It’s no ‘Go Ape’, which is somewhat surprising given the number of trees in Finland, but the High Ropes course at Basecamp Oulanka provides enough height and challenge for a group of friends to have a laugh at and with each other or even co-workers to get competitive and do some team building.
Starting on the lower route gets you used to walking on the rope; building confidence in your own ability..or falling off and realising the safety harness works ;)..whilst learning the techniques that will be needed to get round the higher route.
and if you need to cheat slightly, like me :), there’s always the top rope to hold onto as you make your way across..
Even if, or especially if, you’re scared of heights (as I am!) this little course is a great chance to put yourself out of your comfort zone without the pressure of holding up people following on behind, as can happen at bigger and busier courses. It’s also a great laugh when you’re with friends so easy to forget any nerves.
The view’s not bad from up there either!
