The Twin Falls Via Ferrata is one of New Zealand’s newest adventure activities. For anyone looking to go beyond pure admiration, the Wildwire Via Ferrata system on Wanaka’s Twin Falls is the surprisingly accessible introduction to a waterfall climb.

Twin Falls is a spectacular double waterfall that flows dramatically for almost 500 metres via a series of pools and free hanging waterfall sections. The falls are located on private land, near Treble Cone Ski Field and Mt Aspiring National Park, and in an area that is known for rock climbing and spectacular scenery.

The climb, which begins amidst the sheep on a grassy farm paddock, includes hidden pools beneath towering falls, canyons, picnic swimming spots and breathtaking views to the surrounding mountains and lakes. It finishes with a walk back down the hill.

Travel Tips

Wanaka is an alpine resort in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, an hour by road from Queenstown. The Wildwire Via Ferrata is suitable for beginners and families. If you can climb a ladder, you can manage the beginner system of ladder rungs and three-wire bridges.

Tours range from three hours (beginner) to five hours (intermediate), with plans in place for a full-day experience that will become the highest waterfall via ferrata in the world when the final stage is completed.
