Kielder 4×4 Safari

A day of guided trail blazing in the heart of Kielder and Wark Forests. you will get to drive a variety of tracks throughout the heart of the forest well away from the road and other forest users.


The Kielder 4×4 Safari takes a variety of routes depending on weather, harvesting and conservation issues. We vary the route to ensure the long term sustainability of the event.


All vehicles that take part in the Kielder 4×4 Safari events must be roadworthy. Every driver must present upon request their certificate of insurance and driver’s license together with their MoT certificate if applicable. All vehicles must hold current vehicle excise duty.

All vehicles will be subject to scrutiny. Defects or modifications that may compromise the safety of the vehicle, its occupants or members of the public will not be allowed to take part. Similarly, any vehicle showing signs of oil or other fluid leaks will not be allowed to take part.

Conventional 4×4 type vehicles will be able to accomplish the majority of the route. Before undertaking any section drivers must assess both the capabilities of their vehicle and driving ability. A conventional 4×4 can be regarded as a vehicle with good ground clearance, four wheel drive and a centre locking differential or equivalent drive system.


The Kielder 4×4 Safari proceeds go to Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team. Registered Charity 511313.
