  • We had a terrific time on the zip wire trek! Our instructors, Steve and Sam, were helpful, friendly and patient, and had a good sense of humour. The guys who drove us to the site were great, too. The equipment all looked well cared for, and the safety aspects were made very clear without being onerous. To be fair, the good weather helped, but the whole experience was well worth our very long drive to get there. I'd do it every week, if I could!

  • This was a great experience with 8 zips. As we were ahead of time our guides allowed us to do go on the longways zip twice.

  • Did the zip trekking adventure in Grizdale - a little expensive but really worth every penny. Incredible views and a fun couple of hours - even in the pouring rain!

  • Loved it! Wanted the zip trekking to last longer but we sure will do it again sometime this year! Instructors were fab.
