Owned and operated by Russ Dykes, Ardventures was formed in August 2019. Russ has decades of experience in the 4×4 industry and is a fully qualified Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and British Off-Road Driving Association (BORDA) instructor, as well as being a qualified First Aider.

Ardventures is a 4×4 training and tour business, offering professional and personal 4×4 training, and overseas and domestic 4×4 tours. With a dedicated 4×4 training site at Askham Bryan College near York, we offer a variety of terrains on which we provide 4×4 driver and winch training. We also travel nationwide to deliver professional training to customers at their own sites and are proud to be an approved training provider to Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW).

We work with the likes of Nissan UK and Jeep UK when launching their products to the UK market, providing planned routes to demonstrate the capability of their vehicles to the media under the supervision of experienced guides. Occasionally, we are provided with new products to review by manufacturers, such as the Jeep Renegade 4xe and Jeep Wrangler JL.

We take great pride in the services we offer, from planning to execution to ensure everything goes without issue and customers enjoy their experience with Ardventures. Your satisfaction, enjoyment and safety is our top priority.

If you’d like to know more, we’d love to hear from you.
