My Favorite Overland YouTube Channels

Last year, at the beginning of the pandemic when we were all stuck at home, I bing-watched so many overland/vehicle-based travel shows on YouTube that I want to share my favorites with you as it might be too warm to go outside this week! The following channels are not ordered by preference, they are all equally inspiring in their own way.

Live Work Wander

Back in 2018, I found out about their channel when I was trying to find the perfect vehicle to travel from my parents in France to Kuan’s parents in China. The reality is that we purchased their yellow troopy in 2019 hoping to start traveling across borders with it… But the rest is a story for another day!

If you like beautiful photography & storytelling, Land Cruisers and quirky sense of humor, this channel is for you! I am looking forward to seeing where their beautiful Land Cruiser is going to take them next.

I had the chance to meet Chris in Whitefish, MT last summer and he seems to be a very down-to-earth and kind person. I hope we will cross path again!

Grizzly and Bear Overland

I have also been following @grizzlynbear.overland for quite a while and it’s interesting to see how their travel lifestyle evolved as they go and grow. Covid did not stop them and they continued travelling across Japan for almost a year before spending the last couple of months in Taiwan which looked fantastic to explore but also very socially exhausting!

Les Artisans de demain

I loved their series in Iran and I am really looking forward to travelling there one day. Attention, this channel is in French!
