3 Dad Worthy Adventures

By Jared Alster

The pressure is on - what will you buy dad for Father’s Day? A pair of argyle socks? Another paisley tie? Oh, I know, how about that combination corkscrew/shoe shiner/shaving cream dispenser gadget that you saw in an infomercial?

Here’s another idea - this year, give dad (or grandpa) the gift of experience in the form of an epic trip somewhere in the world. Believe me, the memories will last much longer than any power tool or smoking jacket.

Here are three hand-picked adventures that are sure to provide many opportunities for bonding with dad:

1. Everest Base Camp  - Intrepid Travel

Reach new heights with dad on this classic trek deep into the Nepalese Himalayas. Saddle up in Lukla for your trek through jaw-dropping mountain villages where you’ll stay in traditional tea houses before reaching the pinnacle of your adventure, Mt. Everest base camp at 17,500 feet.

2. Oktoberfest - G Adventures

Beer and brats await dad on this quick 5-day jaunt to the heart of Bavaria. Enjoy the  food, drink, and culture of the original Oktoberfest celebration, while traveling in a small  group. This trip will leave you singing ‘Ein Prosit’ for days to come!

3. Patagonia Hiking - G Adventures

Dad will be awestruck by the landscapes of Patagonia on this 9-day trip. Activities include trekking Torres del Paine, canoeing glacier-fed fjords, and four-wheeling on a working estancia. Don’t worry, dad will be well nourished for this adventure - Argentina is famous for their juicy steaks and full-bodied Malbec wine.
