Gift Guide: Ideas for adventure travelers

Dec 02, 2016 by The Go Ahead Tours Team

Wherever they are in the world, the adventure seeker can almost always be found outside exploring. The weather never holds them back from trying different activities on our Adventure tours, whether that’s walking along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon or ziplining in Costa Rica. There’s no question that this type of traveler loves any opportunity to experience something brand-new. If this sounds like someone who’s on your list this holiday season, check out our Gift Guide for the adventure seeker below.

Gift Guide for the adventure seeker

1. Collapsible water bottle

The adventure seeker is always on the go and knows the value of packing smart—and packing light. We love this Vapur bottle that can be folded or rolled when it’s not filled up. It’s lightweight and small enough to stash in a bag for easy refills while out exploring—plus, it’s perfect for taking through the security line at the airport.

2. Cork globe

With a globe like this one, tracking past journeys and planning future ones is fun and simple. World travelers can use pushpins to map where they’ve been and where they’d love to head next. Plus, they can leave it out on display as a constant reminder of how much of the world is out there, waiting to be discovered.

3. Travel umbrella

Adventure seekers are ready for anything, even less-than-perfect weather conditions. Gift them rain gear along with a sturdy, compact travel umbrella that can be easily carried while on tour.

4. Waterproof phone case

While cruising to Capri or visiting a floating market in Bangkok, you’ll want your phone handy to snap photos—but making sure it stays dry is a must. A waterproof case is a great way to keep smartphones accessible and protected from the elements.

5. Comfy walking shoes

The adventure seeker’s preferred method of getting around? Exploring by foot. A good pair of walking shoes is essential for staying comfortable during scenic strolls. Check out our tips for picking the perfect walking shoes.

6. Adventure cards

Trying new things is one way to make the most of your free time while on tour. This set of adventure cards, quite different from a typical travel guide, offers up prompts that encourage unique experiences and inspire new perspectives on the local culture.

7. GoPro bundle

Capturing moments while traveling gives us a way to look back and relive memories after a trip. While there are many digital cameras available, the durable GoPro is our pick for the adventure seeker. This starter bundle, which includes a waterproof camera, handgrip, clip, and spare battery, is a great gift that can be taken along to document any type of trip.

8. Passport cover

Every international traveler knows that their passport is the one thing you can’t forget when going on tour. Give this important document a little extra protection with a clear cover that can withstand the wear and tear that comes with travel, or get crafty and create your own using our DIY guide.

9. Go Ahead gift certificate

Give the gift of travel with a Go Ahead gift certificate. Choose any amount for a gift certificate, which the adventure seeker can put toward any of our 175+ tours or excursion options. If you’re interested in purchasing one, give our team a call at 1.800.590.1170.
