The Ultimate Gift Guide for an Adventure Traveler

By: Sarah

Adventure travelers are a special kind of traveler. They love to explore, be active, discover new places, and take risks. As one, I know the type of gifts that will inspire them to get up and go. Let's go through twelve of the ultimate gifts for an explorer.

1. Trips with Sourced Adventures


Sourced Adventures offers a plethora of trips for every season, all at a low cost. Their tours allow any adventurer the opportunity to escape the city for the day, weekend, or week. We did their white water rafting day trip from NYC and loved it. To read that experience, click here. 

They have day tours and trips from five major US cities, and international experiences in Europe and Latin America. One of the great things about Sourced Adventures is that they give 1% of total sales to nonprofits that support and preserve the environment. To check out their epic trips and tours click here. 

2. Hydro Flask Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle

This is the best water bottle I've ever used. I've taken it with me around the world. What makes Hydro Flask great is their innovation. They use TempShield™, a double wall, vacuum insulated technology that guards the temperature of your drink. If you bring ice water with you in the morning, I can promise you’ll still have ice in the afternoon. Same goes the other way around. Hectic morning getting in the way of your coffee sipping? No problem. They’ll keep it hot until you’re ready. Another thing I love is that their is never condensation or heat transfer to the outside of the bottle, ever. To get one, click here.

3. One Eleven Watches


One Eleven watches are not only stylish, they're also sustainable. The heart of every One Eleven solar watch starts with a high quality, solar powered movement that continually charges in both natural and artificial light. This eliminates the need to replace your battery, reducing the toxic waste that goes back into our planet. In addition, the watches are waterproof, allowing explorers to be free to jump right in the water. To check out their watch line, click here. To get 15% off, use discount code I5LW0777CD38. 

4. Portable Wood-Burning Stove with Internal Powerbank, Generates Electricity for USB Charging

The award-winning BioLite CampStove's is ideal for an off-the-grid lifestyle. Burning only wood, the CampStove fan creates a smokeless fire that can cook meals and boil water in minutes while turning its heat into usable electricity. Complete with a USB port for cell phone charging, you can cook up wood-fired meals and charge devices using only the sticks around you. To get one, click here. 

5. Sudio Sweden Bluetooth Headphones


I personally use Sudio Sweden headphones while adventure traveling. They are great because they are bluetooth, which allows me more freedom to move around since the headphones do not need to be connected to my phone.

Also, Sudio Sweden's sound signature is delivered by a carefully tuned driver and amplifier. The combination of driver and amplifier is able to separate the sound of every instrument in every song, thereby giving the listener a true studio experience. To get 15% off use code SARAHFUNKY.

6. Intrepid Travel's Incredible Worldwide Adventures

Intrepid Travel offers some of the most unique travel experiences around the world. What i love about them is their off-the-beaten path tours that are guided by locals. This makes the traveling experience more authentic and enjoyable. All of their trips are sustainable because they are committed to making a real difference by investing in local communities, human rights initiatives, wildlife conservation projects and the environment.
