I love going on active family days out but it’s often hard to find somewhere that will cater for both my daughters (aged 8 and 5) and for it to be fun for us grown-ups too.

My children, our friends and I are going to take on every single Go Ape Treetop Adventure course in the UK over the course of a year to prove that everyone can get active and have fun together whilst also taking on challenges and spending some quality team-building time together!

We will be blogging, vlogging and swinging through the trees all year round to showcase what Go Ape has to offer so you can follow our journey as we try out the large variety of courses and locations, which includes Grizedale in the Lake District, London city adventures right through to Haldon Forest in Devon. That's 24 courses by the end of 2021!

You can follow our journey and find us monkeying around on social media:
