Once you’ve had a brief introduction, some safety instructions and a demonstration from one of the friendly team members that works there, your Forestal Park adventure really starts.
Before you know it you’ll be clambering up the side of huge trees on ladders, traversing rope bridges high up above the ground and even swinging at some speed into what look like giant spider webs made from nets. As you clamber up and swing between the trees in this stunning secluded forest environment you will start to imagine being a bit like Tarzan; zooming down the massive ziplines really adds to this sensation!
In fact, as some of the routes on offer are seriously high in places (the highest point is 30 metres) you will probably feel more than a little nervous at some points.

Although you will be high up above the forest floor which probably not something you’ve ever experienced before in your life, there really is nothing to worry about because safety at the park is paramount. As well as the excellent introduction from one of the park team at the beginning, there are also staff members on hand to help you out if you need some assistance maneuvering around some of the trickier routes.
