Father’s Day is fast approaching and it can be incredibly difficult to know what to get him for a gift. While many people would opt for a new wallet or watch, there are some gifts that are priceless. Spending time with your dad is probably something he would appreciate much more than another tie to add to his collection. So, this year why don’t you take him for a well-earned break, and plan something a little special?

The Lake District is home one of the most beautiful areas of the country, providing a perfect setting for a short relaxing break. A region that has something for everyone to enjoy, you can extend the invitation to other family members and make it a family trip if you wish. If you’re wondering what adventures the Lake District can offer, here is just a little bit of inspiration.

Outdoor Adventures

If your dad is partial to an adventure or two, and can’t sit still for very long, then the Lake District is the dream destination for this year’s Father’s Day. This area of the UK is home to some of the most stunning scenery in the whole country, and there’s plenty of different ways to see it.

The Lake District plays host to a number of mountains, including England’s tallest mountain, Scafell Pike. Whether your dad is up to the challenge, or he’d prefer a leisurely stroll around one of the fell tops, he’ll find his feet easily. Reach the top and you’ll be rewarded with breath-taking views; what could be a better gift?

You can also cycle around the Lake District. Spoilt for choice thanks to the number of country lanes and cycleways, you could even get involved in some mountain biking if you’re that way inclined. Providing the perfect day out for you and your dad to catch up and do something different, a trip to the Lakes is a truly unique present.

Watersports / Boat

Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to the Lake District without visiting one of the 16 lakes in the area. Whether you just want to wander around the edge and take in the wildlife, or you’re looking for something a little more exciting, you’ll find it here.

You have the opportunity to take out a boat for the afternoon, or you could go completely wild and take part in some watersports. From canoeing to surfing and even water-skiing, the area is renowned for its water-based activities. For a trip to remember, treat your dad to sailing lessons or something equally as memorable.
Wining And Dining

When all the fun and games is over, it’s time to relax and unwind. The Lake District is just as alive in the evening as it is in the day, with plenty of Lake District Hotels to choose from. With some having quality restaurants too, you have the chance to reflect on your exciting day together and relax in luxury!
