Land Rover will offer participants professional off-road instruction so that they'll become more confident behind the wheel of their LR3s, Range Rover Sports and Range Rovers. Those with more experience will be offered advanced off-road courses, while those just starting out will be able to learn the basics.

While the terrain at each location varies, all attendees will be taught proper off-road driving techniques such as ascents, descents, rock crawling, winching and vehicle recovery, plus they'll be instructed in the non-profit Tread Lightly program, which has become a global standard to promote environmental conscious behaviour among 4x4 enthusiasts.
