Lindis Lodge

Surrounded by 2500 hectares of New Zealand's mountains and grasslands, the Lindis Lodge is the cushy way to get your adventure fix. The resort goes nearly undetected. Its wood plank roof blends into the landscape, peaking up from the Ahuriri Valley floor only to reveal walls of glazing. Lined with rich wood, the suites are a contemporary haven to unwind and gaze at the rugged surroundings. Speaking of the surroundings, the pristine lands of Ben Avon station are prime for activities like horse trekking, fly-fishing, and biking. For something a little more extreme, guests can go off-road in a 4WD buggy or take to the skies in a glider, flying around Mt. Cook and Milford Sound. After refueling on high-country Kiwi fare, visitors should head back outside with a glass of local wine and end the night with some world-class stargazing.

The FJ Company 1964 Land Cruiser Surf Wagon

Racking up years of experience restoring vintage Land Cruisers, The FJ Company has perfected the art of reviving old, dated machinery. Their latest is a 1964 Land Cruiser FJ45LV, a worthy surf wagon ready to cruise any coast. The build started as a derelict FJ45LV with more rust than original paint. The client wanted a modified 1960s FJ45LV that they could take to the coast, “in search of the area’s best sand and surf.” Mission accomplished. The FJ Company stripped it down to the original sheet metal, repainted it in a two-tone teal and white paint scheme, and then outfitted it with all the modern features The FJ Company is known for. Head over to their website to learn more (or order your own custom build).

This GMC Short Bus Might be the Ultimate Adventure Van

There’s no denying how popular the adventure van trend has become – and it makes sense, as putting your home on wheels is one of the best ways to see the world. Most people turn to pre-built examples, or someone with experience, there are others who are a little more industrious. In fact, one couple (who go by the handle WeTravelByBus) turned an old GMC Short Bus into one of the best adventure vehicles we’ve ever seen. Interestingly, while its owners hail from Berlin, the bus originated in Florida, USA – and, judging by their photos, it hasn’t stayed in once place for too long since.

The ‘A-15’ Scrambler Pays Tribute to a Man's Dog

The latest custom build from Sydney-based Gasoline Motor Co. is this rugged, off-road-ready scrambler — a 1200cc A-15 Harley-Davidson project that pays respect to the client’s lost K9 partner Angel — a Brindle American Staffy rescue dog: a rescue pup with a hunger for adventure, a love of outdoor pursuits and ultimately a catalyst for creative ideas. Franky, the owner of the A-15, asked that the build be aggressive, edgy, and able to handle just about anything he could throw at it. And we’ll be damned if Gasoline Motor Co. didn’t deliver in spades.

Norwegian Cabin Cluster

Up at the north end of Europe, off the coast of Norway, there is an archipelago of islands known as Fleinvaer. Amongst those tiny Arctic isles, far from the hustle and bustle of normal society, a cluster of cabins has been erected – called Fordypningsrommet. And you can rent them out.Equal parts isolated vacation getaway and artist colony, this unique grouping of structures actually functions as a larger whole, like a house separated into smaller parts. That means there are cabins for sleeping, one that houses a kitchen, and another for bathing. There’s even a sauna down at the base of the property on a dock over the calm cold waters of the Norwegian Sea.
