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 would like to know the details of Go Wire package, does it involve bridge cross? I and my fiancé is going to wanaka on end of October, we are not adventurous type but would like to try something light adventurous, is this suitable for us? We would like to experience hanging bridge and frying fog but not like to do rock climbing as it is a bit tough for us.
