Despite an extreme fear of heights I was able to complete the Level 1 climb due to the patience and respectful support of Ben. I am so glad I was able to participate in this experience with my teenage son and friends visiting from overseas. The rest of my group loved it so much they continued to Level 2 and had a fabulous time. I would definitely recommend this as a way to engage with New Zealand's beautiful landscapes for adrenalin junkies as well as for those people who prefer to keep their feet rooted. We loved getting the pictures taken by the guides along the way to remember our challenging moments. Thank you Wild Wire.

We loved our level 1 climb and if we’d had more time would have upgraded to the next level like most of our group did on the day.
You have time to practice the skills needed before setting off and the guides are really clear in their explanations and happy to go at whatever pace the group needs.
The setting is beautiful and they take health and safety very seriously so you always feel totally safe.

This is the absolutely No 1 thing to do while in Queenstown and Wanaka districts, before you do anything else.
It was so safe and so easy, just like they say, if you can climb a ladder then you can definitely do this level 1.
I was sweating more from the weather than the actual activity. You adrenaline junkies should do at least level 2 to get your workout fix. ( we plan on doing level 2 on our next trip out to this beautiful part of the country ).
Our guide Ben so was calm and helpful and put me at ease so I was never afraid.
We did do some pretty scary climbing when looking back at the photos.
Too good, thank you Ben and the Wild Wire Wanaka team.
From Bula and Rav.

This was the best activity I did on my visit to NZ and it’s suitable for all abilities, I had never done anything like this before, but you can choose between three levels. It’s exhilarating with incredible views and photo opportunities. Our instructor Ben really made the whole experience for us, making you feel safe and pointing out extra things along the way. Thank you for a great experience!

My daughter (10) and I really enjoyed doing the level 1 via ferrata activity. Mark and Laurel were great guides, and did a professional job - ensuring both safety and enjoyment for the participants. We'll hopefully be back again in a few years when my daughter is old enough to do the higher routes.

I was really nervous about this wondering if my fitness, and knees were up to it now I am in my fifties. Frank, our guide was wonderful with helpful suggestions, reminders and chatting away to me.
All the gear makes it extremely safe and doable even for this unfit shortie.
The views were gorgeous.
So proud of my achievement!

I gave my brother in-law a voucher to do the Wildwire, which has such a great reputation. He had a superb day on the fun climb in a stunning alpine environment. Thank you guide Ricky for providing such a great experience for him.

What a fantastic experience! I am not a fan of heights so was a bit nervous beforehand. The guides were amazing and explained everything well and with humour. They really put you at ease and made sure you were looked after and safe. I'm so glad I did it!
