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.

Winter Opening Hours

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!

  • What a fab day! I booked the Junior Treetops course at Wendover Woods for my sons 8th birthday party. All of the children (and the dads who took part) had a brilliant time. Thoroughly enjoyable! I also booked the shelter for lunch afterwards which was great. All members of staff were very friendly, helpful and encouraging. I can’t recommend it highly enough, we cannot wait to return! Thank you for making my sons birthday party such and enjoyable and memorable one!
