Details

Go Ape unveils the UK's first tandem zip wire experience at Grizedale Forest, Cumbria.

Zip Trekking Adventure is the longest series of zip wires anywhere in the UK, with over 3km of zip line through one of the nation's most beautiful and dramatic landscapes - Grizedale Forest.

Visitors to the brand new course can experience two exhilarating hours of flying 100ft above the forest floor, allowing the beautiful Grizedale Forest to be seen as never before. Go Ape Zip Trekkers can either fly solo or partner up, to travel at speeds of up to 30mph down a breath-taking network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs, taking in Views of Langdale and the Sleeping man of Coniston.
