Daddy Cool: 5 Fantastic Fathers' Day Destinations


Treat dad this Father’s Day by letting him chose the destination for the next family holiday. Cheap flights comparison site Skyscanner reveals “daddy cool” destinations to bring joy to dads of the world.


Big Game Fishing, Nassau, The Bahamas

Dads love a bit of fishing, though most are probably more used to staring at a float for hours in the local reservoir. Instead, dads can get the trip of a lifetime in the Bahamas where, just four miles off shore, they can be fishing for marlin in 6,000 feet of turquoise water under a tropical sun.


Adrenaline Activities, Queenstown, New Zealand

Dads looking to inject some excitement into life can be booked on a flight to New Zealand and sent to Queenstown for bungee jumping, jet-boating, white-water rafting, sky-diving or perhaps even some southern hemisphere skiing if they are mountain men.


Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid, Spain

For dads who are more culture vulture than adrenaline junky, flights to Spain should be secured and fathers taken to the beautiful city of Madrid to experience one of the biggest and best art galleries in Europe. At this prestigious museum dads can enjoy works from major artists spanning eight centuries including household names like Dali, Degas, Gaugin, Carravagio and Constable.


Track Day, Silverstone, UK

Fathers who boast about their driving skills should be forced to put their money where their mouth is. Silverstone, home of British motorsport, offers tuition and then solo laps in a single-seater racing car with 140bhp and a 0-60mph time of under five seconds. All this takes place around their Stowe Circuit – a track used for testing by top F1 teams.


Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre, Star City, Russia

Fathers who have dreamed of becoming astronauts should be taken to the Cosmonaut Training Centre in Russia where they can experience weightlessness, spacewalk mission simulations and survival training. If money is no object then it's even possible to organise a flight to the edge of space in a MiG-25. Status as ‘World's Best Son or Daughter’ is guaranteed after setting this up!
