Dalby

Go Ape Dalby is an adventurer’s paradise.

We’ve set the thrill factor to the max with a jaw-dropping Treetop Challenge, Treetop Adventure, plus Forest Segways all located in Dalby Forest.

One of the great things about Dalby is the sense of excitement and anticipation which builds as the course unfurls before you. The Challenge course is a high one – you’ll find yourself 35 metres up in the air so bring your head for heights. Whether pushing yourself to the max or finding your young adventurer’s feet, Dalby Forest delivers.

Winter Opening Hours

Come and join us in the trees this winter. We are open on weekends this winter (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and 2nd January), so grab your coat, gloves and hat and come and join us for an adventure.

tackle the great yorkshire forest

Dalby Forest, located in the North Yorkshire Moors, is famous for its fierce terrains and far-reaching views which draw an international crowd.

With over 8000 acres of woodland to explore – there’s something to keep everyone entertained.

There are 13 walking trails, four running trails and six cycling trails. Bring or hire bikes as there’s 55 miles of cycle routes which range from family friendly to highly technical, demanding routes.

There are two play areas to get the children blowing off steam and there’s much to be discovered in the Enchanted Wood. Look out for the living willow arches, owl carvings, a mystical fort, giant insects and a spider in the trees. The whole family can put their map reading skills to the test as they tackle the Gruffalo Orienteering route.

There are picnic sites to enjoy some al fresco dining or grab a bite to eat and a drink in the café. Worried you won’t have time to fit it all in? Bring your tent as there are camping facilities.

  • Thought the whole experience was great. However, I do think you should get a full hour on the segways. I fully appreciate the safety aspect of learning how to ride one if it’s your first time but I think that should be built in to the experience making it an 1.25 hrs experience! Great day just not enough time in the forest on the segways!
