NEW Treetop Challenge Xpress
We put the thrill into thrill seeker on Treetop Challenge Xpress at Dalby. Enjoy all the thrills of our popular Treetop Challenge course but in half the time.

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. 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 delivers.

In conjunction with Nork York Moors Dark Skies festival, 4 additional dates are now available to experience Dalby Sundown Zips this Feburary 2020.

With this sundown special you'll begin your after-dark experience with a head torch to guide you. Then once you're safely attached to the course, your head torch will be turned off, before you zip across a valley in complete darkness! If that wasn't thrilling enough, you'll then enjoy a second zip with nothing but the darkness to keep you company.

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.

Pack the charcoal, with multiple BBQ and picnic sites you’re sure 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.
