Sometimes in business, you get pinch-yourself moments.

Being asked by Travel Alberta to participate in one of their Wild Side Commercials was definitely one of them. Travel Alberta is an incredible organization that does the meaningful work of promoting our beautiful province. As a company that's equally committed to honouring the magnificence of Alberta's landscapes, we couldn't have been more excited, and grateful, to be a part of this epic video.

Yama Van, “Basecamp '' fittingly selected for this video, is the ultimate off-grid, off-road travel buddy for adventuring year-round in Canada (and beyond!). Like all Yama Van’s, its design aims to embody the spirit of the wild and untamed Alberta, offering a bridge between the comforts of home and the rawness of nature.

This video provides a glimpse into the journey that Yama Van’s provide, from the winding roads of the city to the heart of Alberta’s breathtaking wild terrains. They are your trusty sidekick, whether you are embarking on a backcountry skiing adventure or a serene lake-side camping trip.

We are deeply grateful to Travel Alberta for this incredible opportunity and to our wonderfully supportive client for allowing us to use his van and for showing up to this 5:00am shoot without hesitation. The Wild Side Commercial was indeed a special moment for us at Yama but most importantly, it’s a symbol of our commitment to providing you with the finest adventure vehicles, so you can venture into the wild side with confidence.
