While most want to spend the holiday season next to the fire, there are some who love nothing more than to get among the elements. From a sailboat that fits neatly in your trunk to a ski weekend in a box, Elite Traveler brings you a gift guide for the adventurer in your life.
Getting your sailboat from home to water has never been easier with the Tiwal 3 inflatable sailboat. The versatile boat can be used in both fresh and saltwater and fits neatly into just two bags, small enough to be transported by car, boat or even by plane.
Lucky recipients will be treated to a luxury three-nigh weekend for two in a top Swiss hotel. Included in the price are flights from London, luxury transfers to and from the resort and a massage for two as well as ski passes, of course. The box also comes complete with some relevant gifts (a pair of ski hats) and some less relevant gifts (a bottle of Pol Roger champagne) to give your loved one something to enjoy as soon as they open it.
If the ski weekend in a box is your type of thing, then you’ll probably be needing a new set of skis to go with it. That is where the Faction Prodigy 3.0 Collab’s come in. The skis have been designed by Japanese artist Kengo Kimura, making them appear more like art in motion rather than tools.
Complete the package with one of the best ski jackets money can buy. This Loro Piana piece comes complete with insulating down and feathers placed lightly around the jacket and a cashmere-lined hood to retain warmth while you’re out on the slopes.
Wrapped in rosewood and detailed with a sunburst-painted edge inspired by iconic Gibson guitars, Beau Lake’s One Drop is the best of the best when it comes to paddleboard, yet it is still so much more than that. Each purchase will see a donation made to One Drop Foundation, who ensure to availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for communities around the world.
Step into the future this holiday season with your very own hovercraft. With a maximum speed of 60mph, the Hoversurf S3 is reserved for those in need of a big hit of adrenaline. All would-be owners are required to undertake a three-day training course at the Hoversurf R&D hanger in California.
The company claims the EV2 tank to be one of the most capable off-road vehicles ever developed. Boasting 1,500bhp, the Ripsaw continues to set new standards for what tanks are capable of. It is available as a single, two or four-seat version.
