We enjoyed our snoeshoeing, it was beautiful being up in such a prisitne, winter wonderland. It was very peaceful crunching through the snow and a cool, unique experience for us.

I had an incredible time at Basecamp Rock Adventures. Loz is very personable and you can tell that he knows exactly what he's doing. I always felt safe and had a smile on my face. I would recommend to anybody that is visiting Wanaka

Received outdoor sport climbing instruction from Emily. Clear and concise instructions but with an emphasis on learning by doing. Relaxed but attentive. Wanaka is a fantastic place to learn to rock climb and Basecamp Rock Adventures are a great company to go with.
