Join 4×4 Adventure Tours for a two day off-road tour of South Devon lanes including Dartmoor and the South Hams on the weekend of 9 and 10 November 2019.

Route

Day One – Starting near Exeter this route works its way through the wooded hills on the east side of Dartmoor before climbing up to the classic open Dartmoor landscapes and rock tors. 

Day Two – The 4×4 Adventure Tours route then crosses to the west of Dartmoor and loops down towards the tidal food across the River Tavy near Plymouth (actually fresh water crossing at low tide) then on through the lanes of the South Ham towards Kingsbridge and Dartmouth.

The lanes vary from open moorland to classic Devon lanes bordered by beach hedges with some great views across southern Devon

Vehicle Suitability

As with much of Devon, it’s hard to avoid lanes without a few intruding hedgerows, although this route is better than some and suitable for all but the shiniest of vehicles. There are some tricky sections, but these are all passable with care in a standard 4×4.
