Wendover Woods


Near Aylesbury

Take in breathtaking views of the Chilterns

‘Extreme’ route at Go Ape Wendover Woods. A first for Go Ape, a scrambling net and climbing wall just to reach our most adventurous crossings. Will you take on the challenge?

Set high up on the Northern crest of the Chilterns, at Go Ape Wendover Woods you can enjoy the spectacular and idyllic views and wild landscape across Aylesbury Vale from high up in the trees.

With a smattering of tree-top high wires, high ropes crossings and a wind-in-your-face zip wire, you’ll want to swing by this Tree Top Adventure in Buckinghamshire. And if you’re looking for activities and things to do near Oxford, Go Ape really is just a stones throw away.

And just so you know your nearest Forest Segway and Tree Top Junior adventure is Black Park Country Park.

It was a real blast, great fun, and want to do it all over!
Rated 5 Bananas Kirsten - Tree Top Adventure, on 7 October 2015
Excellent fun. I would have liked to know a little bit more about the extreme course at the end. Some of the younger members of our party decided not to do it because they couldn't gauge how hard it would be for them. They then rather regretted their choice.
Rated 5 Bananas Frank - Tree Top Adventure, on 5 October 2015
The cargo net was good. It would be good to add a bike or skateboard. Jack gave us the safety talk and he is a very good instructor
Rated 5 Bananas Jenefer - Tree Top Adventure, on 5 October 2015
Great adventure to share with all the family. Only constructive comment ... on stage 5 of the course you have to commit to the extreme route without really knowing what you're letting yourself in for. As the oldest member of my family group (accompanied by 4 20-somethings) I was concerned that it might be too much for me and almost opted for the easier route. However, since I wanted to share the experience I plucked up the courage to tackle the extreme route and, although it was really hard, it was fun. Maybe you could give a bit more information before people have to commit to one route or the other? Otherwise it was a great afternoon, especially since the sun shone for us too!
