Sky Wire

Highly recommend the sky wire. Great host and thrilling activity. This would suit even those who are a bit nervous about heights and adrenaline activities.

My brother and I went quad biking and went on the sky wire. We had a great day. The quad bikes were awesome.

Great fun, riding around the bush on Quad Bikes. Great scenery, great company, and if you're good, finish up with a bit of fun on the quads.

There is a lot to do with this attraction and it is very popular amoung young and more mature adults. Horseback riding, Quad trecking, high speed high wire flying, and lots more. A very fun day worth the money.

During our stay in New Zealand we found ourselves in Nelson, looking for something outdoorsy to do- but with cooler/rainy weather constraints waterspouts and skydiving was a no go. Last minute dashed off an email to these guys at about 9pm checking for availability the next day. Jill got back to us within an hour to set up a time,... More

Two of us then went on a horse ride, great guide, patient & calm, even suitable for total beginners like me. Two went on quad bike ride, enjoyed it, friendly guide.Well worth the... More

I hate heights so very nervous about the zip wire. When you see how high the plaform is you might think twice, but just go with it. After 2-3 seconds you will wonder what all the fuss you made was about. Felt very safe strapped into the seat. I had a young kiwi guide with me and i was the... More

Delightful 2-3 hour trek around the hills above Cable Bay –old trees, stunning views, n tea or coffee and cheese and biscuits included. And then there was the zip wire!!! Even better going backwards! And the chance of a thrash at the end. We managed a guided tour with only two of the guide and us and that gave us... More
