Tree Top Adventure

Enjoy two to three hours in the trees taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings. Nestled away within the grounds of Itchen Valley Country Park, and just a stone’s throw away from the River Itchen, you will come across our 2-3 hour tree-top experience. At a knee-knocking 40 feet our Hampshire adventure is the highest Go Ape course in Southern England. The 250 metre Zip Wire on Site 5 crosses both the field and play park for an exhilarating finale!

Make your way to the Go Ape cabin and be ready to get going on your Go Ape adventure at your booked time. Late arrivals that miss their session will be charged at full price.

Can I bring a camera?

Phones and cameras are permitted, as long as they always stay attached to the participant. Lanyards are available to buy from the cabin, subject to availability.

What is Tree Top Junior?

It’s a fun filled hour of canopy exploring, trail blazing and obstacles for all to enjoy. You’ll negotiate crossings and finish on a high (literally) with an awesome zip wire.

Can I go on as an adult?

If you want to join your little monkeys then just book yourself on. Bear in mind the course is designed for children so the safety cable won’t be quite where you'd like it.

Are there toilets?

Yes there will be, but they may be a little walk from the Go Ape cabin. Please allow some extra time for a toilet stop!

Brilliant half-term activity for a varied family group. I would recommend a one-to-one adult to child/teenager ratio for the tree top adventure for the first time but attaching soon becomes second nature. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the little ones thought the tree top junior was fantastic. We needed to know from the website that the tree top junior was continuous attachment so that adults were free to supervise on the higher course without worrying!

A great birthday for both my 6y-o and my 14y-o girls. Loads of fun for everyone and right opposite the playground and stream so the juniors had extra fun waiting for the big apes to swing down after the final zip wire. A great activity with something for everyone. Thanks, we'll be back again soon.

The overall experience was fab. I was just watching and everyone had a great time. The staff were excellent. I was refunded some money as my partner and nephew didnt finish the course. A nice gesture. Two small issues. I parked at the Go Ape end in the blue badge bays but had to go all the way back to the main buildings to use the disabled toilet. Also the loo roll is out of reach when you sit on the loo.
