Maybe you’ll get inspired for your 2023 adventure goal planning...

10 Adventure Highlights

1. A wild wander

"Hiking in the Cairngorms and watching a Golden Eagle silently soar above my head followed by a Red Squirrel watching me from a Caledonian pine"

- Anna C.

2. A good samaritan

"I litterpicked for 24 hours around Torbay to raise money for Sue Ryder! It was crazy!"

- Hannah B.

3. a micro-adventure

"Camping in our back garden for the first time. It was really scary!"

- Anna W.

4. A shared experience

"This year for her birthday, I took my daughter camping, just the two of us, as someone quite new to driving, it was the furthest I have ever driven, we ziplined, saw tiny shoals of fish as we swam in the sea, we watched the sunset together, we also took the wrong camping gas so we couldn't cook anything or make a hot drink  but it was a great adventure"

- Claire T.H.

5. A Family First

"First family mountain walk achieved, we all spent 7hrs walking up and down Yr Wyddfa with our 6yr old and 10yr old. They saw the train, the rescue helicopter on a training exercise, mountain sheep, lots of interesting bugs, flora and fauna. They had lots of rests and talked in depth about ice creams and cakes when we were so close to the summit that they didn't feel they could do it anymore. Sandwiches on top followed by mummy and daddy having to jog after them all the way back down as they discovered the effects of downhill walking and sprinting around like baby mountain goats. Planning further adventures this year."

- Francesca C.

6. A poetic trip

"Malham Cove had long been a goal. Climbing the steps was great for your soul. View was impressive lived up to the hype. Even my feet managed not to gripe. It made me smile & feel fulfilled. Amazing phenomenon was just as billed. Now it's time to add more to my list. Let's do this 2023 Go Ape can't be missed!"

- Lindsay A.

7. A Peruvian Wonder

"A long awaited COVID delayed trip to Peru. We hiked the Inca Trail up to Machu Picchu and then on to the Rainbow Mountains"

- Lucy S.


8. A Skyline stomp

"A 20km hike around the Bath Skyline in the summer was definitely my adventure highlight. Exploring such a beautiful city and taking in all the new sights"

- Beth

9. A Thrilling challenge

"This year’s biggest adventure was riding down blue mountain bike trails in South Wales with my 12 year old son. I only learnt to ride a bike during lockdown (aged 46!) so it’s been a huge and thrilling challenge for me and just shows that you can teach an old dog new tricks after all!"

- Di C. 

10. A Go Ape Adventure

“My favourite adventure this year was finally being able to visit @goape_delamere after losing 8 stone and finally being under the maximum weight limit. I’ve wanted to do go ape all my life but - never been light enough too. It was genuinely one of the best days of my life & I made some incredible memories!! I will never forget the day I had lost enough weight to explore the treetops!! Incredible memories made.”
- Zoe


Go Ape’s Naturally Powered Adventures

Our mission is to empower adventurers of all kinds, customers and co-owners alike. We made this a reality last year by sending over 100 co-owners across 10 Naturally Powered Adventures around the UK and abroad.

Naturally Powered Adventures are heavily subsidised adventure trips led by Go Ape, designed to make adventure accessible for our co-owners. They can take you anywhere around the world doing anything from paddleboarding to hiking a 4,000m+ mountain.

Let’s see the 5 highlights of what our co-owners got up to this year.
