Go Ape Whinlatter

Welcome to England’s only true mountain forest. Whinlatter boasts unrivalled views across Bassenthwaite Lake, Derwentwater and Keswick. Located in the North West of the Lake District, you’ll find us in the heart of it. It plays host to two of our high ropes activities, built in 2022, as well as our all-terrain Forest Segway experience. The latter includes dramatic views across this unique landscape. If you’re looking for an action-packed day out in Cumbria, Whinlatter comes ‘highly’ recommended. With fantastic walks, exhilarating mountain biking, rare wildlife and adventure play to boot.


Treetop Adventure is an adrenaline-filled, hour-long high ropes activity aimed primarily at children and families. It has intricate tree-to-tree crossings, wobbly bridges and brilliant zip wires for kids, all designed for adventurers over 1m tall. Kids and parents love Treetop Adventure as it pushes children outside of their comfort zone in a safe environment. The continuous belay system means that participants are always attached to the safety wires. Children under 6 need to be supervised by an adult up on our high ropes course (1 adult can supervise up to 2 under 6s). For children over 6, parents can decide to supervise/cheer from the course, or the forest floor (1 adult can supervise up to 8, 16-15 year olds).




Treetop Adventure Plus is all about the ‘more’. More speed, air, freedom, height, and thrills, aimed more at our older families and adult adventurer seekers. It’s a significant step up and extension to our popular Treetop Adventure high ropes course, so participants need to be at least 1.2m tall, and 6 years old to participate. Participants will have full access to the Adventure loops of the course to find their feet, hone their skills and have fun. When they feel ready, it’s time to hit the heights of Adventure Plus and the additional loop. The extra loop goes much higher into the treetops, with more challenging crossings, including 3 tree-to-tree zips. This turns up the adventure and the fun, finishing with their biggest zip-wire ride of the day back to the ground.
