The Royal Forest of Dean is a walker’s paradise; it covers over 110 square kilometres of woodland and lies between the rivers Wye and Severn, in the western part of Gloucestershire, on the borders of Wales and Herefordshire. The Forest of Dean is not only renowned as an area of particularly outstanding natural beauty where the scenery changes with the seasons, but also stands out as a place which provides year round interest for visitors.
There is so much to see and do in the Forest of Dean! The natural landscape lends itself to a great variety of outdoor activities.
There is ample opportunities for walking, cycling, canoeing, diving and even exploring caves and caverns up to 100ft under ground. For those wishing to "Go Ape" there is a high wire forest adventure course with rope bridges, high wires, Tarzan swings up to 35ft above the forest floor. There are also a whole host of family attractions - museums, mines and steam trains - something for everyone.
If you are feeling adventurous you can even go on a llama or camel trek.
