Climb a ladder like no other in Wanaka
Queenstown, the winter sports capital of New Zealand, is a must-visit destination year-round, but nearby Wanaka should be on your itinerary too. Among its many worthwhile sights is New Zealand’s only via ferrata. Wildwire Wanaka is a relatively new set-up in the foothills on the way to Tititea/Mt Aspiring National Park where even the most danger-adverse of travellers can stretch themselves by ‘basically climbing a ladder’ as the owners put it; it’s no ordinary ladder, however – this one ascends past the spectacular Twin Falls, offering epic views as part of a wow-did-I-really-do-that adventure. Wildwire run half- and full-day excursions, depending on your level of fitness (and tolerance of vertigo).
