What you can expect

If you're looking to go sightseeing while exploring on an adventure then this 5-hour Via Ferrata experience is perfect for you! Lasting for around 5-hours the experience sees you travel through the beautiful Otago countryside from Wanaka to Twin Falls, a 60-metre high waterfall. It's from the base of this waterfall that your adventure truly begins as you ascend the rock cliffs of the waterfall by climbing up the Via Ferrata course. The route is made up of steel cables, ladders, suspension bridges and wires, which makes for an awesome experience for all who are brave enough. Reaching incredible heights and admiring breathtaking views of the surrounding Otago region, you'll be well rewarded for all of your hard work. Ideal for active beginners comfortable with heights, this is one of the best experiences for adults and children alike as the tour caters for children as young as 13 years of age. All necessary equipment is supplied including harnesses, helmets, lanyards and more, as is all necessary training and safety briefings from your experienced guide. Members of the group are advised to wear suitable clothing, sturdy shoes, bring sunglasses, sunscreen and swimmers if you're looking to go for a dip in the relaxing hidden pools.
