Who Are We?

We are Gemma and JR, a British/Canadian couple who live to explore beyond the beaten path by foot, paddle and vehicle and love helping others to do the same. Here you’ll find inspiration and advice about travelling ‘off track’ around Canada (our home base) as well as around the world.

Off Track Travel showcases underrated, out of the ordinary and lesser visited places, with an outdoor adventure focus. We travel in a converted van with two kayaks, a canoe and two pairs of well-worn hiking boots. Sounds like your cup of tea? We’re glad to have you here!
