Highest Go Ape in the country plus NEW Forest Segways It's so high you can see all the way to Scotland. Enjoy a Tree Top Adventure with us in our beautiful forest, riding zip slides through skies, over water and in England's only true mountain forest. We're sure you'll love the spectacular views of the Lake District. 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. We'll brief you for safety before you fly down our zip-wires, leap off our Tarzan Swing and tackle our crossings whilst enjoying some of Britain's most breathtaking scenery. And you can get off road and enjoy our epic forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an awesome segway experience in the Lakes with a down to earth twist. A great idea for a day out in the North Lakes (and home to Bassenthwaite ospreys), this is Go Ape at its most untamed.

What a fantastic experience! Enjoyed the tree top adventure from start to finish! Staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. Whinlatter is just absolutely stunning and we can't wait to come back. The only downside was the car park charges were extortionate!

Visited Go Ape at Whinlatter Yesterday and had a brilliant afternoon of fun with my two son's aged 13 and 10. It's quite a physical afternoon and not for the faint hearted but we had a great time. We climbed, dangled, swung, balanced, shreiked and...More

Great fun and the instructors (Vicky especially) are really helpful. Can be physically challenging as well as scary at times because of the height but had a really great afternoon. You can enjoy a little walk around the forest afterwards too.

We had a mens' retreat here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You pay £33/adult for the treep top adventure, but it takes a good 2.5-3 hours and you get your money's worth. Go Ape is what it is cracked up to be. Great group activity.
