Zip Trekking Adventure

Buddy up for 3km of tandem zip wiring through the Lake District's sky-scaping Douglas firs.

Your adventure starts with an invigorating 15 minute walk with your group, high into the fells. You'll need a degree of physical fitness and a sturdy pair of boots you don't mind potentially getting wet. From here it's all downhill, soaring side-by-side along one of the UK's longest networks of zip wires. A truly unmissable way to experience the Lakes.

Hire a zip camera

Keep a slice of the action of your Zip Trekking Adventure. For £10, ViewPoint is a discreet bit of kit that grabs wide angle video as you soar across Grizedale Forest. 

Whilst you focus on the experience, ViewPoint will capture your zipwire moments. Relive the excitement, watch the highlights and capture the emotion.

Prices: £59

    Grizedale in The Lakes We did the Zip Trek with instructors Tilly & Sam. I was a bit nervous to say the least but Tilly and Sam were amazing. They were so patient and encouraging. A wonderful experience that I would do again in a heartbeat.
