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 that are certain 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

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!

  • My boys were desperate to do goape and needed an adult to be up with them. They loved it! And I’ve been voted best mum in the world for overcoming my fears and completing the course. I’m very proud of myself too!!

  • 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

  • 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.
