Add on to your trip...

Adventure Activities

  • Our 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. 
     
  • Shark Diving - This is an adventure you don’t want to miss – shark cage diving just off the coast of Stewart Island, New Zealand where you will be up close and personal with these fascinating creatures of the sea. You don’t need to be an experienced or certified diver as the cage is a surface cage with air delivered into your regulator via a hose from the deck. We can arrange a 3 day trip for you from Wanaka which is fully inclusive so you don't have to worry about any of the organisation, just worry about the sharks!
     
  • 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. Talk to our staff about it today!
     
  • Canyoning - Canyoning adventures are a journey unlike any other. Get in touch with a special natural world and see beauty such as you’ve only dreamed of… From the raw power of strong waterfalls to the tranquillity of deep, forested pools, from sculptural rockscapes to glowing green moss droplets, you will be immersed in a world you never knew existed.
     
  • Fiordland Helicopter Flight and Remote Scuba Dive - Take an incredible scenic helicopter flight through Fiordland National Park, a listed World Heritage Area, where you will land on a private boat in the very remote Dusky Sound. Then don your dive gear and head underwater for a phenomenal dive in the unique underwater world that Fiordland has to offer. Feast on an amazing lunch of fresh seafood, before heading back to civilisation. Truly an experience not to be forgotten.

Additional Climbs

  • Rock Climbing - After your course you could add-on a multi-pitch single day 1:1 ascent with your guide. Depending on your skill level, there is a range of excellent options for rock climbing in the region. This is a superb way to consolidate the skills that you learnt, and an opportunity to feel the real exposure of multi-pitch climbing.
     
  • Climb Kosciuszko - While you are in New Zealand, you could pop over to Australia to climb one of the Seven Summits, Kosciuszko the highest mountain in Australasia. Let us take the hassle out of the logistics and organise everything for you. It is a fantastic country and a really fun, non-technical, adventure. Contact the office for a detailed quote.

Film your Ascent

Have a camera man join your ascent 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 has 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 Wanaka has to offer.

Full Equipment Outfitting Service

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

Full Activity Programme for Non-Climbing Friends or Family

Your friends or family may wish to join you on your holiday but don't like the idea of actually climbing a mountain. 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 programme.
