Treetop Challenge

Winter Opening closed from 2nd December - 14th February 2020. Closest open location for Treetop Challenge is Go Ape Grizedale

Pick the wild card, swap the weekend sports game for a whole new challenge that is sure to test everyone with a visit to the high ropes in Cumbria. Begin with the relative ease of Grandpop’s and let your competitive side build up to a finish on the skidding Shuffle – a task that will require you to use all your strength and balance. If our tricky crossings aren’t quite enough to satisfy the urge for a breath-taking experience, you’re sure to be thrilled by a ride on the formidable Tarzan Swing -  enough for any adrenaline junkie!

practical information

  • We went for Whinlater and Grizedale go ape tree top adventures, enjoyed every second of it. Grizedale go ape is much more adventurous and higher, plus zip lines are longer. will do it again no doubt. on third day went for Grizedale go ape zip line trekking adventure and that was incredible, best experience we ever done. 100% recommend to everyone to do it.


  • Was well constructed, well supervised, kids couldn't complete the course because it was too wet and cold but said they would like to do it again when warmer, we were offered a refund.

  • Had a great time, everything was explained to us on how to use the equipment they made sure we knew what we were doing then we were ready to go of on our own, great day.


  • Excellent fun day out will return again

  • Fabulous scenic location amongst the huge plantation trees with the mountains in the background, chap supervising us was very calm, friendly and patient, explained everything clearly which was great as my partner was slightly terrified about doing the course. Some great obstacles and the tarzan swing is awesome - plus if you don't take too long you can have a few more goes. Great cafe on site too (forestry commission owned) where you can sit and watch the wildlife just outside the window at the birdfeeders. Car parking is auto no. plate recognition so you just pay at the machine when ready to go (card or cash).

  • Great fun for 3 of us from 15 to 58!! Well run and managed by the staff in a fantastic setting at Whinlater.
