Extreme Sports Holiday Ideas For Father’s Day

Want to get your dad something better than a pair of socks for Father’s Day? How about packing him off on an action-packed adventure with one of these top extreme sports holiday ideas!


You don’t have to head to distant shores to get a hit of adrenaline. Coasteering is an incredibly popular and growing outdoor activity in the UK. It combines rock climbing, or scrabbling up a cliff face with getting in the water to traverse the coastline. Full-on sports extreme enthusiasts will enjoy leaping from clifftops into the water, those with less of a head for heights, or death-defying feats of fun can miss out large leaps, and keep to water level.

Key Destinations:

  • Cornwall
  • Devon
  • Dorset
  • Wales
  • West Scotland


This is quite possibly the most extreme camping possible. Take one (very) small tent, attach it to a cliff face, enjoy the view, then sleep. Portaledging is best suited to fathers who already have an enthusiasm for rock climbing, but it allows them to reach ever higher peaks by inserting an overnight stay half way to the moon.

Key destinations:

  • Yosemite National Park
  • Devil Bay, Newfoundland
  • Dolomites, Italy
  • Troll Wall, Norway


Think your dad would enjoy all the fun of snowboarding, but with the sunshine and sand of a hot holiday destination? Then you should check out sandboarding, it is the activity du jour for thrillseekers who like sunshine too.

Key destinations:

  • Egypt
  • Australia
  • South Africa
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Peru
  • Chile
