Description de l'activité

The Wanaka via ferrata is a must do activity. This exciting via ferrata outing is perfect for anyone who loves waterfalls and beautiful places. 

New Zealand’s only waterfall climb, Wildwire Wanaka is an experience of a lifetime. You'll climb ladder rungs, cross wire bridges, encounter hidden pools and discover beautiful picnic spots with stunning views while you climb alongside a 700m cascading waterfall.

The adventure begins in Wanaka with a spectacular drive through the mountains to the base of the Twin Falls waterfall. You'll be taught the necessary safety skills and then begin your climb alongside this magnificent waterfall on the via ferrata. The descent is by trail before heading back to Wanaka.  

The Waterfall
Twin Falls is a spectacular double waterfall that flows dramatically though a series of pools and free hanging waterfall sections. The falls are located near Treble Cone Ski field and on the road to Mt Aspiring National Park. Their base, and the start of this adventure, is only a few minutes walk from the parking area. The falls are located on private land and the area is well known to outdoor enthusiasts for the high quality rock climbing and spectacular scenery. The waterfalls are beautiful to admire from the roadside, however, once up close, beautiful crystal blue pools, grassy plateaus and dramatic canyoning sections reveal themselves. There are swimming holes, waterfalls to duck under and picnic spots along the way.

The opportunity to explore these falls up close is an exceptional and truly memorable experience for anyone. By using via ferrata systems, this is an easily obtainable opportunity for even the most inexperienced enthusiast as ladder rungs and bridges will be secured to the rock enabling people to access areas that would have until now been too difficult.

The excursion
The full day excursion carries on to the upper sections, which gradually become steeper and lend themselves to those wanting their limits to be pushed, though options for a variety of difficulties exist.
