Meet Your Guides from
Back Road Van Adventures

BENJAMIN BORGENS

Benjamin Co-founded Back Road Van Adventures because of his love for the outdoors and enjoys sharing it to others to pass down in generations. Benjamin has been off-roading and camping for over 20 years and has the knowledge and wisdom to create these routes and trips to instill safety for the environment and its guests. Benjamin enjoys mapping these routes from spending thousands of hours staring at the computer using different mapping software, having paper maps spread out across the floor and actually going to explore these routes to see if they are even possible. He puts Tread Lightly practices in to every one of his routes and encourages everyone else to practice them as well.

CRAIG ARANT

Co-Founder Craig Arant discovered a deep love and enthusiasm for off roading and teaching/helping people since his involvement with a Sheriffs department search and rescue team at the age of 14. Once he was 16, his Dad trusted him with enough with his f-250 4√ó4 to drive on searches, and from then on has always been seeking Off-Road adventures. In the almost 40 years since then, Craig has traveled the world meeting people in all walks of life and and shared his love of the outdoors and exploration. We like to say Craig has been ‚Äúoverlanding‚ÄĚ since before there was a catchy name for it, his inspiration, respect, and love of nature puts him in the perfect place to share with his enthusiasm with others.

CHEF LENA

Our gourmet Chef Lena and Sous Chef Cole prepare fresh meals daily, adding a gourmet touch to camp cooking. Guests can expect delicious breakfasts like French Toast with Sausage or Veggie scramble. Dinners feature a range of options, from Seared steak with whole-roasted sweet potatoes to Farro salad with Fennel and Apple. Lunches are served "Picnic Style" on the trail, offering premade sandwiches with chips, drinks, and fruit, along with condiments, veggies, and cheese for customization. Lena's culinary creations have turned many of our support crew into foodies, and you'll be raving about the meals every day.

3-Day Lost Coast Experience with Back Road Van Adventures

SCHEDULE

*Important note: Due to weather, wash outs, road closures, land slides, and all kinds of crazy unknown acts of Mother Nature, routes are subject to change. 

Day 1

DAY 1

STUNNING COASTAL VIEWS

Starting near Grants Pass OR, we will start our journey around 10am and make our way through the winding forest roads that have a wonderful combination of dirt and back road pavement. We will traverse the coastal mountain range and arrive at the amazing Oregon coastline in Gold Beach Or. At Gold Beach is when we start the journey North along the Oregon Coast. Stopping at a campground with stellar ocean views just North of Gold Beach dinner will be served around the time we get to camp so be ready for an amazing dinner prepared by our gourmet chef and time to let the stories around the campfire begin. The sunsets along the Oregon coast are nothing short of breathtaking. As the sun dips below the horizon, hues of orange, pink, and purple paint the sky, casting a warm glow over the vast expanse of the Pacific. Pull over at one of the many scenic viewpoints to witness this daily spectacle, where the sun bids adieu to the day, casting long shadows across the rocky shores.

DAY 2

SECRET BEACH SPOTS

Coffee will be ready by 7am and breakfast will be served by 8am. After breakfast we will pack it up and get ready for the adventures that await. Day 2 is packed with fun. Starting just outside of Gold Beach we will continue our drive along the Oregon coastline, taking back roads down to secret beach spots, into the forest and checking out amazing places along the way. You’ll encounter charming coastal towns, where artisan shops and seafood eateries beckon with the promise of local delights. Explore state parks and hiking trails that lead to hidden waterfalls, and breathe in the crisp, rejuvenating air that defines the Pacific Northwest. We will find camp near Newport. As we arrive, dinner will be on its way to being served and we will enjoy a wonderful night around the campfire eating dinner and telling stories of the fun adventures we all have been on.
Day 2
Day 3

DAY 3

TIRES MEET THE SAND

Coffee will be ready by 7am and breakfast will be served by 8am. After breakfast we will pack it up and get ready for a later departure. Today we are making the drive up from Newport and into Astoria. If you are a Goonies fan, be ready to see some familiar sights as we take a stop at Cannon Beach and continue up to Astoria. Culminating this coastal odyssey is the unique opportunity to drive on the beach. Find a designated stretch of coastline, let the tires of your vehicle meet the sand, and experience the exhilaration of a beachside drive. The rhythmic sound of waves accompanies your journey, and the vastness of the ocean unfolds before you as you navigate the open shoreline. We will be ending our day at Fort Stevens State Park out on the beaches of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean, we will snag a group photo, say our goodbyes and sadly go our separate ways.

 

 

TESTIMONIAL

"What an amazing trip" 

"A huge thank you to Craig, Benjamin and the support crew from BRVA!
I’ve always wanted to explore the Lost Coast and they really put a great trip together.
My fellow travelers were great company on the trail and around the campfire.
I look forward to the next trip with BRVA" - Thom

 

“I learned that I can trust the van with what I ask of it. It made it a little more capable because I am confident in it, I now know what I can do with this van because we just all did it together."  - Dave
