Vancouver: Whistler Superfly Zipline and Off-road RZR Package
Start with a no-nonsense afternoon RZR journey through Whistler mountain trails. After you’ve driven through the forest, it’s time to soar above with the Superfly Zipline. This fly & ride combination is the best way to experience the Whistler backcountry.
Okanagan Valley, BC: Power Rafting Trip on the Thompson River
Experience the thrill of rafting down through the biggest waves and rapids on the Thompson River in Lytton, BC. Best part? It is on a motorized raft. Hang on, you’re in for a ride!
Calgary: Explore the Rockies Helicopter Tour
Lift off on an adventure of a lifetime with a 20-minute helicopter tour over the breathtakingly beautiful Rocky Mountains. You’ll climb from the plains and soar over alpine lakes, craggy peaks and cross the imposing massif of Mt. Loughheed.
Edmonton Segway Tour
This tour is Dad’s chance to get on the revolutionary human transporter, the Segway. He’ll discover first hand what all the fun is about while exploring North America’s longest continuous trail system in the heart of Edmonton’s River Valley. Segway tours are so much fun, even if you’ve never used one before, you’ll be a pro before you’re done.
Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon: Hot Air Balloon Ride (along with 6 other lift off locations across Canada)
Hot air balloon rides can show Dad the world from a different perspective. Plus, it’s a relaxing way to spend time with you. Can you imagine the views too? Gorgeous!
Toronto: Stunt Car Driving Experience
Dad can learn how to drive a car like the stuntmen and stuntwomen in the movies. Experience the excitement of making a car do some fun, crazy stunts. I think the need for speed is in almost every man’s DNA, right? And the ladies too but, this time, it is for the dads!
Ottawa: Biplane Ride Over Parliament Hill
This Ottawa Biplane Flight over Parliament Hill, downtown Ottawa and the Gatineau Hills is the perfect experience for Dad to take a trip back in time to the golden age of aviation. He can strap on an aviator’s cap and goggles and get a bird’s eye view from the open cockpit of a vintage 1939 WACO UPF-7 biplane. Now this is an AMAZING way to celebrate #Canada150!
Montreal: Boeing 737 Flight Simulator Experience
Dad can climb into the Captain’s seat of a Boeing 737 and take to the skies in a jet flight simulator! He can enjoy an ultra realistic Boeing 737 flight simulator experience with thousands of airports around the world from which to take-off and land. It may only be a flight simulator, but the sensation you feel is the real deal.
Halifax: Best of Halifax Foodie Adventure
Taste your way through the heart of Halifax! Discover what continues to make this city unique and delicious during this three-hour guided Best of Halifax Foodie Adventure.
Fredericton, New Brunswick, Oyster Bed, PEI: Stock Car Driving Experience (plus 7 other tracks across Canada)
