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 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!

things to do in wendover

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.

  • Great set up, helpful and friendly staff and a good challenge for the juniors.

    Andy Thorburn

  • Good all round fun. Allocate about 3 hours of time. I went along with my 2 children, 11 and 16 years. We chose the extreme challenges which were manageable but a good physical test, if a bit of a more mature person like myself. Also, found my hands were sore by the end of the course due to the climbing and gripping of ropes, ladders etc so may be worth considering wearing gloves with grip. Great to do an activity the family can enjoy together.

    GORDON-CREED

  • Fantastic experience but quite pricey. We live locally and would love to take the kids on a regular basis but the cost makes it a special occasion event.
