Tree Surfers is about adventure for the whole family, don't just get close to nature, be a part of it.Test yourself on our tree top high ropes course that takes you 70 foot high into the canopy. Be blown away by zip wires, tarzan swings and our leap of faith, all interwoven to the canopy trail. Afterwards, if you are brave enough have a go at the Zip line.At Tree Surfers you can hire hire mountain bikes to explore 30kms of woodland trails ideal for adventurous families. Or try archery with one of our instructors in the woodland range.Tree Surfers is at The Tamar Trails Centre which is the gateway to the Tamar Trails. Pop into the Centre for maps, advice, information and best of all relax in the wonderful Beech cafe. The all year round cafe has a great menu of hot food and cream teas made with local produce and lots of love!

Our 7 year old did the junior rope course, archery and the big zip (about 60-70 ft up!). Friendly young staff and very well run, maybe not the cheapest (think it was £16 for the ropes and archery each then £10 for the big zip)...More

2 children aged 12 enjoyed the junior high ropes Think next time they would like to do the adult course but on this occasion we couldn’t spare the 3 hours Needed a better signpost but otherwise a great find!

My wife and children did the hour long junior experience. Despite it being an hour round quite a short section they absolutely loved it and really took a lot from the experience. Friendly staff and a slick set up, highly recommended this summer.

Fantastic afternoon out with friends. Our boys are 11 and 12 years old and had a great time. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble, on and off the ground. Great coffee and cake in the cafe too.

We went as a family group. The younger ones (7 & 11) did the junior course and my son (16) and I did the adult course. The junior course is fairly easy and I think it would be suitable for really quite young children. The...More
