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.
Look for a poster with a QR code at the beginning of each trail – scan the code with the app to get started. The codes are also linked below.
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.
