Attraction Information

Stuck for day out ideas? Take a trip to England's only true Mountain Forest which, luckily enough, also homes a high ropes adventure 1000 ft above sea level. Enjoy Cumbrian views in the ultimate zip line experience, Treetop challenge and more!

Up high in the treetops is great and all but below the tree canopy is also pretty cool. Discover majestic creatures on the forest floor and all the diverse wildlife Whinlatter has to offer in the forest segway experience. There are also a whole host of exclusive trails whether that be activity trails or cycling trails - adventure is the name of the game! It's so much more than forest ziplines, it's a day out full of exploration

Things To Do 
Go Ape Whinlatter might just be the answer to your day out dreams! This is one of the highest Tree Top Challenges in the country, sitting at 360m above sea level, featuring cargo nets, rope ladders, zip wires and more.

At that kind of altitude zip wires feel especially fast, particularly as you fly far above the waters of the Lake District. The adrenaline junkies amongst you will also have a blast on the formidable Tarzan Swing - it’s sure to give you a thrill. This is perhaps one of the most dramatic Go Ape locations - in the distance they spy incredible Scottish views, while closer to home spot some of the rare local wildlife.

There’s no better way to explore than on the all-terrain Forest Segway Adventure. It’s an off-road adventure for all the family to enjoy! One of the highest Go Ape courses in the UK Off-road Forest Segway Adventure is great fun for kids over 10 years.

Food & Drink 
Need to refuel? Grab a drink and a bite to eat at Siskins Café. Alternatively, if you've bought your own packed lunches there's a lovely picnic area with great stunning views of the forest.
