Zip Trekking Adventure

Buddy up for 3km of tandem zip wiring through the Lake District's sky-scaping Douglas firs. Hike your way up to the highest points in the forest and zip down.  Who can scream the loudest on the 500-metres, longest zip?

  • We booked the Zip Trekking Adventure a couple of days on beforehand. The booking process was easy and they tell you don’t need to print the documents. Great explanation on their website how to find the place and where to park. When you get there it’s clearly signed where to go. And then the adventure starts! It lasted 2,5 hours, it’s 7 zip lines, and it was so much fun! The guys were great and you felt you were in good hands. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who want something different from hiking in the Lake District.

  • 60th Birthday treat I came to do the zip wire adventure on Saturday 16th Feb with my three children as a 60th birthday treat. Despite being very apprehensive at first I really loved it and we all had a fab time. The two instructors were excellent and made sure everybody knew they were safe and what they were doing. I would definately recommend it, if I can do it anybody can!!

  • Fantastic experience on Grisedale’s Zip Trek course. No climbing up into the trees, just a few steps up onto a platform and twin zip wires for racing! Our instructors Jade and Inigo were great company. Memorable and really enjoyable.
