Visited today and absolutely nothing to fault. Friendly staff, very informative talk on the drive up to the sky wire and the ride itself is outstanding. Such views and just breathtaking.

We took a trip out to Happy Valley to do the 'flying fox' during our honeymoon stay in Nelson. It is located about 20/25 mins drive from the city. The skywire itself is located about a 20 minute drive from the office and its far up into the mountains via very twisty roads which gives great views over the valley.... More

We arrived at Happy Valley Adventures and immediately the friendly staff got us sorted with bookings for the quad bike tour up to the skywire. Whilst this was happening the kids were whisked away to feed two very hungry orphaned lambs, which they absolutely loved and couldn't stop giggling and smiling about it afterwards. A great little extra activity. We... More

Oh Happy Valley, how I did have fun with thee, let me count thy ways... All nonsense aside, Happy Valley Adventures is a great opportunity and I am so glad that we took advantage of it. We found out about this activity through a brochure and found ourselves down there at about 3pm. We were promptly greeted and the rules/risks... More

Disliked the fact that due to the rain - it got rained/flooded out we could not attempt this. Will have to go back one day.

We noticed the sign off the main road when on our way to Nelson and decided to stop in and check it out on our way back. We were very glad we did as we had an amazing ride on the Sky Wire. There were 6 of us so after the long slow trek up the hillside to get to... More
