At the Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, North Carolina, USA
Sept 29 - Oct 1, 2017

The premier overlanding event in the world—no other event offers the scope of classes taught by the world's leading experts, alongside a professional-level trade show that brings together in one place all the camping and vehicle and motorcycle equipment and services you need to get outfitted and get going.

What is overlanding?

It’s not “wheeling” or about conquering obstacles with a vehicle or bike; it’s about using four-wheel- drives or adventure motorcycles to explore and camp—whether 100 miles or 10,000 miles from home, on pavement, backroads, or highly technical terrain. Overlanding is attracting adventurous young families, Baby Boomer retirees, and people of wide-ranging demographics.

What is Overland Expo?
