Canada off road adventures are enjoyed in the rural and wilderness sections of the country on ATVs, dirt bikes, dune buggies and 4x4 vehicles.
The peak time for off roading is during the late spring, summer and early fall seasons. Most Canada off roading adventures follow a vast network of gravel roads and spur roads deep into the wilderness backcountry.
Many of these gravel roads are deactivated logging and mining roads - some are still active. So... always keep an eye out for large logging and mining trucks.
There are plenty of opportunities for self guided off roading in Canada. All riders who embark on a self guided trip into the wilderness should have a good map, gps, rain gear and common sense.
Many Canada off road tours provide experienced and knowledgeable guides, reliable equipment, riding lessons and meals. Some even provide wilderness backcountry accommodations. There are also a few off road adventure companies which provide multi day tours with wilderness camping
