Klimbos Achterhoek – GB

Welcome to Climbing Forest Achterhoek

in Ruurlo

In the beautiful forests of Ruurlo you will find Klimbos Achterhoek. Here you can experience a magical day out with your family, friends, colleagues or classmates. The most beautiful and only Klimbos of the Achterhoek is only 20 km away from Zutphen and Doetinchem.

Junior forest

A visit to the Klimbos is a fun day out for young and old. You will find challenging bridges, nets, sturdy lianas and very cool zip lines. From a minimum reach height of 1.30m you can already start with the orange routes in the Junior Forest. Our advice age is to climb from 7 years. For children an exciting adventure where they push their own boundaries, but above all have a lot of fun!

Fun for everyone

As an adult you can climb with your child or grandchild, but you can also get started yourself. For the adult forest you need a minimum reach height of 1.60m. Each route differs in level and height. The green route Discovery is nice to start with. After the warm-up, the blue Sensation route with a height of 8 meters is a nice challenge. Can not you get enough of it? Then climb the red Emotion route with a height of 12 to 16 meters.

Would you like to fly through the air between the trees? Then choose the brown pluck route. Fun guaranteed, because that is still pretty hard! For a real adrenalin kick, you take the gray route where you make a free fall and land with the bungee in a gigantic net. In total you have 3.5 hours time to climb, so you live out heartily!

100% safe

Sometimes it takes some time if you stand high between the treetops, but do not be afraid! Safety is guaranteed by our continuous safety system. This allows everyone to climb independently. Our professional instructors also supervise and offer you help where necessary.


To complete your climbing trip it is very easy to add an upgrade to your online reservation. Before, during or after climbing you can take a drink or a tasty snack. Various refreshments are also available on location. Incidentally, you can also bring your own food and drink.

For the smallest of 2 to 6 years, the Kabouterpad runs along the Klimbos. Wooden posts in the form of gnomes show the way.

The largest labyrinth of the Netherlands is located nearby in Ruurlo. Nice to combine with climbing! Of course you can also walk beautifully in the Ruurlose forest. Recently, a special love path has also been created. In short, plenty to do and experience at Klimbos Achterhoek!
