My husband and I are adventure junkies and we were not disappointed with Wildwire. From the ease of booking, to the fabulous and skilled guides, to the spectacular waterfall and scenery, we were very happy with our choice. We opted for the Lord of the Rungs adventure which was amazing and super exhilarating. We have done a number of other Via Ferratas and this is right up there with the best we have done. Well done Wildwire for creating an adventure experience that appeals to all ages and levels. The equipment and the wire/steel infrastructure are all top notch and we always felt in control and very safe. If you want a unique and exhilarating adventure option in Wanaka, this is the one to do."
