About Us

We pride ourselves on offering quality gear and exceptional trip consulting. Founded in 2017 by Ryan Matthes and Chris Jones with the intent of offering high quality instruction and real world application to all experience levels in an effort to grow the ranks of individuals who no longer dream of adventure but live it. The need to offer the same high quality gear we use on our trips became apparent, so Backroad Ventures has expanded with the addition of Danan Coleman of Adventure With Danan and Sean Haney of Empire State Overland. We are proud to offer high quality gear along with our epic trips and exceptional consulting services.

Let us make your dream your next adventure!
