Land Rover Defender Summer Driving
12th May 2016
There is something very infectious about getting out of bed just before sunrise, the sun delicately rising from below the horizon, its glow reflected all around you, nature at its best.
There is however, one predicament, just where do you point your Defender?
Allow the Chelsea Truck Company to recommend some of the best places to take your Defender Wide Track.
The Lake District
Without a doubt the lakes is ideal for off-roaders, thanks to an array of valleys and woodland.
A visit to the Lake District would not be complete without a visit to our friends at Kankku, who offer a journey around beaten track in the Lake District, for complete beginners to experienced 4x4 drivers.
Where better to take your Defender Wide Track than the grandeur of the astonishing landscape of the Lake District.
Welcome to quintessential Yorkshire, its meandering, hilly route that takes you over gushing rivers via quaint, ancient bridges and through a succession of intriguingly named villages, such as Burnt Yates and Summerbridge.
Whisk past lush parkland, acres of waterfalls, lakes and blooms, groomed to perfection in the Yorkshire Dales, within the comfort of the Chelsea Truck Defender Wide Track.
Covering the likes of Wiltshire, Gloucester and Oxford (5 counties in total), the Cotswolds is a hub of unadulterated natural beauty.
With over 800 square miles to explore, the Defender is not only ideal for the summer, but also for winter and spring. However, with the long drawn out Summer evenings, we suggest you make the most of it!
Before you even point your Defender towards Cornwall, you will dream of driving towards the untarnished coastlines.
Indeed, Cornwall is a haven for surfers who flock towards the beaches all year round, and adventure seekers who live for the thrill and look forward to tackling the dunes and forests within the vicinity.
However, if this does not tickle your fancy, you could always drive your Defender towards the cliffs and crawl down the rock pools and go swimming instead.
