Frequently asked questions
Why use a guided tour?
Guided tours offer a great way of accessing the myriad of green lanes that exist in England and Wales. Our tours allow you to access to our research and the knowledge and experience of our guides. This ensures that you drive on the best lanes an area has to offer and that the routes taken are legal, suitable for your vehicle and sustainable.
Vehicles in the countryside can be an emotive issue and it is imperative that greenlaning is undertaken in a responsible manner. Roam Free Adventures adheres to the GLASS Greenlane Code of Conduct and the Countryside code. All routes are pre-driven and checked for legal vehicular rights with no traffic regulation orders in place before each tour. Our guide vehicles are fully equipped with recovery equipment, first aid essentials and we provide walkie talkies for each vehicle in the tour.
Taking a tour with Roam Free Adventures offers you an enjoyable, safe and hassle free way to enjoy the countryside with your 4×4.
Can I go on my own?
Yes. However it is recommended not to venture out in a single vehicle. For safety and security a minimum of 2 vehicles is recommended. Roam Free Adventures offers you a great way to travel with like minded enthusiasts as part of a small group, never more than 6 including the guide when in the UK and no more than 8 when overseas.
Is my vehicle suitable?
Roam Free Adventures are open to all makes of 4×4 vehicle. We strongly advise a minimum of All Terrain (A/T) tyres. Any additional requirements will be included in the tour notes.
Will my vehicle get damaged?
With careful route selection and careful driving it is highly unlikely your vehicle will sustain any damage, however due to the nature of the activity and the variations in driving styles this can never be fully guaranteed.
The most likely for concern is light scuffing from overgrown vegetation. If your paintwork is particularly shiny – as with a new vehicle – then please enquire first as some routes are more suitable than others.
Can I bring my children or dogs?
Yes! Children are very welcome. These tours are a great way for children to experience the countryside, although it can be a long day, so we would suggest they have something to keep them entertained in the back of the car.
Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept under suitable control at all times, especially near livestock. Don’t forget a drink and pick-up bags.
Will the trip run in bad weather?
All trips will run in all but the most extreme weather or when travelling is not advised by a govening body
What do I need to bring?
Lunch and refreshments/flask, spare clothes and waterproofs, phone, full tank of fuel and your camera.
We bring any recovery equipment that may be needed (and we will only use our own) and any communication equipment that may be requrired. We also carry general first aid kits, but please bring any specialist first aid equipment or medication that you need
