This was my first time doing Via Ferrara style rock climbing. The staff was amazing and very competent. Great safety precautions. Made me feel very safe, but still very exciting!

Loved this adventure. Wish I could've slowed it down a bit to really relish the surroundings. But well organized, safe, and great guides.

We did the Via Ferrata in the pouring rain and had such a blast! The team are friendly and professional and it's the perfect activity if you want to do something adventurous, but you're not into jumping out of planes. Highly recommend!

Hi Abdulla, That looks much better, you've got everything in the right place now. Just a few things; Day 2 - Lake Wakatipu is the lake in Queenstown, so you won't see this, this day. If you stop at Arthur's Pass do a walk or two, it'll probably take you the best part of a day to do this drive anyway. Check out Hokitika Gorge, probably on the morning of Day 3 will be best. Day 4 - Despite what Google says, it takes most travellers the best part of the day to drive from Franz to Wanaka by...More
