Dad is often the guy you sit down to watch a big game with, or have a couple of beverages with while firing up some goodies on the barbecue. However, with Father’s Day fast approaching, you could consider alternative ways of appreciating dad while being active.

There’s nothing quite like bonding in the great outdoors, or even passing over the game on television to engage in some sports with dad by your side. Here are eight healthy Father’s Day activities for you to consider that dad will likely appreciate…

1. Take a Hike

Grab a camera, some water and put aside a few hours to go for a long nature stroll with dad. It’s a great way to reminisce about the old days, as your pop probably took you for walks in nature when you were a tot.

Walking is good low-impact exercise for you and your father, and the fresh air and movement will benefit you both mentally and physically. If your dad isn’t someone who regularly treks out into the trails, perhaps you should choose a route that’s more manageable in terms of length and terrain.
