Russ Dykes

Russ is the co-founder of Ardent Adventures with Libby his daughter. He has spent a great deal of his life driving, rallying, off-roading and working in the 4×4 industry, having owned and run a Land Rover Specialists/ Ssangyong/ Izuzu and Polaris garage. Plus having run several Land Rover main dealerships prior to that.

Having always had a burning desire to travel, which is funny for someone who only lives a mile from where he was born. Russ now enjoys leading groups for fantastic holidays in Morocco, the Alps, Portugal and the Pyrenees and when not planning the tours can be found most weekends out and about leading one of our many UK tours.

When not travelling, Russ is helping Libby with their 4×4 training business which is based at Askham Byran College near York.

Russ’s adventures are frequently featured in Land Rover Monthly, 4×4 magazine, The Landy and Yorkshire Post and he is also a supporter of GLASS and when possible tries to help out in the North Yorkshire area and with GLASS training courses.
