listing of area outfitters that will gear you up for a perfect paddle.

    Remind Dad life's a beach

    Sink your toes into the sand at Burlington’s waterfront with a great package from Burlington Beach Rentals that includes a prime spot on the beach along with the use of 4 Muskoka chairs, a large sportbrella streaming complimentary Wi-Fi, 4 hamburger lunches and a day use locker. They’ll also provide some sand toys for the kids to use and take home.

    Show Dad he's pretty fly

    Fly Water Guiding’s five-hour Introduction to Fly Fishing and Casting course on the Grand River will give youth and adults a complete introduction to the fly fishing experience in a fun learning environment where all questions have merit.
