Tick off a bucket-list item this fall and get your adrenaline pumping. Try off-roading in a fully-equipped Jeep, fly above the treetops, or take aim at B.C.’s longest indoor shooting range.

Go on the road trip of your dreams with Hastings Overland (33 Commercial Dr.), a new rental service that provides guests with Jeeps fully-equipped with rooftop tents, custom-made tailgate kitchens and all of the required camping gear (everything from a stove to an auxiliary cord for road trip tunes). Rentals are available for all guests with a valid Canadian or international drivers license (in English), and you can choose a pre-planned trip (everything from Vancouver’s coast to Washington or Oregon) or follow their handy guide to build your own. Visit the website to learn how it works, and for their terms and conditions.

Grouse Mountain (6400 Nancy Greene Way, North Vancouver) offers a plethora of activities to get your blood pumping. In the warmer months, start your adventure off with the Grouse Grind, a challenging 2.9 km hike up the face of the mountain. Then, spend the rest of the day paragliding, zip-lining or axe throwing before taking descending the mountain on top of the gondola with the Skyride Surf Adventure. See the website for rates, dates, and restrictions.

Tick off a bucket-list item when you visit The Range (2-9938 201 St., Langley), B.C.’s longest indoor shooting range. The Range is open to the public and unlicensed shooters, and features sixteen 30-metre lanes, high speed electric target retrieval systems, and training and tactical orientation programs.
