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.

My wife and I enjoyed a great afternoon at Happy Valley Adventures, the quad biking as a lot of fun along with amazing scenery. The zip wire was excellent, a lot of fun, very high up with the best views. Thanks again!!!

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

Thoroughly enjoyed my quad bike tour through the natural forest. I was a passenger on the quad bike, so I got to take tons of pictures and videos. Then I did the skywire which was a blast too! I definitely recommend doing the quad bike tour and skywire! It was an experience I'll never forget!

Wasn't sure what to expect but it turned out to be great fun. Trip up and down a winding bush track was part of the activity and it was a nice touch to get a talk on some of the vegetation on the way. Skywire was great fun and I recommend it for families with teenage kids.

We went for a family excursion and were delighted with the experience.. We enjoyed the trip upmtomthe high wire seeing native trees and learning about them from our guide Lana. The sky wire trip itself was fun , scary, excerpting and exhilarating. The highlight of our trip. Well worth doing. We did not have time to quad bike but will... More

This is well worth doing. Flying fox meets ski lift. We were the fastest on the wire that day at 94kph dangling above the tree canopy. Thoroughly enjoyed it - even my husband said he sort of enjoyed it (hes not an adrenalin junky like me!) When we'd finished travelling at speed it was very relaxing just 'hanging there' listening...

I had a wonderful time in Happy Valley - I'm not your typical outdoorsy type... but that bike and I became "one" - in a good way - there aren't bits of it imbedded in me or anything! Challenging enough to be a real buzz. Well looked after, not treated too much like a "girl" - much more like a... More
