Overlanding is a form of self-reliant adventure travel that involves traveling in a modified vehicle, typically a 4-wheel drive SUV or truck, to remote destinations. It emphasizes independence, sustainability, and immersion in the natural environment. Overlanders typically carry their own camping gear, food, and supplies, and may travel for several weeks or months at a time. The goal of overlanding is to explore and experience new landscapes, cultures, and ways of life, often on less-traveled roads and trails.
