Go Ape Grizedale
Do you have a head for heights? Try the UK’s leading adventure centres Go Ape! They offer a surreal experience, climbing about and zip wiring through the trees.
Luckily, there’s a Go Ape for you to experience in the beautiful woodland of Grizedale Forest. Grizedale Visitor Centre is roughly an hour’s drive from Underscar, however, it’s an experience not to be missed and well worth the trip in our opinion. A few of us have given it a try, and we can safely say it’s bags of fun!
So, what are you waiting for?! Zip wires, all sorts of different ropes, Tarzan swings and crossings await.
The full Go Ape course takes approx 2-3 hours to complete. However, should you wish to stop for whatever reason, you can to exit the course at the bottom of each section, which will be shown with a zip line. You just have to follow the path back to the cabin.
