Go Wild Beginner Waterfall Climb
Wildwire Wanaka is the only waterfall climb in New Zealand and an experience of a lifetime.
Go Wild is safe, fun and suitable for families and total beginners. The adventure begins in Wanaka with a spectacular drive through the mountains to the base of the Twin Falls Waterfall. Participants will learn safety skills and then begin their climb alongside this spectacular waterfall on our via ferrata.
They will cross wire bridges, encounter hidden pools and discover beautiful picnic spots with stunning views. The descent is by trail before heading back to Wanaka.
No previous experience is needed. If you can climb a ladder, you can do this.
