If you thought Buckinghamshire was boring, take a look at these exciting experiences to be had in this beautiful county.
Swing from the trees in Wendover Woods or at Black Park and get a birdseye view of the forest. Ropes, zip lines, nets and walkways take you on a magical journey through the tree canopy with views you wouldn't normally get to see. Or hire a segway and whizz through the woods with the wind in your hair and no effort at all.
A more sedate experience but a thrilling one as you board a steam train and chug through the Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire countryside in the style of a bygone era. They often put on events too such as cream teas, quizzes, on board entertainers and seasonal lunches.
Experiential photography walks where you will learn how to make the best out of your smartphone camera and take stunning shots of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You'll also learn interesting facts about the environment and the local area.
These workshops and experiences are held in Chiltern woodland near Stokenchurch and include camp fire cooking, willow weaving and wreath making, art and craft workshops and even axe and knife throwing!
If you’d like to learn some primitive skills and really get back to nature, then Alex is the expert. Fire starting, wood carving, arrow making and plant identification are just some of the skills he can teach you.
Take your own or hire a bike so you can enjoy one of the many trails mapped out by the team's professional cyclists. The routes showcase the best of the Chilterns’ scenery and you can chose a road, gravel or hilly adventure with or without a guide. Day trips or camping/glamping experiences are available.
If you prefer to be driven, Chiltern Trike Tours will chauffeur you round the Chilterns on board their boom bike called Bumble Bee. Admire the scenery and stop off at local farm shops, distilleries, vineyards, windmills, steam railways and more in this unqiue experience for two (plus the driver).
