If you’re wanting to explore the great outdoors and discover the best destinations beyond the beaten path, you’re in the right place!

Off Track Travel is an adventure travel blog written by Jean Robert and Gemma, a Canadian/British couple currently based in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Over the last few years, we have paddled, hiked and driven thousands of kilometres in the backcountry of North America and Europe. 

We like road trips, adventure, nature and solitude. Our preferred method of travel is by kayak, foot or backroads (in our DIY converted van). We spend most of our time off the beaten track, avoiding crowds and appreciating the natural world. Most of all, we love sharing these experiences to inspire and help others to do the same.

Does it sound like we have something in common? If so, I think you’ll find lots to enjoy reading here.
