Things to do Worcestershire

Go Ape - Wyre Forest

Wyre Forest is an area of gentle rolling hills, meandering rivers, steep wooded valleys and very ancient woodlands. Generally the area is popular for walking, mountain biking, horse riding, golf, fishing and canoeing. Go Ape is set in a 6000 acre forest with massive Oak and pine trees. The whole area area is great for a weekend break in a beautiful area.

Go Ape activities involve tree top crossings, tunnels, bridges and zip wires. The experience usually takes about 2-3 hours. You will be trained in the use of harnesses, pulleys, carabineers and various safety methods by qualified instructors. Afterwards you will navigate through the tree top obstacle course to eventually finish on a brilliant zip-wire descent. Fantastic fun.
