Adventure Activities

  • Top pick! - Wildwire. Experience a via ferrata (iron rung) climb on soaring waterfall whilst in Wanaka! Wildwire is a truly great guided day out climbing a private via ferrata at Twin Falls in the Matukituki Valley. A safe and fun active activity for all ages.

  • Scenic Flights – in Wanaka we are surrounded by a myriad of lakes and mountain ranges as well as South Westland and Fiordland National Park, with the world famous Milford Sound. Seeing such sights from above by helicopter or plane is a must whilst visiting the South Island.

  • Bungy Jumping - Bungy… the quintessential New Zealand activity that speaks for itself. And Canyon Swing! Let us organise this for you after your trip with us and take the hassle out of it. 

  • Skydive Wanaka – if you’ve ever wondered about hurtling towards the earth at 200kmph then now is the time to ‘dive in’. Wanaka boasts the most amazing scenery (on the planet, we reckon) to jump over and it’s even more spectacular when viewed from above in winter covered in snow. 

  • Multi-Pitch Ice Climbing - After your trip/course you could add-on a multi-pitch single day 1:1 ice climbing ascent with your guide. Depending on your skill level, there is a range of excellent options within a couple of hours walk near Queenstown.

Film your Trip

  • Have a camera man join your trip and document the entire thing! Choose from a variety of options for different budgets. You could have a full-colour book and short film, or a full documentary for television. Your trip is the trip of a lifetime; why not keep it to show your friends and family

Upgrade to Luxury Accommodation

  • Wanaka and Queenstown have some of the most relaxing and beautiful accommodation in New Zealand. Let your friendly liaison know if you would like to discover some of the potential options that they have to offer.

Full Equipment Outfitting Service

  • Let us take the hassle out of buying new gear. We can sort all of your equipment requirements for you from head to toe with specific personal purchases that will leave you with all of the best gear on the mountain.

Full Activity Programme for Non-Climbing/Skiing Friends or Family

  • Your friends or family may wish to join you on your holiday but don't like the idea of heading into the backcountry for skiing or ice climbing. Let us know if this is the situation and we will be able to put together an itinerary that keeps them busy while you are up high. There are so many wonderful things to do, so have a chat with us and we will put together the perfect program.
