Sundown Adventure

An hour of treetop excitement and exploration for young adventurers over 1m. Find out more
here.

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!

  • Owen and the team at Wendover Woods really looked after my niece, sister and I. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful and the instructions given to us were clear, easily followed and ensured we could make the most of the experience. Highly recommended.

  • I hate heights but ... got over that pretty quickly once you realise your harness is everything and some bits your just hanging and rope swinging in thin air. Brilliant fun and good instructors so felt safe. Only downside for me was my harness dug in too much and did hurt. Will bring padded trousers next time 😂 I struggled with the cargo nets about bit but if you're able bodied and reasonably strong your be fine.
