PRE-BOOKING is ESSENTIAL in HOLIDAY PERIODS and at WEEKENDS
Zip Treks are £30 per person. We run several trips per day, weather permitting. In holiday periods we run at least 4 trips a day, at 10am, 11am, 1.30pm, and 2.30pm.
Overall the trek takes around 2-3 hours, depending on weather conditions and group size.
During the winter trips are available on demand, enquire by email or by phone for more information.
To enquire about booking you can use the contact form here, or give us a call on 01540 651777. We take full payment at time of booking, over the phone in order to guarantee spaces.
If we have space we are more than happy to accommodate customers who turn up at the Zip Bothy on the day however we highly recommend you call in advance and book to avoid disappointment.
YOUR ZIP TREK WILL LEAVE ON TIME. IF YOU ARE NOT WITH US BY THE TIME YOUR ZIP TREK IS DUE TO START, YOUR TRIP WILL LEAVE WITHOUT YOU. NO REIMBURSEMENT WILL BE GIVEN. PLEASE AIM TO ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY.

The Zip Park can operate in almost every weather. Safety is our main concern and occasionally your guide may have to adjust the trip due to extreme conditions. High winds from certain directions can affect the last couple of zip lines. These last lines are never guaranteed if the wind is strong; however we will do what we can to run them.
Thunder and lightning, as you can imagine, are not our best friend when you’re hanging off steel wires in a forest! If thunderstorms are forecast we may have to cancel your Zip Trek then we will let you know as soon as we can. If we cannot run then can offer you a re-booking, gift voucher or full refund.
If you cannot come after booking, as long as you give us 24 hours notice, we can re-book you subject to availability or give you a gift voucher or full refund. If you cancel within 24hrs of your booking there is no refund nor re-booking available.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the Zip Trek. This is to ensure you have time to get ready to go – the trip leaves at the time you booked for. If you arrive after this time there is no guarantee of you being able to do your trip nor getting your money back.
Unfortunately we also can’t offer a refund if you get kitted up, walk to the start but are unhappy to do the course. Space on trips is very tight and at a premium. It is up to you to commit to the trip or not, in advance.
