Idaho Overland Adventures provided not only a peace of mind for safety they provided everything we needed to be successful on our 11 day trip. The vehicle is kitted out with almost every need thought through. It is really a plug and play package. We didn’t have one single issue. And we already booked our next trip for 2023 to explore more of the backcountry of Idaho. If you are thinking about it, just do it. It is totally worth it.

I cannot recommend IOA enough! Renting one of their rigs to explore and camp in the backcountry is the best way to experience Idaho!

I had a great time doing some crisp, fall camping up in the Sawtooths. I loved this vehicle and felt safe driving it, especially with the Garmin navigation system. The rooftop tent is a really cool experience… Joe and Brianne were so lovely to work with, and showed me everything I needed to know before setting out on my adventure. I felt fully equipped and confident with the support of Joe and Brianne. They genuinely cared about my safety and I knew I could contact them if I ever needed assistance. Thank you for making this trip possible for me, Idaho Overland Adventures!

TN Guys part II

Well this is our second review, we loved the Idaho Overland Adventure folks so much we had to return for a second trip before we needed snow shoes. This trip we mounted up good Ole’ Shirley again (The 4-runner) and headed to parts west and north of Boise. Our route included Silver city – Idaho Hotel, Alvord Desert, Steens Mountains, John Day, Sumpter, Pendelton, Walla Walla, Clarkston & Lewiston and back down through Hells Canyon and sights in-between. Our first trip hit temps in the upper 90’s while this trip saw lows in the teens. Regardless of the weather, the gear provided kept us comfortable. Which is great knowing that you can pack minimally and not have to worry. Fantastic trip again and we logged about 1,200 miles this time.

We are already looking forward to visiting again next summer for two more trips to complete our journey north and south of Boise. Excited to get back in the saddle with Shirley!!! As can be expected, great service and quality gear provided again by Brianne and Joe. We highly recommend checking them out regardless of you camping skill level. There is an Idaho Overland Adventure waiting for you!

I recently rented ‘Ruby’ for a two week road trip around the SE corner of Oregon. My plans included a combination of camping as well as some very basic and rustic lodging. The rig and set up were perfect for my needs, giving me the flexibility to have food, water, and lodging with me at all times, wherever I might end up for the night. I am older and retired, and found great confidence in renting from an organization run by a former commercial airlines pilot; Joe seems to be super organized and very serious about safety and maintenance. This gave me much comfort during my travels; the rig was very dependable and convenient. Even if I was in a motel for the night, I still ended up using the galley for meals and other needs. I highly recommend Idaho Overland Adventures, and Joe and Brianne!

Idaho is unbelievable, and to truly experience the scenery and the overwhelming beauty I would recommend Idaho Overland Adventures. My wife and I have camping and backpacking experince and planned on outdoor sports in the sawtooth mountains. Anything we needed they had already thought of. Booking was easy, the gear is rock solid (we slept through several thunderstorms and very high winds) the 4runner is awesome. Make sure to leave about a half hour at drop off and pick up for the orientation. You will get compliments on the rig, the layout makes sense and is well organized. When everything is equipped properly trips can go smoothly and without worry and ours did. Idaho is not meant to be experienced by a hotel or a busy campground. Use the GPS that is provided to you, punch up a free spot off of a dirt road, get the tires dirty and enjoy!

What a wonderful husband wife duo.  They have created amazing overland vehicles that have all your camping needs.  From the tent, sleeping bag, fridge, coffee press, solar panel or charging, chairs, and much much more.  We used their vehicle to travel the Sawtooth Mountain Range.  The vehicle we rented had an amazing GPS that got us to every destination with ease and was super comfortable to ride in.  I would not hesitate to rent from this company again.

We had an amazing time! Whatever level of camping you are doing, it was so nice to have all of your gear with you and easily accessible. I never stressed about forgetting anything as we went out exploring. It just freed up time to go out, have fun, and in our case film and photograph the beautiful Stanley area. The IOA crew gave me a thorough run through of all the vehicles features and I felt very prepared to get out there! Very excited to take it out again soon!

I haven’t been camping since 2016 or so.  I was so excited to go with my three closest friends.  I was skeptical at first because Bri kept telling us “just” clothes and food.  Of course I over-packed!  These rentals truly have it all. The set was easy and we slept 4women in one tent.  I felt safe being off the ground too.  One of the best things was that the tent completely unzips and in the morning I was handed my coffee while I sat in bed visiting with the girls making breakfast.  I was definitely a hassle free camping trip.  Also, this is great for a family with kiddos.  Easy set up! Best camping trip I’ve had especially not having camped in years.  Surely a new way of camping.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 9-day excursion in late September, a 1,400-mile loop across the rugged and beautiful terrain of the Tri-State region (eastern Idaho, northwestern Wyoming, and southwestern Montana). We encountered dusty high desert, rolling green farmland, deep basalt canyons, Snake River meanders, snowy mountain passes, mirror calm lakes, brilliant yellow aspen, autumnal Teton sunsets, campfires, Milky Way night skies, frost-covered mornings, boiling pools of brilliant hues, stoic elk and bison, trout streams, high plains ranches, bumpy dirt roads, pine-covered ridges, and burnt orange Sawtooth sunrises; it was incredible. As for Idaho Overland Adventures, Joe and Brianne have structured this company to provide clients with safe access to a true outdoor experience and their professionalism really shows. The 4Runner is very well apportioned with all essential systems (electrical, water, shelter and cooking) in a logical layout that is thoughtfully incorporated into the vehicle. It really functions as a superb overlander and nothing has been overlooked. In-vehicle satellite communication links you with IOA home base, giving you the peace of mind of knowing that someone can be reached if something unexpected should arise. At check-in Joe leaves nothing to chance and provides a thorough walk-through of all aspects of the vehicle and onboard equipment. The vehicles are meticulously maintained and even include extra nice-to-have camp items (shovel, saw, fire-starters, headlamp, lantern) so you don’t have to bring your own… In short, IOA is an excellent little company run by two wonderful people. We’ll be back for sure.

Idaho Overland Adventures’ Wagon!  We actually brought more than we needed because they literally provided for all of our needs, other than clothes and food obviously.  We had no issues setting up or taking down. Everything was easy to use. Having a power source while camping was super convenient as well since I am a nursing mom and I needed to pump. It was also good for charging our phones.  Overall I give them a 10 out of 10!

Wow trip of a lifetime….best trip\experience I’ve ever had. I am normally not a review writer…just check the stars and call it good. However, after such a great experience I felt inclined to put down a few words. The folks at Idaho Overland Adventures are exceptional with both service and quality of product. We did the 4runner for 5 days at end of July and will definitely be returning for a second trip! (Boise NF, Sawtooth NF, Salmon-Challis NF, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Bridger NF, and probably a couple more I forgot). We were really impressed with the quality of gear provided by the outfitters….everything was quality from the refrigerator that kept everything at 31F regardless of the outside temperature, all the way down to the eating utensils that were made of quality stainless. It was gear you would buy for your personal long term camping – nothing you would purchase from a chain store…It was also a very economical option especially when you compare it to the cost of a combined car and hotel rental…Issues and recommendations???….well we really didn’t have any other than the fact that we probably over packed since this was our first time on such an adventure. Everything we found was pretty straightforward and you can always communicate with the outfitter throughout the length of your trip via the Garmin or cell (when you have cell service) if you have any questions. All-in-all will definitely be returning, can’t say enough about how nice the operators of the outfit are and how much we enjoyed the whole experience. They are also military appreciative so be sure and mention that if you fall into that category. I will definitely be recommending them to all my friends and family. Thanks again to Joe and Brianne for a awesome experience!!!!!

Having a worry free camping trip with my besties was the greatest camping experience I’ve had!! Idaho Overland Adventures has literally everything. Pillows, sleeping bags, pop-up and “potty”, cooler built in with plenty of storage!!!  Not to mention you can rent their 4Runner if you don’t have a truck to tow the trailer.  So many options….I really can’t say enough about this company!  Fantastic people, clean and sanitized equipment.  Just AWESOME!  DO IT, YOU WON’T REGRET IT.
