Pangaea Expeditions was founded by Nathan Hindman in 2001 with a goal to educate and inspire adventurers. We specialize in vehicle dependent expeditions and overland adventure travel.

Our name, Pangaea, comes from the ancient Greek words “pan” and “gaea,” literally translating as “all earth”. Scientists theorize that billions of years ago, before the tectonic plates shifted into their current continental form, there existed a super-continent consisting of all the known land masses. This super-continent is named “Pangaea.”

At the time of our founding, there were no North American companies that specialized in overland expedition preparation, planning and logistics.


Pangaea Expeditions has evolved in the last twenty years, providing services from outfitting complete vehicles to leading all-inclusive self-drive safaris across the Rocky Mountains and the deserts of the Western United States.

Our international expedition destinations have ranged from the jungles of Central America’s Mundo Maya, to the savannahs of southern Africa.

While Pangaea Expeditions is generally brand agnostic, we’ve focused on using Land Rovers as our primary vehicles for expedition and four-wheeling.
