Events & Adventures Vancouver Goes Hiking to Welcome Spring

The weather is warming again in the Pacific Northwest, and that means it’s time for us to dust off our hiking shoes! Vancouver has been blessed with sunny skies for the past two weeks, and Events & Adventures members took advantage of that. We spent the past two weekends on two amazing hikes.

There is no better way to welcome the start of spring and summer than by hiking and enjoying nature. Here in Vancouver we are spoiled with emerald green forests, crystal clear oceans and sweeping coastlines. We went everywhere from Lighthouse Park in North Vancouver, to Brothers Creek Trail in West Vancouver, and to more rugged hikes in areas like like Elm Mountain in Chilliwack. There is no shortage of trails so members of all experience levels can join in and make the most of the nature around us this summer.

Hiking is one of those activities that is always a great bonding experience. What better way is there to make new friends than by exercising outdoors, while laughing and exploring untamed with a group of singles just as adventurous as yourself?

If you missed out on the first few hikes of the year, don’t worry there will be many more to come. There is nothing quite as satisfying as dipping your toes into a stream while enjoying a picnic after a hike and meeting a special someone who appreciates nature the way you do, or climbing to the top of a mountain with the enthusiasm of new friends by your side!

Get Out There and Meet Other Active People in Vancouver

Adventurers, welcome to the new sport known as bubble soccer! A twist on the classic game of soccer (or football), this new sport is quickly becoming extremely popular all over North America. While the rules of the game do not differ from soccer, the intensity of the levels of fun certainly do! In bubble soccer the games are shorter, and while you try to score as many goals as possible during the games, you are doing so while inside a large and transparent inflatable bubble. The plastic force fields of your bubble let you flip, bounce, and roll out of any encounter!

Our Vancouver members recently enjoyed a private bubble soccer session with Bubble Ball Vancouver. We spent the afternoon being silly and trying out this hilarious game. Once we arrived at the gym Events & Adventures reserved just for us, it was time to play ball. Our instructors made sure that we got comfortable inside our inflatable bubbles, and taught us the most important rule of bubble soccer—to have fun!

After a few games of five against five, we were taught even how to play other childhood games like British Bulldog, Last Man Standing, and Red Rover from inside our bubbles. If you can’t imagine how imaginative we got with our giant bubbles you’ll just have to try out bubble soccer with Events & Adventures and next time see how creative it is!  It’s a sport for virtually everyone, and it was made for active people seeking something out of the ordinary. Bubble soccer was a huge hit, so don’t miss out on the fun next time with Events & Adventures Vancouver!
