Travel the breadth of the UK on this five-day coast to coast adventure that is probably THE most challenging trip that we run. You'll get to see the best of the moors, dales, Westmorland and the lakes and really put your 4x4 through its paces, all under our expert guidance.
For those who can only make it for the weekend, we do offer a two-day option so you can join us for the Saturday and Sunday in the Lake District.
This is a route of contrasts. The Yorkshire Moors offer a wild landscape - from wide vistas of open countryside to a rolling high plateau of heather and open moor. On the other hand, the Yorkshire Dales offer picture-book views of high fells, barns and sheep grazing before we head onto the higher, steeper terrain and pass by waterfalls, lakes and even roman remains.
Crossing into the Lake District the landscape changes again with high, craggy peaks which descend into steep-sided valleys; here we will experience some of the most technical terrain you can find in the UK.
We start at Boggle Hole with a chance to dip your tyres in the North sea. From here we go via the picturesque village of Grosmont, well known for its beautiful steam trains and station and over the stunning North Yorkshire Moors down rocky tracks and through rivers, including the famous lane, Rudland Rigg.
Day two continues the journey west across the Yorkshire Dales, beginning in Leyburn we will travel through the rivers and washouts in this magnificent national park area.
Day three is our Westmorland route which begins in Hawes and allows us to continue heading towards the Lake District through the lower reaches of the Dales and around the Howgill Fells.
Our last two days are spent in the Lake District which is by far the most technical and challenging route in the North of England - you'll spend an intense two days tackling rock crawls and boulders, tricky descents and corners, all with the backdrop of spectacular views over the national park before finishing with wet tyres in the Irish Sea at Seascale. For those joining us just for the weekend, we meet on Saturday morning and the trip usually finishes on Sunday at 4pm, but of course you can leave at anytime!
“Such a well organised and professional team. As I said a few times: 'Trust in Libby’, and you’ll get through areas you never thought possible. We’ll certainly be joining more Ardent Off Road adventures and would recommend to anyone. Thanks for keeping the car safe Libby!”
At any time of year the Moors, Dales and Lakes can be bathed in glorious sunshine or be lashed by the wind, rain and sometimes snow, so be prepared for all seasons!
Terrain varies from wet moorland tracks to the hard rocks of the Lake District. Some tracks are among the most technical on any of our adventures, however, under our expert guidance both novices and experienced drivers will have the best day out without damage to themselves or their vehicle.
Low-box, basic underbody protection and recovery points along with all terrain tyres. While not essential, we do advise having your vehicle serviced before the adventure.
