|If you wanted to get closer to the trees and unleash your inner ape, why not try Go Ape, with courses at both Grizedale and Whinlatter Forests. Go Ape is all about getting out in the open, having fun and being more adventurous. Here’s what Go Ape say about the experience:
“It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘tree-top adventure.
We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery; blend with a smattering of tree-top high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip wires; finished off with a liberal dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.
We kit people out with harnesses, pulleys and karabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)
The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun.”

Go Ape! Whinlatter is the highest Go Ape course in the country, at 360 metres above sea level.
It’s so high you can see all the way to Scotland (on a clear day!) Get a thrill from riding a zip slide through skies, over water and through England’s only true mountain forest. This is Go Ape at its most untamed.
Go Ape! Grizedale has the highest Go Ape platform in the country, at 18 metres. Built on a side of a hill, it feels seriously high. And that’s because it is. You can fly 200 metres across the top of the Grizedale Beck and marvel at the forest canopy 18 metres up a magnificent Douglas Fir.
