4x4 Safari

An off road adventure driving the tracks and trails of Kielder Forest.

A day of guided trail blazing in the heart of Kielder and Wark Forests. You will get to drive a variety of tracks throughout the heart of the forest well away from the road and other forest users.

For the more adventurous there may be the opportunity to pitch your driving skills and vehicle against a disused quarry (dependent on the time of year and other forest activities).

Organised by Grand Tour of Northumberland, an organisation that raises funds for Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team. Registered Charity 511313.
