14 Snowdonia Adventure Drive
We at the Landcraft would like to invite you bring your own vehicle and join us on one of our day long Snowdonia 4x4 Adventure Drives through the beautiful mountains and forests of North Wales. Usually starting in the Bala area, it will take you through stunning scenery with spectacular views along forest tracks and hillsides, all on private land, available only to Landcraft. These Drives will be open to any 4x4 Fully Legal Road Taxed Vehicle, (No quads, no vehicles on trailers). We recommend that you should have attended an off road driving course before taking part. You will need to use four wheel drive, but the tracks chosen will be suitable for all Land Rovers, and all other makes of 4x4s are welcome. There will be alternative routes in places to take into account the differing capabilities of the vehicles and skills of the drivers. Whilst these drives are suitable for all levels of experience, you should be familiar with your vehicle's controls. All drivers must hold a full driving license and insurance for the vehicle they are driving, and all occupants must be seated on a proper seat and wearing their seat belt, if fitted. They will start at around 9.30 a.m and run until approximately 4 p.m, so you will need lots of fuel and a packed lunch. Due to the size (5000 acres) and terrain it is not suitable for spectators who are not in a participating vehicle. Dogs must be under control at all times. You will be travelling with a group of like-minded 4 X 4 owners led by experienced marshals, and whilst this is not a training day, they will be able to give you advice should you require it. £60 on the day, £50 pre booked Landcraft 4x4 web site
