Father’s Day ideas for the outdoorsman

Posted on 1st Jun, 2015 by Jackie Jolliffe


With Father’s Day fast approaching it’s time to start finalising those plans and make this year’s celebration together the best yet! While we covered the perfect Father’s Day plans for the sporting dad a few weeks back, today we’re looking at ideas and activities for the outdoorsman…

If your dad loves nothing better than time in the great outdoors, this blog post is for you! Whether he loves soaking up the atmosphere in the garden, hiking in the nearby countryside or enjoying those very British country pursuits, there’s something perfect for the both of you.

Clay pigeon shooting

If yout dad sees himself as one of the elite in his tweed suit and shooting gear, why not take him clay pigeon shooting? As one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, clay pigeon shooting is a great day out for those who like a challenge. Plus it’s ideal for beginners and experienced shooters alike.

If it’s his first time then treat him to a lesson, otherwise venture out to your nearest North West location and enjoy a shoot – along with a cheeky tipple or two!

Top shooting venues in the North West

Manchester Clay Shooting

Cheshire’s Catton Hall

Lancashire’s Kelbrook Shooting School

Arrive in our: Rolls-Royce White Phantom – the choice of the rich and famous.

Off road driving

off road

For the adrenaline junkie you can’t get much better than an off road experience. Saddle up and explore an exhilarating trail, getting very mucky along the route as you travel through the hollows and humps amongst your territory. With experienced trainers on hand, quad biking is great for all the family.

Leyland’s Dirt Extreme

Arrive in our: White Range Rover Sport Overfinch – great for the terrain and getting you in the mood for that drive!

Adventure for the adrenaline-seeker

One of the top activities for pumping that adrenaline is Aerial Extreme, set in Liverpool. With over 60 obstacles, offering the ultimate in high rope adventure, the Aerial Extreme is the biggest of its kind in the country.

What’s more, as it’s set adjacent to the Safari Park you’ll hear the threatening roars of the lions and tigers as you hang from a height. Perfect for today’s Tarzan or action man-wannabe.

Arrive in our: 16-seater Black Hummer Limo – show everyone you mean business in a car to catch everyone’s eye!

wake boarding

If your dad loves catching a wave and all things coastal then get him down to the Helly Hanson Watersports Centre in Salford Quays. With modern up to date equipment, first class facilities and tuition, it’s a great place to enjoy those watersports if you can’t quite make it to a beach.

The setting of Salford Quays is also great to enjoy post-event. With some fabulous bars and restaurants on site you can reward all your hard work with a slap-up meal.

Arrive in our: Black Chrysler Limo – opt for a sophisticated touch, perfect for your Salford Quays day trip.
