Welcome to Off Track Travel

We are Gemma and JR, a British/Canadian couple who live to explore beyond the beaten path and love helping others to do the same.

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 our well-worn hiking boots. Sounds like your cup of tea? We’re glad to have you here!
