We did the quad biking + sky wire ride. Very enjoyable. The staff were great, maintaining an excellent sense of humour, even after my Wife drove her quad bike into the river! Well worth the 15 min trip out of Nelson.

Owner picked us up in town which was very helpful. Well organized. Do not do this if you have not driven a car, a person in our group turned over her quad bike because she had no experience driving and panicked.

Booking was easy for our quad bike adventure - a really nice trip (although probably better to go for the longer trip). The Skywire is a must - a really different way to get an adrenalin thrill!

All Riders must be 16 years of age but anyone 5 years and up can be a passenger. We have limited passenger bikes and these get sold out quickly.

No. You can choose any activity. If you just want to do the Skywire, come on out.
