Just back from a recce trip to Portugal. Rained almost every day and I think we caught the back end of Storm Emma, but made for some great offroading. Fantastic county with fantastic offroad tracks. very varied with great access to the mountains and forests. Very few restrictions on where you can drive meaning lots of flexibility with route finding etc.
Here are a few action videos from the trip. Highlight was probably sand tracks in the forest as it was very reminiscent of the famous Fraser Island in Australia
Come and see us at the Adventure Overland Show

OMG Awesome Mercedes G- 500 4x4 squared in action in Wales. Never taken out anything like this before. Factory built Merc G wagon on Portal Axles. Baby brother of the giant 6 weeler.
Great weekends laning in the Peak District. First time we have run a trip here. We will be back for sure next year. The laning is on the gentle side especially in the dry conditions in July, but the scenery throughout the Derbyshire Dales is stunning.
Finally got around to editing the Video from mid wales. Great trip saw us doing Strata Florida backwards for a change. This mean going down the bomb hole rather than up it. Also included Brechfa forest which is probably my favorite single day of laning and some fun in the Fords around Builth Wells
Awesome 4 day Series trip Coast to Coast across the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Moors,Ravenglass to Whitby. Not had so much fun in a long time. Very impressed to see just how very capable these vehicles still are, even by modern standards. These vehicles are so much fun to drive, Forget the heavy steering and the bumpy ride. This Classic trip provided an ear to ear grin for all 4 days.
Photos from The Ridgeway and Marlborough Downs Trip. Very Very dry. Not a puddle in sight. Never seen it so dry; even when I have driven the route in August. Fantastic spring scenery and views, through the heart of Southern England
New Classic 4x4 Tours service launched by 4x4 Adventure Tours
Classic 4x4 Tours are designed specifically for the owners of Series Land Rovers and Classic Range Rovers. The tours cover many of the same classic routes we use on our regular tours but at a steadier more relaxed pace, avoiding the more extreme sections and with time to discuss the pleasures and pitfalls of driving an old Land Rover.
Classic 4x4 Tours destinations include Salisbury Plain, Cotswolds, Wales, The Lake District and Yorkshire
Our tours are lead using our 1960 Series II 109. Probably the most reliable vehicle we own. Having originally started our 4x4 life rebuilding "Russell", then driving it from Bristol to Cape Town (and rebuilding it again), we simply wanted the excuse to use it more often. It spends far too much time sat at home, while we are away on adventures in the Discovery.
Come and join us for simple and cost effective adventure in your Classic 4x4.
4x4 Adventure Tours have been running 4x4 guided tours both in the UK and aboard for a number of years now, taking customers on adventurous 4x4 tours. We are an expert and professional tour guide company. We provide expert guiding and expert mechanical knowledge to ensure you get the most from your trip.
Interesting comparison of 2 Discovery 2's on the same hill in Devon. Same vehicles, neither has Centre Diff lock fitted just TC, ones on AT tyres, one on Mud tyres, one on standard suspension, one on a 4 inch lift, and different drivers....
And just to show how good the Discovery's are, then here is a fairly standard Defender 90 on the same section...
Great trip in North Devon on a partial new route. As usually tight and scratchy in places but that's part of what makes Devon fum. Very dry in any places, despite what you might see in the photos. A bit more water in the rivers would have made the many ford crossings a bit more interesting. Also the second day needs a but more finessing. A bit to much tarmac between some of the lanes - oh well - another excuse for a recce!!!
