Wondering what to get Dad for Father’s Day this year? With June 18th quickly approaching, we curated a list of the best gifts for all of the adventure dads here in Missoula, Montana. Whether he’s a fan of big flavor barbecue or would rather chase fish all day, we’ve got the goods.
For the Dad Who Looks Forward to Slab Saturday
Gift Certificate to Notorious P.I.G. Last year, Missoula was blessed with award-winning barbecue. We haven’t been able to stop raving about it since then, and neither will your hungry dad. Notorious P.I.G. offers a mouth-watering selection of ribs and brisket, as well as some unusual menu offerings like their smoked cayenne-cranberry chicken wings. Call them today.
For the Dad Who Likes to Capture Every Moment
Meet the Canon PowerShot G5 X. This powerful camera packs a punch. Even with its HD viewfinder, 4.2 optical zoom, and ability to capture 20.2 megapixels, it weighs less than a pound. So whether Dad is packing into the backcountry or just looking to lighten his load on the next family road trip, the Canon PowerShot G5 X offers convenience without sacrificing quality.
For the Dad Who Loves Tight Lines
Gift Certificate to the Grizzly Hackle. Instead of trying to keep track of that gift receipt, let Dad pick out his own gear with a gift certificate to the Grizzly Hackle. We’ve got a huge selection of fishing gear, from the best leak-proof waders to the tiniest of dry flies. And the best part? You can shop from your couch.
For the Dad Who Dreams of the Crown of the Continent (a.k.a. Glacier National Park)
Aerial adventures with Glacier Highline. If your Dad prefers an adrenaline-filled day, we recommend visiting the Glacier Adventure Park with Glacier Highlines. From exploring the high ropes course to perfecting his cannonball on the giant swing to showing off mad skills on their rock wall, this is sure to be a memorable outing for the whole family. Prefer something a little more exploratory? Try the Highline Trail. This 11-mile point-to-point trail boasts spectacular views as it follows the Continental Divide and the Garden Wall. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it at the Granite Park Chalet at mile 7.
For the Dad Who Likes Getting Splashed in the Face
High-adrenaline rafting trips with Montana River Guides. MRG is the only Montana whitewater rafting company based at the entrance of the Alberton Gorge. Which means they know the Clark Fork like the back of their hand. They offer a variety of different trip options, from adrenaline-filled days in the Alberton Gorge to scenic tours on the Blackfoot and Bitterroot Rivers. So whether you let Dad pick his own trip or surprise him with one you pick out, he’s in for an unforgettable day. The adventure starts here.
