Zip Trekking Adventure at grizedale forest
Zip Trekking Adventure is a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the skyscraping Douglas Firs at Grizedale Forest, providing you with an exhilarating experience of flying way above the forest floor.
The unforgettable two hour experience includes:
• A safety demonstration from our experienced Tribe and use of all equipment
• A 20 minute hike (through one of the most beautiful, dramatic forests out there) to the meeting point
• A ride off-road where you’ll be whisked along winding mountain roads up to the training zip
• Time in our training zone and a chance to practice landing like a pro
• Seven zip wires covering a total distance of 3km – and the certificate to prove you’ve done it!

Located to the east of Coniston Water and to the south of Hawkshead lies Grizedale Forest. Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park, Grizedale offers an unrivalled day out for everyone. Our jewel in the crown features Zip Trekking Adventure - a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs of our Cumbrian hideaway. The Lake District is a hub of things to do with a vast range of activities to spend the whole day out among the trees. Please allow plenty of time to get to Go Ape Grizedale. Roads get very busy in the Lakes so we’d advise you to allow some extra time!
