My partner and I did the beginners trail. It was scary but amazing with breath taking views. Should have done intermediate but maybe next time.

Turning up to work on Monday, get asked "what did you do on the weekend?" Well, well, well replying with "I climbed a waterfall the height of the Empire State Building" certainly raises some eyebrows and gets jaws dropping. I didn't do it for the...More

Really cool activity, we loved it! The guides were awesome and we felt save all the time. It wasn‘t too challenging but still quite high. Great views!

Outstanding experience! There were times you would look down and absorb the fact you are 100m in the air climbing along the waterfall. We went all the way to the top and took the nice helo ride down which I recommend. Some tougher parts on...More

Fantastic experience, from the course which provides just enough challenge to a first time climber without being too daunting, to the guides which create such a fun yet safe atmosphere.

What an awesome experience. This activity is challenging, visually spectacular and overall a superb way to spend your day. Our guides, Emily and Max were top notch and I couldn't recommend this activity enough.

We’re a couple (we left our 3 kids at home). Fab day out. We felt safe the entire time but certainly pushed us out of our comfort zones. Thouroughly recommend and can’t wait to come back with the family. Thanks everyone at wildwire wanaka!
