Kielder 4×4 Safari February 2013 Newsletter
In support of Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team
The first Kielder 4×4 Safari of 2013 took place back on the 20th of January in a very cold and snowy Kielder Forest in Northumberland. With the Dukes Pantry closed for refurbishment we met for breakfast and signing on at The Boe Rigg just outside Bellingham. Once everybody was fed and the briefing had taken place we headed off into the forest, with about a dozen cars in the convoy, because the Safari has access to tracks not normally available to the public we were literally creating our own tracks in the virgin snow! At times Ian in the lead car had difficulty knowing where the track was so we had to proceed with caution but luckily we made it through the day without incident.
Talking to some of the supporters afterwards it would seem that a good day was had by all and they had really enjoyed driving off-road in the snow.
If this sounds like something you would like to experience then why not head over to our bookings page and sign up for the next Safari on the 16th February 2013 whilst there are still places available.
A family oriented event where you will spend time with our guides driving through Kielder and Wark Forests. In the comfort of your own vehicle, you will get to drive a variety of tracks and trails through the heart of the forest, not normally accessible to the public.
The event is suitable for all makes of 4×4 and is intended to be as none damaging as possible, so suitable for new and older cars alike.
Bring the family, pack your picnic and come and join us.
For those with dogs, they are welcome too!
