Story about 4x4 adventure rental company in Squamish, British Columbia

This is my story

Hi there

My name is Igor and I am the proud owner of Maple Overland.

Originally from The Netherlands, I moved to British Columbia in 2022 with my little family. 

Our first overlanding experience got us stocked right away on driving 4×4’s! We went to the French Alps and soon after on different road trips through Europe. Alaska and British Columbia followed. Our overlanding trip of 4 months in British Columbia and Yukon was definitely the icing on the cake. All these trips made me want to share this awesome feeling you get when enjoying the real backroads and camp beside some random Canadian lake or creek; an adventures experience that’s not offered by many travel agencies. At some point during one of our road trips, the idea about starting my own 4×4 adventure company was born. Maple Overland purely sprouted from our love for traveling and camping in remote areas, and the experiences that came along.

“Overlanding is rad because it offers you the freedom to explore remote, untouched places at your own pace. Disconnect from the daily rush, learn new outdoorsy skills, and meet others who share your passion for outdoors and adventure.”

We want you to have a true 4×4 adventure, which consist of a blend of off-roading, backcountry camping and bringing everything you need either in or on top of your Jeep. All our Jeeps have high clearance and 4WD, so you can explore remote places which would be inaccessible when driving a large RV or camper van. 

You can travel to remote locations and be as self-sufficient as possible in terms of cooking, eating, and sleeping. Take a pause where and whenever you want, and move on when you’re ready to explore more. If you are an adventures person and love to explore, then overlanding is something that you definitely should try. Maple Overland provides you with a well-maintained vehicle, sends you off with the right outdoor gearing and we share our knowledge about the best places to visit and possible routes you could drive. So you can focus on exploring British Columbia’s great wilderness, wildlife and the many other interesting places our Province has to offer. 

We promise it’s an experience you will absolutely never forget. Can’t wait to meet you and share my passion!

Oh, and by the way, if I’m not exploring nature, I’m probably trail running somewhere in the mountains around Squamish.
