What is overlanding?

Overlanding is when vehicle dependent travel meets the call of the wild. The main idea behind it is to equip your vehicle with everything you need to be self-reliant while exploring. The exploration can take you down dirt roads or across continents, and it has the power to change the way you think about travel.

Why should I join Overland Bound?

Overland Bound was created for every stage of the overland journey. You will find our global community is knowledgeable and helpful, and our members represent a wide range of skill level and experience. 

We combine this inclusivity and support by building social functionality into every feature we create for Overland Bound One. As a member, you benefit from the ability to connect with others locally in addition to mapping and navigation tools.

Is Overland Bound Membership worth it?

Off-road exploration and overland travel are more than just mapping. With an Overland Bound membership you get direct access to community knowledge and support along with mapping and navigation tools.

Do I need a specific type of vehicle to become a member?

No. It doesn’t matter what you drive. We are an activity focused organization vs a vehicle specific organization.  

It does, however, matter where you drive it, and that’s one of the reasons why we embed social functionality into all of our features. We make it easy to know before you go.

Is it OK if I’m a beginner and have never done this type of travel?

Everyone starts somewhere and everyone is welcome here. Many of our community members are in the beginning stages of their overland journey, and we’re here to help. We strive to create an inclusive environment and develop simple tools to help people get started – no matter their skill level or expertise.
