Enjoy a canopy experience like no other with Goodleaf Tree Climbing
Our popular two hour tree climbing experiences are the perfect introduction to the magical thrill of tree climbing. They’re fantastic fun and give you a great sense of achievement and boost to self confidence. We climb in one tree and we’re different to wall climbing or high ropes - a tree climbing experience is perfect for sharing with friends and family.
The two hour experience takes place with small groups of climbers - there's no pressure to climb high or even reach the top of the tree; you might just enjoy the unusual experience of sitting on a branch and taking in your surroundings. We provide qualified and experienced instructors who will teach you the ropes (and the knots!), to enable you to take to the canopy of our stunning mature oak tree. We provide the latest safety equipment including harness and helmet. We even have a special canopy hammock for you to relax in as you go up.
We think tree climbing with Goodleaf is great because:
It's tech free time for adults and kids
You're out in nature, which has amazing physical and mental health benefits
Our tree climbers often achieve way more than they expected - tree climbing is a great self confidence boost
Our lovely staff are on hand supporting and ecouraging you throughout your climb
We provide refreshements as part of the two hour experience including 'The World's Best Flapjack', according to a Trip Advisor review!
Goodleaf is based in Appley Park in Ryde and just a two minute walk from the sandy beach of Appley. There are lovely places to eat near by or you can bring a picnic to enjoy in the park or on the beach. There's a pay and display car park in the park, but don’t forget we offer a 5% discount if you travel to us on foot, bike, bus or train.
