The Coniston Off-Road Centre, Skipton

Our off-roading experiences

About us.

We're proud to offer over three and a half miles of purpose-built, off-road tracks. Whether you're joining us for one of our off-road experiences, or undertaking off-highway driver training, you can rest-assured you will enjoy some of Britain's best off-road tracks.

The course

Hit the road.

Our course begins with Zone One, a versatile driver training area that features short, steep inclines and tricky rock crawls, designed to help you get used to the way the vehicle moves and reacts to the track.

The centrepiece of Zone Two was designed and built by Land Rover and features challenges that promise to test the limits of the most hardy vehicle. Here you will face deep water, steep camber slopes, tall ruts, and even a flight of concrete steps.

The vehicles

Take the wheel.

We are proud to offer a selection of vehicles that are designed to conquer the challenges that you will encounter on the course. Our fleet includes the Land Rover Discovery 5, Land Rover Defender 10, Land Rover Defender 90, Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian, Isuzu D-Max Yukon, and John Deere Gator. Whatever the terrain, we've got a vehicle to overcome it.

The tracks

Buckle up.

Our tracks are purpose-built for an off-road adventure and promise plenty of challenges that will test your abilities.

Zone One houses a unique variety of tracks and obstacles that are designed to be accessible to any vehicle in the small AWD SUV segment.

Zone Two is the Centre's showpiece, spread across a narrow valley that is home to a variety of testing challenges that will take plenty of determination and skill to overcome.

Zone Three is where you will discover deep inverted moguls, perfect for axle-articulation demonstrations, as well as long, rough gravel descents that promise to challenge mechanical grip.

The team

We're the experts.

Our highly experienced team of experts are led by General Manager, James Ardon, who has been at the helm of the centre since 2016, and Head Instructor, Natasha Hobson-Shaw. Together they have helped grow the reputation of the centre, helping it become one of the premier destinations for off-road driving experiences, corporate team-building events, and industry standard off-highway driver training.
