The one on one experience with my guide Yasmin was amazing. She explained everything so easy and never pushed me, just kept encouraging me all the way. I felt safe the whole time and completely amazed how they have built the climbing experience. Next time, level 3 definitely.

This was the highlight of my trip around Otago!

I highly recommend making your way out to Wildwire, it was so much fun and a really cool experience to climb up so close to a waterfall. Shout-out to our guide Yasmin who was funny, engaging and helpful, making the whole climb even better.

The climb isn't too challenging, making it all the more enjoyable to look out at the views and soak up this unique experience. Via ferrata is a great way of getting up close to the mountain without any climbing experience.

I also want to mention how accommodating the team were in rebooking our trip when I had to change plans last minute when my friend couldn't come over from Australia in 2020. They held our booking for almost a year and were happy to book us back in when he was able to come over.

Now I'm already looking at when I can go back for Lord of the Rungs!

Awesome climb
Jul 2021 • Family
This is a fantastic experience. It’s a great way to be high on a waterfall that feels as protected as your own ladder at home - better, given the harness.
The safety aspects are excellent with this being the clear priority of the guides. But they were all engaging and fun too.
Our 13 & 17 yr olds completed it with ease and we would have loved to try the 3rd and final level. Hopefully one for the future.
This is one adventure experience that isn’t just passively entertaining. You get to contribute and achieve the goal of getting up the route. It was clearly enjoyed by the other family climbing with us

Amazing experience with the team at wild wire over queens birthday, climbed level 2 and were able to go at our own pace with constant reassurance from the guides. Wild wire is a great way to test yourself in a very safe and fun environment. Highly recommend if your in wanaka and in need of an activity but also I’d travel to wanaka just for wild wire itself. Always opt for level 2 or 3 level 1 just won’t cut it you’ll be left wanting more! 👌🏼

Beautiful scenery and really kind informative guides. I was a bit time limited the day I went, but the climb itself is not too taxing so i would definitely recommend going to the top if you have that option.

What an amazing way to spend a few hours outside of Wanaka! Stunning views, awesome guides and felt super safe the whole time. We went up to level 2 and got some sweet photos along the way. Loved every minute and would happily go again.

What an amazing experience ! Mark was an amazing, knowledgeable guide and made us feel very safe. Challenging enough to give you an adrenaline rush, but very achievable. We had the most amazing views over Lake Wānaka, that even as a local, I will never get sick of. A must-do for all visitors to Wānaka! Thank you for an amazing day!
