Buy a Defender 110, get an airplane and an adventure trip

Himalaya and aircraft producer Kodiak offer $3-million package


Sure, the price is $3 million, but for that payment you get a Himalaya-upgraded Land Rover Defender 110, a visit to the Himalaya experience center in Wyoming and a customized Kodiak 100 Series II airplane.

“Himalaya, builders of the ultimate modernized rendition of the classic Land Rover Defender, is thrilled to reveal an exciting partnership with renowned aircraft manufacturer Kodiak to create a special-edition package available just in time for the holidays,” the Charleston, South Carolina, vehicle specialist said in its announcement.

“Featuring a Kodiak 100 Series II plane outfitted with customized badging and a distinctive livery, a brand-new off-road ready Himalaya Defender and a personally customized trip to Himalaya new Experience Center in Alpine, Wyoming, this exceptional package comes at a price tag of $3 million for interested buyers.”

Adds Himalaya president Greg Shondel: “When we first built this Experience Center, our goal was to emphasize exactly what the Himalaya brand is all about, which is the desire to seek-out adventure. In partnering with a legendary aircraft brand like Kodiak, we’ve established another element that sets us apart.

“Working with an iconic brand such as Kodiak further exemplifies our commitment to offering the best for our guests who seek an unmatched adventure experience. This winter season we will be offering backcountry guiding on snowmobiles and snow bikes with our team that specializes in custom-built motorsports equipment year-round.”

Himalaya adds that this isn’t just a one-off offer. Kodiak has developed a “limited number” of its multi-passenger K100 Series II aircrafts for potential customers of the offer.

The aircraft features “the latest advances in engineering and technology to create an increasingly safe, comfortable and efficient flying experience,” while the Defender 110 vehicles come with diesel engines and manual transmissions and “remain true to the Defender’s storied heritage.”
