Details

Put your group together in a private team convoy and get everyone behind the wheel of a specially prepared 4x4 on a journey off the beaten track in the Lake District National Park.

The adventure can start from your hotel and is all about 'behind the wheel' action.

You drive the technical rough and rocky terrain and appreciate the spectacular Lakeland landscape of lakes and mountains.

A Kankku day is really special because it is a real live off road driving experience rather than driving on a contrived off road course. Driving off road with Kankku is like driving on a wild Safari, the purpose of which is to drive the technical rough and rocky terrain and to appreciate the spectacular Lakeland landscape of lakes and mountains.

We can start our off road journey right from your accommodation, collecting from the hotel reception. The routes are varied and you may find yourself navigating through forests, fording Lakeland streams, or carefully negotiating narrow mountain trails; whatever the terrain, there is always a great sense of adventure as you swap and change from driver to navigator and make your way through stunning Lake District hills and valleys.

We run our expeditions with specially prepared bright orange G4 Challenge Land Rover Defenders and Mitsubishi Shoguns. There is plenty of time to swap and change drivers and you will enjoy a great sense of camaraderie running in a convoy of off road vehicles and it is interesting to watch the other vehicles in your team as they travel the terrain.

The Expedition is our most popular trail in which you will be out for between 3 and 7 hours on a cross section of off road terrain. There is time to get intimate with your 4x4 and the landscape, to enjoy a break for a quick pub meal or a sandwich on top of one of the peaks, and then to hit the trail again and apply Kankku style "intelligent off road driving techniques" to find your off road limits.

Help and guidance is always on hand from the experienced Kankku team in order to keep you exploring and to deliver specialist knowledge; this is delivered in a relaxed format and accompanied by tales of local interest and legend. All of our team have experience of dealing with both complete newcomers to off road driving as well as drivers with more confidence and experience.
