Wendover Woods – Go Ape!
Drive into the heart of this beautiful woodland and you will find a variety of things to do, see and experience.  Set off along one of the many trails on foot, bicycle, buggy or horse for a relaxing exploration of the highest hill in the Chilterns.  Alternatively participate in something a little more energetic, such as Go Ape! Tree Top Adventure, orienteering, or the fitness trail assault course.  If that's all a little too energetic, just find a quiet spot to picnic, enjoy the views, have a barbecue or pop in to the cafe for coffee and cake.
