Highest Go Ape in the country plus NEW Forest Segways It's so high you can see all the way to Scotland. Enjoy a Tree Top Adventure with us in our beautiful forest, riding zip slides through skies, over water and in England's only true mountain forest. We're sure you'll love the spectacular views of the Lake District. Swinging through the canopy, wiping out at the bottom of zip wires and going on an adventure brings people together like nothing else we've ever seen. It really does. We'll brief you for safety before you fly down our zip-wires, leap off our Tarzan Swing and tackle our crossings whilst enjoying some of Britain's most breathtaking scenery. And you can get off road and enjoy our epic forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an awesome segway experience in the Lakes with a down to earth twist. A great idea for a day out in the North Lakes (and home to Bassenthwaite ospreys), this is Go Ape at its most untamed.

A lovely afternoon in September on the Segways. Helpful and friendly staff and something a little different. Would highly recommend Whinlatter for the Segways as the trail is also great for view points across Keswick. Thank you for a great and enjoyable experience. I think...More

great place, good facilities café, gift shop, toilets. Also great place for walking. Car park accepts cash or card payments. You need to be relatively fit as it takes 2-3 hours to complete, climbing and stretching. The tree tops is made up of 5 courses,...More

We did the forest Segway twice! Vicky was an excellent tutor and we all had a great time. Would definitely do it again sometime.

Best Go Ape we have done. Lots of the high thrills you would expect and well organised. The park is beautiful which adds to the enjoyment.

It would be fair to say that I am scared of heights. Being attached in at least two and often three places ought to be reassuring. For me it wasn't and I was supposed to be the responsible adult. After two of the five courses...More

Great fun, a bit of a work out and friendly staff. I would recommend that you wear some old clothes, you will get dirty.

Not as good as Go Ape in Aberfoyle in Scotland, but still very fun. I'm not great with heights but love challenging myself to do these kind of things so I really enjoyed it. Lacked the real extreme obstacles I feel. Make sure you have...More

What a fantastic experience! Enjoyed the tree top adventure from start to finish! Staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. Whinlatter is just absolutely stunning and we can't wait to come back. The only downside was the car park charges were extortionate!

Visited Go Ape at Whinlatter Yesterday and had a brilliant afternoon of fun with my two son's aged 13 and 10. It's quite a physical afternoon and not for the faint hearted but we had a great time. We climbed, dangled, swung, balanced, shreiked and...More

Thanks for getting in touch and for thinking of us Mike. Our adventures at Go Ape Whinlatter are for those aged 10 years and over. 10-15 year olds do require a participating adult with them at all times. The cost for our 2-3... More
