Our forest doors at Maften are open nearly all year around so there's plenty of time to live life adventurously.
However, we usually close after early December as not only does it get a little chilly we like to give our adventures a little TLC during this time.
To see when you can unleash your inner ape at your preferred Go Ape location please use our orange booking bar to view available booking dates.
We highly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
