Podcast: Overlanding, when off-roading and camping meet


To discuss this activity, which fascinates many enthusiasts around the world and from all walks of life, Antoine Joubert and Louis-Philippe Dubé spoke with Patrick Trahan, organizer of the Salon de l'overland as part of the show Le Guide de l'auto on QUB Radio.

What is overlanding?

You could call overlanding an adventure trip made up of a mix of camping, off-road driving and remote exploration. It is practiced by car as well as on a motorcycle, but a truck equipped with a 4×4 system is preferable because the roads taken are not paved, and sometimes they are not even listed. Participants must love adventure, yes, but they must also have the desire to disconnect from routine and everyday life. 

Finally, you must have a resourceful character at all costs, because life beyond the beaten track always has many surprises in store for those who venture there…

Le Salon du Overland

Guest on the show, Patrick Trahan takes us on a tour of his adventurer past, but also invites us to a very special event he is organizing in the Notre-Dame-Du-Mont-Carmel region. This celebration of overlanding, now in its second edition, will take place on September 16, 17 and 18, 2022 on a huge field where enthusiasts of all calibers can participate in activities, clinics and conferences addressing various facets of the sport.
