Don’t even go to the mall! On “Black Friday” we suggested some innovative gifting for the boomer adventurists on your shopping list. However, you don’t have to run marathons or swim 100 miles to stay fit. There are also great gifting options for the mildly-active outdoor enthusiasts on your list.

Here are some of our favorites: –These journeys offer exciting alternatives to the commonplace and will astound the adventurous. Introduce yourselves to the Arctic as it really exists and become one of the fortunate forever changed by the spirit of the land of the midnight sun. – How do you find the soul of a country? All you need is a passion for walking, a stout pair of boots and openness to adventure. The Wayfarers have turned a simple walk into an innovative and educational experience of a country’s unique culture with historians, naturalists, artisans, and more.

Don’t forget the active boomer kids on your holiday list. We recently talked about giving the gift of experiences and how camps might just be a welcome deviation from the normal items on that list. Our Progeny Experiences that Rock section features more active resources that could have them ditch their iPods and cell phones – at least temporarily!

See our full reviews on these (and more to come) in the Boomer – Adventure section.
