Wendover

Wendover Woods feature heaps of colour and budding wildlife, complete with the smallest bird in Europe, the rare firecrest. Sitting pretty in the beautiful Chiltern Hills is possibly our most exciting Treetop Challenge to date. Its not-to-be-sniffed-at Go Ape claim to fame is the optional Extreme Route. It features some of the most challenging crossings that Go Ape offers, which is sure to be a memorable part of your day out.

The Treetop Adventure packs a punch too. Officially one of our hardest adventure courses there’s 429-metres of high rope crossings and a cracking 85-metre zip wire finale.

GO WILD AT WENDOVER woods

Wendover Woods - where you’ll find Go Ape Wendover - is the perfect blend of vibrant scenery and stunning views over Oxford, London and down the valley.

The Forest Centre has almost finished a multi-million-pound re-development so there’s a brand new café opening, promising stunning Chiltern views.

There are lots to explore in this 325-hectare woodland. Hit one of the walking trails and you may spot one of Europe’s smallest birds – the rare firecrest.

If you fancy a fresh twist on the walking front – you can give Nordic Walking a try with Ridgeway Nordic Walking who run sessions at Wendover for all levels and abilities.

If you prefer to do your exploring on two wheels, bring the bikes and hit the family cycle trail. There’s a well-surfaced trail with some climbs and descents.

Looking for more? Then enjoy orienteering, the Zog Activity Trail, Gruffalo sculpture, running trails and if you get here for 9am on a Saturday you can join in on the weekly parkrun!

things to do in wendover

Know Before You Go

  • Wear sensible clothes for adventure.
  • Footwear must be sturdy and suitable for the outdoors. No sandals, slip off shoes, open toes or heels.
  • Gloves are a good idea. Either bring a pair or you can buy them at the cabin on the day.

Make A Day of It

  • Explore the highest point in the Chilterns (267m). 
  • Quest the wood for deer and Europe’s smallest bird, the firecrest. 
  • Head to Boddington hillfort for some archaeological interest.

  • There was an issue of being delayed on the first circuit because of a frightened small child who moved very slowly and tentatively. However the supervisors were very understanding and gave us extra time at the end.

    Christopher

  • Excellent experience; we never did anything like this and the instructors were very helpful and patient with us. They even stayed ten minutes after closing time so we could complete all of the sites. It really was an amazing experience. It was not easy but we managed, and I am sure that if I could do it you can too!
