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 featuring a climbing wall and scramble net. 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

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.

f 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!

  • It was a great course and lovely zip wire only problem was a parent who took their child on that was frightened of the zip wire and some of the obstacles holding us up for some time. But your staff were very good allowing us to get round all of the course and giving us some extra time to do so. Many Thanks Bruce

  • My 2 Grandchildren girls 8 and 11 both enjoyed it very much Jenevieve 8 was a little nervous and didn’t go on the zipwire which she wished she had later! Posy enjoyed it all. I was impressed with the staff particularly when they helped Jenevieve so much. We shall certainly come again thank you for making us so welcome Carol Davey

  • Fantastic experience but quite pricey. We live locally and would love to take the kids on a regular basis but the cost makes it a special occasion event.
