Why should you take this course
Learn about basic trail driving planning.
Want to enjoy some stunning trails that you may not have had the experience or knowledge to negotiate before.
Have a 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicle and want to experience its potential capabilities.
Want to expand upon your trail experience under professional guidance.
Trail driving is both fun, adventurous and exciting and can lead you to some amazing back country terrain. Trail types vary hugely as does different styles of off road driving. We at Overlanding BC follow an overland expedition style of driving ethos where the objectives may vary, but the technique to get there is consistent. We follow the the Tread Lightly ethos, believe in mechanical sympathy and that your vehicle is essentially your life line. We want to impart skills and knowledge that will help you enjoy your trails but bring your vehicle back with zero or negligible damage and with no environmental impact.
Our advanced trail drive will teach you some basic trail ethics and will allow you to experience some fun trails whilst helping you discover the potential of your vehicle and a few good driving techniques on more challenging trails where traction may be limited or larger more technical objects may be encountered.
