4x4 Voyager

Our 4x4 Voyager course is designed to give you the confidence and ability to plan and tackle your off road adventures.

With an emphasis on fun and adventure, throughout this one-day course our instructors will introduce you to practical wilderness skills required to survive, based around the four principles of survival- fire, food, shelter and water- with an emphasis on using your vehicle as your survival resource.

On this course you also benefit from one to one instruction with a Landrover trained instructor on off road driving techniques. Here you will get behind the wheel of a Landrover 110’s on the purpose built 4x4 off road driving track.

 This track incorporates ascents, descents, slide slopes, water and ruts. With our expert instructors you will be guided through every aspect of manoeuvring, approach, engagement and extraction.

 To ensure you come away from the course prepared for everything, we also cover navigation techniques, from map/compass/GPS to natural navigation!

Each of these sessions involve you getting practical, hands on experience, and by prior arrangement you may also train in your own vehicle.

Skills covered:
Fire- Sources of fire: car batteries, torch batteries, headlamp, potassium permanganate, tinder, kindling, building and establishing your fire
Food- Game preparation, traps and snares
Water- Sourcing, collecting, filtering and purifying your water
Shelter- Use of your vehicle, bashas, campsite location, camp craft, building your camp
Survival Plan- Priorities: Protection, Provisions, Position
Off Road Driving- Ascents, descents, slides, water, ruts
Navigation- Introduction to map and compass, direction finding, pacing, relocation, distance, back bearings
Natural navigation, solar navigation, stars, moon, natural indicators, shadow stick

This course is set within the National Forest, on farmland with a purpose built 4x4 off road driving course.
