Dalby Forest | The Ultimate TreeTop Family Adventure in Yorkshire
If you’ve got an adventurous family and are visiting Yorkshire, then don’t miss one of the UK’s most exciting treetop adventure, ropes and zipwire courses at ‘Go Ape Adventure‘ in North Yorkshire’s Dalby Forest. The ultimate place for all ages to flex their adventurous spirit and test themselves mentally and physically with over 100 elevated platforms connecting 200m+ zip wires to a huge variety of rope ladders, wobbly bridges and cargo-nets.

Your never too old of too young for this family friendly course
1. The Water Challenge (take a cup of water with you on the course without spilling a drop)
2. The Backwards Challenge (complete the whole course backwards including zip wires!)
3. The 45sec Challenge (a virtual run around the treetops in complete safety… )
We ought to add that the whole wooded area is hugely atmospheric and clearly well made and serviced! It just had the feeling of a slick operation with families everywhere having fun
If you like a walk, Dalby forest gets it right for spectators too

everyone loves a new experience! it makes it feel extra special…
Georges Herbert realised the health, social and team benefits of rope work on ships. But our girls simply love them and we see them as a fun and exciting way to get everyone outdoors and get some exercise as it helps your cardio vascular fitness / upper body strength!
experience the thrill of negotiating 30ft high rope bridges…
Just like some of our Norway Adventures below., we love enjoying these family challenges and experiences together. So with our sturdy boots being put to good use within seconds, the adrenalin was certainly pumping as we considered how best to tackle the extreme obstacles on this course.
An experience that took us nearly 3 hours but you could easily spend a full day here… For us, the biggest positive (along with the ‘backwards challenge’….) was the family feel and constant sounds of laughter … It really is a park full of smiling happy faces!
