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 Dlaby 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.

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.

  • We had a great time at Go Ape in Dalby Forest! The course was exciting and challenging - we are a family of 5 (various ages and physical ability!!!! and everyone enjoyed it equally. We’d definitely visit again!

  • It was a great experience - the staff were all cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable. My 9 year old was very scared at one point - a member of the Go Ape team went up and guided her round the rest of the course - this was really kind and very much appreciated! In general the site (Dalby Forest Go Ape) was professionally run and everything looked to be in good condition. Would definitely recommend!
