Adventure Fanatics Step This Way
Our Whinlatter location isn't just home to one outstanding outdoor experience - it's home to two, our Tree Top Challenge and Forest Segway experience.
Hidden 14-metres above the forest floor, our high ropes course is packed with epic obstacles and jaw-dropping Tarzan swings. If you're not one for following the crowd, may we suggest getting off-road and hitting our exclusive trails on-board an all-terrain Segway.
Tree Top Challenge
Our Former Tree Top Adventure
As England’s only true mountain forest, Whinlatter offers some of the best views in the whole of the UK. Up in the forest canopy, you’ll swing, zip and dive through the tree tops. And if that’s not enough to take your breath away (it will be, trust us), then the stunning views of Grisedale Pike and the Coledale Fells certainly will.
Take a look at what’s involved:

Aboard our all-terrain Segways, you’ll reach vantage points previously inaccessible to all but hardened hikers. With your head in the clouds (or sometimes even above them), you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the Lakes, from Skiddaw to Helvellyn.
