See if you can handle these adrenaline-pumping outdoor activities in Vancouver

There are so many crowd pleasing activities in this city, but sometimes, crowd pleasing can be… well, a little boring. No, this list doesn’t include the seawall, these activities are for those seeking to be pushed outside their comfort zone. So, are you ready to jump in?
Skydiving in Abbotsford, B.C.

From long strolls in the woods and swimming in the ocean to shopping downtown and taking a leisurely bike ride pretty much anywhere, Vancouver is full of fun leisurely activities we love to take part in day-to-day.

But what if you’re craving something a little out of the ordinary?

Something that will satisfy that hunger you have deep down, just screaming out for excitement.

A day at the beach is all well and fun, but sometimes we need MORE.

If that sounds like you, you’re in just the right place. We’ve got the spots for you to get your blood pumping and your sense of adventure turned up. 

Make sure to pack your sunscreen, water and some protein filled snacks like Jack Link’s original all-beef stick 8-pack to keep you fuelled for the day, because things are about to get INTENSE.

Turns out there’s a much quicker way to get down the mountain! Forgo the gondola and enjoy sweeping views of the entire city as you go careening down the Grouse Mountain zipline, which can top out at speeds of up to 80 km/hr!

Just a short drive out of the city, you’ll find Chilliwack River Rafting. You can book ‘The Classic Extreme’ package to experience what they describe as “the extreme version of our popular Classic run which minimizes the frills, and maximizes the thrills!”

Possibly the most intense activity of them all! Skydive Vancouver is an Abbotsford-based skydiving company; they’re happy to guide everyone from first timers to experienced skydivers!

For those who are looking for something a little less intense and more family friendly - check out the brand new Eagle Coaster on Cypress Mountain. With speeds of up to 40 km per hour, it’s much more suitable for riders of all ages.

And don’t forget to pack a snack for everyone - the Jack Link’s Wild Heat all beef stick 8-pack is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. 

With so many activities out here on the wild coast, there’s lots for you and your friends to do to get your adrenaline pumping. No thrill-seeking experience is fun on an empty stomach, so remember to bring your Jack Link’s along for the ride!


The Original All Beef Stick 8-pack from Jack Link’s makes for a filling protein snack to fuel your outdoor adventures. This deliciously savoury and filling all-beef stick makes for the perfect, tasty treat. 

If you prefer more spice, you can up the ante with an 8-pack of the Wild Heat version of Jack Link’s classic all beef sticks. 

Plus, with resealable packaging, you can take these snack sticks along with you wherever you go adventuring this summer!
