These Holiday Gifts Don't Fit Under the Tree

By James Hamilton | Tuesday, December 15

"Stuff" is out. Experiences are in.

Christmas day and Kwanza are quickly approaching, Hannukah has already passed, you're way behind on your holiday shopping, and GuideHire is here to save the day. These five holiday gift suggestions are a sure-fire way to please the adventurous people on your list. 

1. Tight Lines 

A day of fly-fishing with any one of our knowledgable, skilled, and fun guides. We suggest Harrison Anglers for year-round(that's right) trout fishing just a quick day trip from Boston, and within an easy drive from NYC. 

2. Hard Earned Turns

Ski-touring is not only the best way to ski untouched powder & explore the mountains in the winter, but it's a totally addictive way to get the heartrate up. For year-round mountaineering excursions, we suggest Petra Cliffs based out of Burlington, VT - guiding all over the northeast & beyond. 

3. The Gift of Surfing

Do you have a family member who has always wanted to learn to surf? How about a few lessons with Nantucket's own ACK Surf School? They'll thank you in the form of endless grins this summer :)

4. Wicked Tuna

How about renacting an episode of everyone's favorite National Geographic Reality Show, Wicked Tuna, with the whole family abroard the Karen Lynn with Karen Lynn Charters

5. A Morning in the Blind

Duck Hunting with Eric Gass of GS Outfitting, because his dog Bailey...
