EnterMWMountain biking in Lancashire is truly the quickest route from hell to heaven. You’ll never forget your first big climb, weaving and wheezing as you conquer the incline. But you’ll never, ever, forget the freedom & exhilaration of your first descent!” Mark, Lancashire

Waking up in the morning, opening the campervan door, wrapped in a sleeping bag looking  directly at the ocean waves, grazing cows to the right, and towering cliffs to the left is enough to make me want to get out there and explore the jurassic coast.” Katharine, London

Anyone can sail – I took lessons for my 50th birthday – and you can sail anywhere – even EnterMW1here in landlocked Derbyshire. Planing across the water today with the wind filling the sails and the sun in the sky was simply heaven!” Alison, Derbyshire

“There’s no greater feeling than conquering a mountain. It makes you feel on top of the world! All that effort and determination rewarded with magnificent views. I’d recommend hiking in the Lake District to everyone! The self achievement is limitless.” Fran, Oxfordshire

Why We Want You To Discover Adventure!

Discover The Great Outdoors

‘Live Life Adventurously’ has been our motto since day one.

Ever since Tris and Becs had the idea for Go Ape back in 2002, our vision has remained the same: to create adventure and encourage everyone to live their lives more adventurously.

You’ve got to practice what you preach, right? Well, it’s fair to say that the Go Ape tribe live, eat and breathe adventure. We get a kick out of living life adventurously, but we get an even bigger kick out of helping YOU to live your life more adventurously. For many of you, this starts with experiencing one of our Tree Top Adventure courses.

Yes, there will always be one or two naysayers. The “I’m-not-the-adventurous-type” folk. But, to those people we say that ‘an adventurous type’ simply does not exist! Anyone and everyone can live life adventurously. Trust us.

Adventure doesn’t need to involve traveling the world, climbing mountains or partaking in extreme sports. Adventure can be found in the everyday; it’s about leaving that ever-restricting comfort zone of yours and trying something new.

Here are some of the reasons why we want you to discover adventure:

You’ll learn things about yourself

Being adventurous will help to unearth all those previously undiscovered skills and talents of yours. You might learn that you’ve got a knack for climbing after taking on one of our tree-top obstacle courses, for instance; or, you may find that you’re an excellent leader after guiding your tribe through the forest on board our Segways.

You’ll surprise yourself

To be able to discover adventure, you need to believe in yourself. You need rid of that “can’t do” mind-set and adopt the “can do” one instead!

Another motto we live by is ‘zero risk equals zero development.’ If you don’t test and push yourself, you’ll never know what you’re capable of. However, discover adventure and you will be constantly surprised at what you are able to achieve. And this will help you to feel more confident in your own potential.

You’ll feel great

Being adventurous is all about getting out there, meeting new people, visiting new places and trying new things. Adventure will enrich your life and help you to feel more fulfilled. And with that new ‘can do’ positive outlook on life, you’re bound to feel great.

You’ll inspire others

Our aim is to inspire others to live life adventurously. Once we’ve inspired you, hopefully you will go on to inspire others! Living adventurously is contagious; if people see you having a great time, they’re going to want in on the action!

So, are you ready to discover adventure?

Or why not help inspire others to discover adventure? Submit your story and you could be in with a chance of winning an adventurous family holiday with Mark Warner. Find out more here.

When Did You First Discover Adventure?


Adventure. It’s great, isn’t it? As you’ve probably guessed, we Go Ape folk are big on adventure, and not just because it’s part of our job. We’re always looking for ways we can get our next fix, from organising mini, weeknight adventures with our pals, to spending a few weeks scaling a mountain or two (or three).

We love those daring, heart-pumping, butterflies-in-the-stomach-inducing adventures. The ones where you start off thinking, “Why am I doing this?” and then finish thinking, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?!”

At the risk of sounding a little clichéd, living life adventurously is a lot like opening a tube of Pringles – once you pop… well, you know the rest. Adventure is addictive and we’re well and truly hooked. Are you?

When it comes to living life adventurously, everyone’s got to start somewhere – even the world’s most-celebrated adventurers were amateurs once. And for many people, it’s that very first adventure that is the most memorable, whether it took place two weeks, two months or two years ago.

What we want you to do is cast your mind back to the very first time you discovered adventure. This might be the first time you camped out with friends, the first time you braved off-piste skiing, or the first time you white-water rafted. It might be the first time you mingled with the locals in a foreign country or took-up a thrill seeking hobby.

Whatever your first adventure was, there’s no doubt you remember exactly how you felt in the run-up to it. All the excitement, mixed with nerves and anticipation – trying to steady your wobbling knees, while taking deep breaths to slow your racing heart rate.

The Feeling of AdventureAnd then, how you felt after your adventure. The “I did it!” kind of buzz you get as your knees stop trembling, the adrenaline starts to wane and your pulse rate starts to slow. That feeling is pretty incomparable, right?

A life lived adventurously is a life better lived. Why? Well, it encourages people to get out there – to try new things, visit new places and meet new people. It inspires you to push yourself to the limits to see what you’re really capable of. Adventure is everywhere, and it’s waiting for you to come and find it. (Who knows, maybe a trip to Go Ape will be where it all begins!)

So, it’s time to inspire others! We want you to reignite those memories of your first adventure and be an inspiration to us all. And, if you need an incentive, we’ve certainly got one: how does an adventurous family holiday to Corsica with Mark Warner sound?

To be in with a chance of winning, we want you to inspire others to live by the Go Ape ethos (which is to live life adventurously!). You might choose to share a story about your very first adventure, your latest adventure, or you could even describe that feeling you had when you did something amazingly adventurous. You’ve got just 250 characters… Good luck!
