Go Ape at Grizedale Forest, Cumbria is set in a stunning location and has five experiences. There is The Treetop Challenge, Treetop Adventure, Treetop Adventure Plus, Zip Trekking Adventure and Forest Segway.

Treetop Challenge – Tackle high platforms and tricky tree crossings. Free-fall through the Douglas firs and take a trip over the busy road below, or challenge yourself with the free-fall Tarzan Swing. The challenge takes 2 to 3 hours to navigate your way around. There is a minimum age of 10 years and a minimum height of 1.4m.

Treetop Adventure – With intricate crossings, wobbly bridges and great zip wire rides, all designed with the younger family in mind. There is no minimum age, however, there is a minimum height of 1m. Duration 1 hour.

Treetop Adventure Plus – This is great for teenagers wanting to push themselves a bit further. It is designed for children above 1.2m and 6 years of age. Duration 1 hour. The challenge includes the Treetop Adventure plus an extension with trickier crossings, wobblier bridges and an even longer zip wire.

Zip Trekking Adventure – This is one for the zipline fanatics. There are seven ziplines totalling a whopping 3km, zip wire heaven. The longest zip wire is 500 metres. Duration 2-3 hours. There is a minimum age of 13 years and a minimum height of 1.4 metres.

Forest Segway – This experience offers the very best of the Lake District. They are heavy-duty all-terrain Segways on spectacular off-road trails. Duration 1 hour. There is no minimum height/age, however, participants must weigh at least 45kg/7st.

During the darker months, they also offer Sundown Sessions which are worth checking out. Duration times including safety briefings.
