Summer is officially here, and with the good weather comes the appetite to explore one of the most beautiful regions in the world: our own backyard.
However, many urban dwellers experience barriers when attempting to access the true outdoors – either not having a vehicle (or a capable one), not having the camping gear, or not having the time or knowledge to get off the beaten track.
On June 5, Hastings Overland is changing all of that as it launches Vancouver’s first ever overland experience. The overland rental company offers the opportunity to go beyond the crowded hiking and camping spots near the city by providing a capable vehicle, the necessary camping gear, and the knowledge to find and access these areas.
And these aren’t your ordinary road trip vehicles…
They’re custom-made, four-door Jeep Wranglers that come fully equipped with rooftop tents, tailgate kitchens, and even backroad trip plans. So yeah, you could say taking a road trip will be a lot easier as you navigate past the crowds towards the hidden gems in BC, Washington and beyond.
And when it comes to camping, you don’t need to spend time checking the ground for stones and rubble because you won’t have to pitch your tent there. Instead, you’ll rise above the standard camping routine and sleep peacefully on top of the Jeep in a rooftop tent.
Hastings Overland’s vehicle features are easy to use and contain literally everything you need for a world-class adventure, without the stress. Cooler, stove, propane, cookery, camp chairs, table – you name it, they’ve got it.
And, it gets better. Hastings Overland even designs the perfect trip for you, with multiple itinerary options to help you #gofurther.
So, whether you’re a novice or experienced camper, the destination suggestions help you get off the beaten track and into lesser known territory – away from hoards of tourists fighting for that one spot in the campground and from the light pollution hindering the night sky.
To celebrate the launch of Hastings Overland, they’re is giving one lucky Daily Hive reader the chance to win a two-night trip in a Hastings Overland Jeep.
