Tree Top Adventure


Located to the east of Coniston Water and to the south of Hawkshead lies Grizedale Forest. Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park, Grizedale offers an unrivalled day out for everyone. Our jewel in the crown features Zip Trekking Adventure - a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs of our Cumbrian hideaway.

Go Ape Grizedale offers 4 different activities. Minimum requirements apply for each activity so please visit the website to learn more.


Enjoy two to three hours in the trees taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings; a high ropes course for all the family. Set in a forest of sky-scraping Douglas Firs, Grizedale feels seriously high, mainly due to its vertigo-inducing 19 metre platforms. Our South Lakes adventure features two Zip Wires which fly over the road below!


A fun filled hour of canopy exploring, trail blazing and obstacles for all to enjoy. You’ll negotiate three loops of crossings and finish on a high with two awesome Zip Wires. Grizedale is the only Junior Adventure in our family tree that showcases a tiered course with a “Lobster Pot” change of height crossing!


Our Segway experience at Grizedale Forest offers the very best of the Lake District. From breathtaking views of Coniston Lake and mountains, to encounters with enchanting waterfalls, our variety of routes ensures there’s something on offer for every ability, whatever the weather. Our stand-on, self-balancing Segways are a brilliant way to discover more of the forest than ever before


Zip Trekking Adventure is a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs at Grizedale Forest. An exhilarating way to fly above the forest floor and live life adventurously in a completely new way.
