Welcome back. Please read our guide to visiting the forest in the summer of 2020. - View now

Our forests are host to a range of fantastic Go Ape adventures. Bring out your inner tarzan with an adventure today!

Go ape is currently closed. It will re-open on 4 July and we recommend that you book your Go Ape Adventure in advance, via their website. Please remember some facilities in the forest are still limited so check our web pages before you travel, to help you prepare for your visit.

Choose from a range of outdoor adventures designed to inspire anyone looking for an unforgettable day out in the trees. Between the nerve-testing crossings of Tree Top Challenge, to the high ropes of Tree Top Adventure that are ideal for the little ones, the forest canopy waits to be explored. More family-fuelled fun can also be had on the springy tree top wonderland of Nets Adventure while  Zip Trekking Adventure is a fast-paced zip wire journey totalling 3KM, coupled with breath-taking views of the Lake District.

Heights not your thing? For those looking to stay firmly on the ground, Forest Segway takes you whizzing through the trees aboard an all-terrain electric Segway.

Opening times vary between location so be sure to check availability and book ahead at your chosen site.
