Shopping for someone whose passion is traveling can be tricky. Gift cards can lack meaning and typical gifts can be unpractical. So when it’s all said and done, what do you get the traveler in your life? We all know that certain person that can’t still. Maybe they love to live out of a backpack or thrive on filling their passport with stamps. One thing is for sure, they love experiences. Afterall, that’s what exploring a new place is about. We happen to know a thing or two about people that love to travel so we’ve used our expertise to curate holiday gift ideas that the traveler in your life will love.
The Scandinave Spa
Even avid travelers need to relax. And the Scandinave Spa is the perfect solution to entertain as well as provide a chance at serenity. Guests are invited to experience the Scandinavian tradition of hydrotherapy. Cycle through hot-cold environments for an energized and healthier you, ready to take on the world.
A Whistler tasting tour is the perfect gift for someone that both loves exploring and loves to eat! Over a whole afternoon or evening, a guide will lead the way through Whistler village to several restaurants. Here, chosen menus and paired wines are to be sampled and enjoyed. Eat, drink, stroll, repeat. Bon appetit!
A Sleigh Ride
The wonder of winter in the mountains can be enjoyed from a padded seat, and under a warm blanket. Imagine the sound of a horse’s hoofs in the soft snow and a dusting of fresh flakes covering the surrounding trees. Tucked snuggly into a sleigh, these are the sights and sounds of a sleigh ride in Whistler. The traveler in your life will love this unique experience.
Tick this one of a kind activity off the bucket list. An Olympic legacy, the bobsleigh and skeleton facility is a result of the 2010 Olympics. While many high-level competitions happen at the facility, it is also open to the public to try the icy track. Participants can expect to reach speeds of up to 125 km/h as they soar down. Don’t worry, safety is of the utmost importance and a briefing is done prior to entering the bobsleigh.
Is your traveler an adrenaline junkie? Help them explore the Whistler backcountry with the aid of horsepower. A snowmobiling adventure can take them places they never dreamed of going. What’s more, this unique experience is available to all levels of rider- all you need is a valid drivers license.
