Wendover Woods, Bucks

Wendover Woods sits at the highest point in the stunning Chiltern Hills, and is home to three exciting high ropes experiences for adventurers of all ages.

Treetop Challenge is for adults and secondary aged children, featuring crossings through the canopy that climb higher and higher above the forest floor before zipping back to the ground.

Youngsters under 6 years or looking to build their confidence will love Treetop Adventure, beginning their experience on a low loop before heading to the tree tops. Explorers over 6 years and 1.2m can test their skills on Treetop Adventure Plus, brand new for 2024!

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!

  • Go Ape high ropes course

    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.
