Northwest Jeep Tours

The “Northwest Jeep Tours” company was organized to provide jeep tours of different kinds of difficulty and duration. We use specially designed off-road vehicles and the tours are held in the North-West Russia on a commercial basis and on an "all inclusive". We would like to introduce our company to people, interested in extreme auto tourism and to those, who are bored with the city, with vacations in Turkish hotels and really miss untouched nature.

The company was organized by enthusiastic professionals in their area. We are very experienced in travelling and we have been working with cars for a long time. The company offers jeep tours of low and medium duration (2-7 days). The geography of tours is bounded with North-West Russia, including regions of Karelia, Kola Peninsula, Leningrad Region, Arkhangelsk, Vologda, Tver, Novgorod, Pskov and some other regions.

Our company has it's our repair base with machining and recovery facilities and very professional and experienced staff.

For providing commercial jeep tours we have chosen specially equipped classic Japanese SUVs. When selecting suitable brand cars, we have chosen the most popular and respected brands among the “jeepers”- various modifications of Nissan Patrol, Datsun patrol, Dayhatsu and Isuzu. We are planning to increase the range of vehicles. We are especially attracted by some modifications of Toyota Landcruser.

The most important conditions for the vehicles, we select:

  • naturally aspirated diesel power unit with the volume not less than 2.8-3.1 liters;
  • manual five-speed gearbox with dual high transmission;
  • hydraulic booster, etc.

The year of production was also an important criterion for choosing the cars. We think that cars made in 2000-2010 are highly overloaded with advanced options, moreover, in our case, it's not reasonable to remake practically new expensive cars. That's why we have chosen the vehicles of the brands mentioned, produced from the mid 80s up to the middle 90s. So, the repair works beside structural alterations of the prototype, with lifting suspension, also included a large complex of works on reconstruction of bodies, power carrying frames, all components and assemblies, painting and anticorrosion works and recovering the interior of the cars.

From the very beginning we were not going to make jeeps with unlimited pass ability. We thought that such cars could be used only by professional “jeepers”, extreme sportsmen, not the tourists, pulled out of their comfort city life for the short time. But, by our pilot trips in 2009-2010 we can say for sure, that our jeeps have perfectly proved themselves on technically difficult special stages of the route. So, our cars have been prepared not for sports records, but first of all for pleasant, safe and comfortable travelling with off-road extreme elements.

Our potential client is a city ​​dweller, used to the comfort of modern city cars. So, our jeeps have not only good off-road qualities, but at the same time they are pleasant to look at and comfortable to travel in. We have done a great job in this area. The vehicles we got, practically re born. Our company gave the old cars a second life. Today they look like just produced cars, with modern highly qualified multimedia, computer, navigation and other equipment, radio communication, etc.

Speaking about the duration of the trips, we consider the 2-4 day tours are the most attractive ones, because the physical exertion in such tours is rather high.

While planning the routes, we are not only thinking about passing the slopes. Driving in difficult road conditions, especially in a bad weather can become boring and tedious. But our main goal is active leisure! So, you are going to have extra impressions during your trip, by visiting objects of local lore, historical, architectural, and ethnographic past. You will also enjoy fishing, “field bath”, swimming, rafting, and foot radial routes in some interesting historical areas.

“All inclusive” is the main concept of organizing our trips. We take care of all provisioning functions. Each tourist is fully equipped with everything necessary in the field conditions:

  • camping equipment;
  • tents;
  • campfire equipment;
  • sleeping gear, if necessary;
  • overalls;
  • three time hot meal;
  • dining tables and chairs, dishes;
  • inflatable boats with motors, and many other things.

Tourists may also take their own equipment.

We hope, that in a wonderful trip, with the “Northwest Jeep Tours” company, you will not only have a rest from city rush, but also meet a lot of interesting people, communicate with like-minded persons, not taking into account ranks, material status, money and all the modern life attributes. For several days we are going to become just good fellow-travelers, suddenly happen to choose the same interesting route. Soon, we get back to our usual lives, hoping to meet again.
