Had the most amazing time with my family. Aaron and Keiran were great hosts. Sizy was amazing with communication around weather postponements and ensured we were kept up to date. Highly recommend the staff here.

Highly recommend the rafting/ jet boat combo. Nothing too advanced in the rafting but enough rapids to raise the heartbeat a little. The jet boat ride back was fast and thrilling. Andy the NZ American was great as our guide!

Kia Ora joel Thank you - Josh will be thrilled with your feedback. The cold frosty mornings bring beautiful clear days - best spent outdoors having lots of fun and being able to take in our amazing scenery in Hanmer Springs. Thanks, the Hanmer Springs Attractions Team.

Great to see the good kiwi sense of humor is alive and well. Teenagers who are bullet proof standing on that bridge over the Hanmer canyon, soon looked like possums in headlights...hehe. I enjoyed the banter which helped see the teens bungee jump in full flight - delight apparent. Great guides, good vibes nothing beats the first bungee jump. Thanks Hanmer Bungee jump. Recommend this experience to all. Be part of a great South Island experience.

Kia Ora Kapaikiwi13 Sounds like everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Bungy jumping from the historic Ferry Bridge is a great one to check off the bucket list, such an amazing location and the scenery is spectacular any time of the year. Thanks, the Hanmer Springs Attractions Team.
