A day trip to the adventure forest

Adventure forest is run by two enterprising French seafarers with confusingly similar names.  30 mins from the Cliffhouse there is a great cure for vertigo and fun for the adventurous, young and old.  From Whangarei take the road for Tutukaka and head past Glenbervie until you reach Huanui Orchards (and maybe stop in at the shop for some seasonal fruit). At Huanui turn left off the main road and you will find the Adventure Forest about 1km on the left.

The challenge at Adventure Forest is to test your balance and nerve on walkways suspended among the tall pine trees.  There are a range of courses for ability levels ranging from a infants course to the Adrenaline circuit with its scary rope swing and cargo net.  There’s a relaxed atmosphere and your hosts are very good at gently encouraging you to text your limits.
