Coming soon – Join 4×4 Adventure Tours for a classic and challenging off-road Lake District expedition.

Based around Ambleside and Windemere, both the driving and the scenery are superb.

Our 4×4 Adventure Tours Lake District tour takes in not just the stunning scenery but there are plenty of interesting lanes with some technical challenges.

Route

Day 1 includes many of the lanes in the Langdales and Conistion area usually finishing in Grizedale Forest

Day 2 takes us north towards Keswick and  the old coach road, then loops through the eastern side of the lakes to take in lanes like the Breastleigh High Road and Stile End.

Vehicle suitability

This 4×4 Adventure Tour Lake District trip is suitable for all full-size 4x4s. The routes should be non-damaging as the routes are mostly open due to the mountain terrain. No specific experience is required although you should be comfortable driving your 4×4 and understand its operation.
