Level 1 Waterfall Climb from Wanaka (3 hours return)

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    We will meet you outside the Wanaka I Site in our bus. The drive to the waterfall is a very scenic 20 minutes around the lake. Once we arrive we will fit you with safety equipment and teach you how to use it on our practice area. We will then start the waterfall climb where you will be climbing on rungs and crossing bridges next to the waterfall for approximately 1 hour. We will stop for a snack before crossing the final bridge and then walk back down a trail to finish. We will then drive you back to town.

    It was an awesome time. Wish we would have booked the full instead of half day. I would recommend doing the longer trip. Everyone was very helpful and friendly.

    We had a great time on the Go Wild hike. It was not particularly physically challenging, but we were able to climb high enough to get some great views and get up close to the waterfall. Our guide was helpful and friendly. We would love to go back and do one of the more

    Must advise this for first time climbers to learn the "ropes", carabiners and crab claws, while having a load of fun. My family has climbed the Via Ferrata in Loen Norway and the kids did the Level 2, while my wife accompanied me to get me started on the Level 1. Sarah and Adam

    We booked to do Level 2 but due to maintenance we were only able to do Level 1 which was disappointing but we still had a fantastic time. We always felt safe and it was an awesome experience on, luckily for us, a beautiful sunny day. You don't need to be super fit to do this
