A Must Do Wanaka Activity. Our via ferrata tours are perfect for anyone who loves waterfalls and beautiful places. Our tours are also suitable for beginners and families. We start in Wanaka and you will climb alongside Twin Falls, one of Wanaka’s most iconic waterfalls on our via ferrata tour. If you can climb a ladder, you can do it! There are hidden pools beneath towering falls, picnic swimming spots along the way and the views to the surrounding mountains and lakes are breathtaking. All tours depart from Wanaka. Join us!

I had a great day out on the Via Ferrata. It might be a little daunting at first, and you have to get your head around clipping and unclipping from the guide wires, but the trip leaders were very accomplished, and patient. The challenge of the climb is totally overcome by the exhilaration of completing it, Who wouldn't have fun... More

I'm an avid rock climber visiting New Zealand. Not wanting to being all of my gear over from the States to get some rock climbing adventure in, the WildWire Via Ferrata was a fantastic substitute. The staff was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about climbing and Via Ferrata (something as a climber I never knew existed). My wife and I completed the... More

We did the 5hr medium difficulty trip, we had a really enjoyable day and great guides. So cool to be able to climb up the face of a waterfall with brilliant mountain views in the background. A really great trip if you have never climbed or are new to climbing, although if I am honest, maybe a little too easy... More

If you are into a bit of adventure this is a really awesome thing to do in Wanaka. Great friendly crew, phenomenal views, yum lunch. Can't wait till the next level is completed to come out and try.

A fantastic experience. The guides are incredibly professional, and sure know what they are doing. I was climbing as part of a large party, and felt very safe at all times. The climb itself is mentally daunting but physically quite easy and very safe. Highly recommended.

'Climbing up a waterfall' isn't a sentence that does this trip justice. Absolutely amazing experience, and couldn't have asked for better guides. I've been home for three days and I can't stop talking about it.

I am lucky enough to be with a company who used this as part of a team building exercise. Outstanding guides and equipment that made you feel secure but challenged at the same time. We had a fantastic climb in beautiful weather to produce a stunning experience all round that will be remembered by us all. Fantastic!! with big thanks... More

We all have an appropriate fear of heights, and I had some hesitations about this when booking from afar. It was my 13 year-old daughter's birthday and we gave her the choice of what to do. She said, "I want to climb the waterfall." Okay, done then. We had a blast! There are two levels and I recommend you take... More

Had the most amazing time doing this! It is a must do for anyone visiting the area. Not what I was expecting at all, literally climbing up next to the waterfall. Stunning views and lovely guides who let you go at your own pace. Some parts are a bit scary and make you feel very exposed, but you are very... More

I had a wonderful time with Pablo and Alex doing the 5-hour Wild Thing climb. Can't rave about it enough. This waterfall climb was my favorite thing that I've done in New Zealand! The climb isn't too difficult, so anyone can do it. I highly recommend this activity.
