To celebrate the re-branding of our friends at In Your Element (formerly Boots and Paddles) we’re giving you the chance to WIN a family pass for up to 2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 3 children for TreeZone at Aviemore in the Cairngorms National Park, along with a two night stay at Aviemore Youth Hostel!

In Your Element offers amazing outdoor experiences across Scotland with activity bases in the Inverness & Loch Ness area, Aviemore & Cairngorms and the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.

High in the treetops, TreeZone is the ultimate Aerial Adventure Course with zip wires, balance beams, hanging platforms, tight-ropes, scramble nets, white knuckle bridges and gap jumps, set in the ancient Caledonian Pines of the Cairngorms Mountains. The TreeCreeper course is suitable for those aged at least seven years old and 1.1m tall and negotiates twelve obstacles up to five metres off the ground. Once completed, those under 1.3m tall can have another shot along the TreeCreeper while the bigger and braver amongst us can graduate to the Buzzard Course.

To enter, simply answer the following question: How many obstacles are there in the Aviemore Treecreeper course?
