Delamere Forest

Go Ape Delamere Forest is home to four awesome outdoor activities for adventurers of all ages.

Young children over 1m tall will have the best day out tackling Treetop Adventure.

For children above 1.2m and over 6 years old, why not try Treetop Adventure Plus which offers more thrills and challenging crossings.

Treetop Challenge is for older children, teens and adult adventurers, but this is a high one – 12 metres up and the stunning views of Delamere Forest are worth it. 

Prefer to stick to the Delamere Forest floor? No worries! Our all-terrain Forest Segway experience is one you'll never forget.

So many Things to do at Delamere Forest

There's an adventure for everyone at Delamere Forest, with three tree top experiences to choose from and Forest Segways to explore the woods. 

You and the family can spend the entire day at Cheshire's largest area of woodland. Delamere Forest is home to a rare ‘quaking bog’ and the beautiful Blakemere Moss – a flooded wetland formed during the Ice Age. 

You'll also find a number of easy-going walking trails in Delamere Forest. You will love the incredible views and will see plenty of wildlife. 

Bring your bikes or hire some if you‘d like to explore Delamere Forest on two wheels. Or for an extra dose of fun, enjoy a ride on one of our Forest Segways!

Gruffalo Orienteering is a fun family map reading challenge. Using a simple map can you and the children find the twelve Gruffalo markers hidden deep in the wood?

Worked up an appetite? Bring a picnic or grab a bite to eat and a drink at the café.

"I’ve visited Go Ape Delamere twice now. Both visits were absolutely amazing and truly exciting. The staff are amazing and not at all intimidating like I had feared before visiting for the first time. Amazing experience and I can’t wait to try out different Go Ape locations."
