Holy s***! This blew my expectations out of the water… First time really being introduced to Via Ferrata climbing and couldn’t have walked away more buzzed. Great team, great tour, really polished and whilst it requires a decent base level of fitness (and a stomach for heights) I felt safe and well looked after throughout. Honestly cannot recommend this highly enough. Also having seen the levels up close, the level 1 climb was good but I would have left wishing I had done more - I recommend at least doing level 2 to get the real deal. Thanks Mark and Wildwire team!

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! 👌🏼

Our day with Wildwire and WILD THING was cherry on the cake! We had few days around Queenstown and Wanaka. The Wild Thing was easy to moderate for our body but was challenging our mind. Mind-bending experience. We felt safe all the time but it was hard to "let go". Super entertaining day with views and professional guidance. We are coming back for next level!
