THE GOLIATH OF OUTDOOR ADVENTURE

Feel the anticipation build on the long winding approach to Go Ape Grizedale which nestles between the lakes Coniston Water and Windermere.

Even by our standards, these are super high courses but the stunning views across the incredible Lake District, with mountains and lakes as your backdrop, are worth the inevitable increase in heart rate.

Grizedale Forest is a haven for zip wire lovers. Each of the high ropes courses offer seriously long flights but the king of forest flying is Zip Trekking Adventure – a spine-tingling 3km aerial adventure. Once you’ve unhooked yourself from your tree high travels why not try one of the 10 walking trails ranging from 1 to 10 miles.

If you’re feeling fit head up to the highest point in Grizedale Forest which offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the Lake District fells.

Bring or hire bikes. There are several cycling routes, some on forest roads and others for more extreme cyclists.

Keep your eyes wide open – Grizedale is the home to the largest site-related ‘Sculpture in the Forest’ exhibition in the country.

Pack up a picnic or grab a drink and a bite to eat at the Visitor Centre tearoom.

  • 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!!
