Climb to the top of your tree

It’s the annual riddle: what to buy for the man who has everything? It could be a friend, colleague, relative or even you. Well, it’s an urban jungle out there, so you could do worse than helping him discover his inner ape.

Go Ape is the award-winning tree top adventure experience that’s grown from cult start-up to full-blown phenomenon over the past eight years. There are now Go Ape tree-trekking experiences in 26 forests and country parks around the UK, stretching from the South Coast to the Scottish Highlands, and two more set to open next year.

The raw and breathtaking Go Ape enables you to monkey around, high in the forest canopy. Once you’re kitted out with safety gear and literally shown the ropes by an instructor, you’re free to swing, climb, crawl and zip through the trees. Challenge yourself on a giant obstacle course of ladders, bridges, tunnels, walkways and wind-in-your-face zip wires. It’s raw, breathtaking, perfect for bonding and a great solution for executive stress.

It’s ethical and eco-friendly too. Go Ape takes pride in the forests and its philosophy includes social and environmental responsibility. Courses are constructed from sustainable materials and designed to minimise impact on trees, with habitats created for wildlife

Gift vouchers are available from £30 and courses provide around three hours of adrenaline-fuelled fun. For information, go to Goape.co.uk.
