It’s all a bit dreary outside, and whilst we know that’s never an excuse to shy away from getting outdoors, we can’t help but reminisce about our favourite moments from last year. The Go Ape Tribe, yes that includes you, captured some awe-inspiring moments in 2014, here’s our top five:
1. The forest awakens
We’re lucky to have 28 Go Ape Adventures in some of the UK’s most beautiful forests and country parks, which means we’re privy to stunning scenery all year-round. This snap was courtesy of the Tribe from our Thetford course in Suffolk. The warm sunlight glowing through the trees brought a monkey-sized grin to our faces. Personally I can’t wait until the clocks spring forward, only 58 days to go…
2. Don’t forget to look up
The forest floor certainly offers incredible views of surrounding flora and fauna, but sometimes you need to look up to capture truly beautiful moments. We love this worm’s eye view of one of our tree top platforms, there’s something special about climbing our rope ladders before tackling the next tricky crossing or exciting zip wire. Typically, our Tree Top Adventures are about 12 metres high, but the highest Go Ape platform is 18m above ground at Go Ape in Grizedale Forest. Afraid of heights? Why not make 2015 the year you face your fears!
Did someone mention Grizedale Forest? This photo of our Zip Trekking Adventure had to make the top five photos of 2014 for the sheer magnitude of the surroundings. Our outdoor zip trekking is over 3km long and offers adventurers incredible views across the valleys for around 2 exhilarating hours.
4. Into the beyond
We know no one loves adventure more than kids, which is why we designed our Tree Top Junior courses just for them. For us, this snap encapsulates the sense of exploration we want all little monkeys to feel as they make their way around the obstacles.
5. Glorious gyroscopes
There’s something wonderfully peaceful about this photo of the Tribe exploring the forest on our all-terrain Segways. Heading off towards the sun, we know our Forest Segway Experience is definitely a unique way to enjoy the great outdoors.
And one for good luck…
We couldn’t help but include this photo of a jumpster hitting the tramps at Air Space, our latest adventure. Based near Glasgow, Air Space is a huge spring-loaded urban playground, and the largest indoor trampoline park in Europe. For more amazing photos, check out Air Space on Instagram.
