Combined Courses

4x4 Voyager

Our 4x4 Voyager course is designed to give you the confidence and ability to plan and tackle your off road adventures.

With an emphasis on fun and adventure, throughout this one day course our instructors will introduce you to the practical wilderness skills required to survive, based around the four principles of survival- fire, food, shelter and water- with an emphasis on using your vehicle as your survival resource.

On this course you also benefit from one to one instruction with our Landrover trained instructor on off road driving techniques. Here you will get behind the wheel of one of our Landrover 110's on the purpose built 4x4 off road driving track.

The track incorporates ascents, descents, side slopes, water and ruts. With our expert instructors you will be guided through every aspect of manoeuvring, approach, engagement and extraction.
