Mobile Adventures activity trails

Get active with the whole family in the great Cambridge outdoors with our activity trails.

These adventure trails are ideal for children aged 5 to 11 years. Each adventure includes a variety of fun challenges – some have specific, family-friendly themes.

You’ll need to download Wildgoose’s Mobile Adventures app to your smartphone – it’s available free from Google Play and the App Store. Watch Wildgoose’s video to find out how it works.

Use the app to scan the QR code or enter the number code further down this page for the adventure you wish to play.

Regardless of how you do, there’s a free rosette for every family that completes an adventure! If you complete five adventures, you can claim and collect a free outdoor sports game. Games up for grabs include a swingball set, Nerf howlers and cricket sets, subject to availability.
