About Go Ape Whinlatter

Looking for an unforgettable day out in the Lake District? Take a trip to England's only true Mountain Forest, Whinlatter Forest Park which, luckily enough, is also home to two epic Go Ape high-ropes adventure 1000ft above sea level!

You can enjoy spectacular Cumbrian views on the ultimate zip line experience, tree-top adventures and more family fun!

Fun Activities For Thrill Seekers

After a safety briefing where you can physically practise how to move along from treetop to treetop, you can let your little ones go wild! As they clamber into the tops of the trees before zipping back down to earth. Treetop Adventure is the first rung on the Go Ape ladder and gives thrill-seekers access to three loops of sky-high, wobbly bridges and intricate tree crossings all ending with an 80m+ zipline.

Treetop Adventure Plus is for those looking to level up! Once you've found your feet on Treetop Adventure, take the fun to new heights on Adventure Plus. There’s 10m+ platforms, unique crossings and a 100m+ solo epic zip-wire, where you can set your eyes on some incredible views, on your breath-taking journey. 

Plus, there’s no better way to explore than on the all-terrain Forest Segway's adventure. The perfect two-wheeled adventure, with its off-road experience, that all the family can enjoy! Explore one of the highest Go Ape locations in the UK on off-road Forest Segways, it's great fun for kids over 7 stone.

Why not take on the Treetop Challenge? This course will surprise and excite you as you tackle the treetops in the ultimate challenge!
