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!

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.

  • Went as a family of 6 as it was my husbands Birthday and we had such a great time, really brilliant day.

  • 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!!

  • Amazing experiance. Very reassured by the safety measures taken by professional staff. Great value for money. Would highly reccomend.

  • My nearly 9 year old daughter & I had a great time on the Juniour course at Wendover Woods. Although she’s not the bravest person physically, she found it enjoyable because it was challenging but achievable. A few of the elements challenged me a little too! I think if she went again she’d be happy to tackle it with me watching from the ground. The staff were friendly & explained everything clearly.

    Liz Coates

  • A howling good laugh, much too good to be just for the children. I booked for five of us, but one child became ill the day before and there was a no quibble refund. The staff seemed very professional, warm and flexible. They kept an eye on as even when we had become a little more confident. There are water boats around the course, which were much appreciated. I WILL be going again!
