Lake Distric zip wire at Go Ape Grizedale | outdoor activities Lake District

Grizedale, Lake District

Exclusive Zip Trek Adventure within a short drive from Ambleside and Hawkshead.

Go wild with FIVE beloved Go Ape Adventures at Grizedale Forest.

Little monkeys and great apes alike can take to the trees and test their skills on our Go Ape Treetop favourites. Or, slightly closer to the ground, encounter enchanting waterfalls and mountain views on two wheels.

However, the pièce de résistance is our exclusive Zip Trekking Adventure!

Race your mates across 3km of tandem zip wiring through the Lake District's sky-scaping Douglas firs.

Who is it for?

The ultimate outdoor activities for adventurous families and adults (height min = 1m on our youngest activity).
