A great way to warm up those biking legs, Glendhu Bike Park has trails for all levels. Head up to Jacks Spot and pick your downhill trail or if you are feeling like a bit more elevation, head on up to the top for the most spectacular views. E-bikes are available and highly recommended.
Heli Biking is the ultimate mountain biking experience. Enjoy a scenic helicopter flight overlooking the three giant lakes below with breath taking views of the snow-capped Southern Alps. With world-class equipment, guiding and instruction, Heli-biking is suitable for all fitness levels and abilities.
One of the best outdoor activities you can do, Wild Wire is a must while in Wanaka. There are numerous levels to choose from which means everyone can have a go but if you can do the full climb, you will be whisked off the top by helicopter - 'James Bond style'.
Professional mountain guides will show you the best treks in the Mount Aspiring National Park. Start your journey with a Helicopter flight into the mountains and explore dense temperate rain forest and some of the finest mountain terrain that New Zealand has to offer.
A qualified and experienced guide will take you through native forests before you descend through sculptured rock carved out from waterfalls. A great day out abseiling, sliding, jumping and swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Mt Aspiring National Park.
Experience the excitement of rock climbing with a private guide who will show you some epic locations. All equipment will be provided and appropriate climbs picked for your level and ability. A great way to get that adrenalin pumping and feel that sense of achievement when you get to the top!
After a busy day out the last thing you want to do is cook, right? We will organise a private chef to cook your group a gourmet meal, so you can sit and relax, reminiscing about the amazing day you have had while sipping on a glass of local pinot noir.
What about a massage to keep you feeling in tip top condition for your next adventure? Book a massage in the comfort of your luxury holiday home in between drinks and nibbles prepared by your private chef. Prepare those muscles for your next day of adventure.
