Our adventure near Hawkshead (the jewel in our crown) has always proved a popular day out. Built on a side of a hill, it feels seriously high. And that's because it is. Enjoy our epic Tree Top Adventure in the Lakes. Swinging through the canopy, wiping out at the bottom of zip wires and going on an adventure brings people together like nothing else we've ever seen. It really does. You'll fly 200 metres across the top of the Grizedale Beck and marvel at the forest canopy 18 metres up a magnificent Douglas Fir. You and your tribe can expect the ultimate adventure at Grizedale. You can get off the beaten track and enjoy our NEW forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an epic experience with a down to earth twist. And Grizedale Forest is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Tiny Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids! Zip Trekking Adventure is a brand NEW experience. The course is a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs at Grizedale Forest, providing customers with an exhilarating experience of flying way above the forest floor, and seeing the area in a completely new way. Please arrive 15 minutes before Zip Trekking Adventure.

Had a great day out at Go Ape in Grizedale forest doing the Zip-trekking adventure. All the staff in the Go Ape cabin were welcoming and helpful, giving us plenty of time to read all the info about the day. We were then met by the 2 instructors who were leading us - both were fantastic. Really liked that Sam... More

A party of six of us did the zip wire trekking course which was the last day up in the lakes after four days of adrenaline fun. Told to take gloves, but when we got to the first zip wire we were told we wouldn't need the gloves and we could put them in the staff bag for safe keep.... More

Was lucky enough to be the only two on the 9.30 tree top adventure so we had all the time in the world to climb. Lots of variety in the adventure i.e rope swings, zipwires, climbing through barrels etc. The staff were really friendly, enthusiastic and very patient with us so cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you!
