WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Hey, it’s great to meet you & thanks for checking out our adventure travel business.
We’re Darren & Tracey, a husband & wife team with a passion for the Great Outdoors. We literally love to wander where the wifi is weak & have been keen explorers for years.
We’ve worked in the outdoor industry for over 20 years & have been involved in outdoor activities for most of our lives, traveling the UK & beyond.
Hitting our 40 somethings we decided to make a change to our extremely hectic lives. A few factors influenced our decision to move into pastures new & on an epic road trip in one of our Land Rover Defenders from Northumberland to Turkey we resolved to ‘move on’.
There is nothing more cathartic than the open road. On our five week expedition, through 14 countries, with our then 16 year old daughter (no mean feat persuading her to join us!) we felt a sense of freedom &
calm that we hadn’t felt for many many years. Our Turkey adventure led us to launch Overland Adventures & we have never looked back since.
That trip & holidays to the Lakes, Scotland, the Scottish Isles as well as exploring our own region, Northumberland & many other wonderful places meant we could really consider what our customers would need if they were to take one of our Landy’s on an overland experience.
As you can imagine, we’ve made many a mistake with kit, equipment, clothing & food over the years. Those mistakes (including way over-packing clothing – you really don’t need a lot for an adventure like this) means we have fine-tuned the kit we include in our Defenders to an absolute tee. Everything you could possibly need but nothing more than that (barring the little Northumberland Hamper as a small thank you to our
Our aspirations are simple: to provide the very best off-grid, open road experience we can in iconic British Land Rover Defenders that will create memories for a life-time. If we can do this in an environmentally conscious
way, making sure we and our clients respect the Countryside Code and Leave No Trace we will consider ourselves incredibly successful.
Our success comes from the incredible experiences our customers create & we hope we have given you all the tools to create more of them.
Darren, Tracey & the Overland Team
What People are Saying
“We took a hire for 3 nights. Slept like babies. Wildcamped in Scotland. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you!“
Kate & Jo
“Our Northumberland Adventure”
“Absolutely incredible trip & fantastic set up. We’ll definitely be back. Attention to detail was second to none. “
“A brilliant surprise”
“I never imagined I’d be camping for my 50th but this is 10 Star camping at the very least. We had a really excellent time & could have stayed on another week.“
“From start to finish this was an amazing experience. Can’t fault any aspect of the trip except the wind in the Scottish Highlands! Our Land rover was awesome. Such a cool ride and packed with everything we could possibly need. Even a hot-water bottle. We didn’t manage the whole of the NC500 and will definitely be back to do the rest. An incredible place with the best scenery we have ever seen.“
