Our activity providers are independently owned and operated assuring your Wanaka activity is delivered with passion and authenticity.
We went on a short tour as part of getting to know the activities around Wanaka.
George was a well spoken genuine kiwi farmer who knew how to tell a good storey and keep you entertained with interesting facts and figures along the drive aswell as answering all our questions.
There is spectacular views while you have a coffee or tea and make sure you ask how George is more or less personally responsible for finding Shrek the sheep.
The jet boat tour up the Matukituki River valley was more spectacular than we could have imagined.
A great way to view the surrounding snow-capped mountains and many waterfalls. The in-between hike was beautiful and unique with more hidden waterfalls.
Dress warmly and wear sturdy, waterproof hiking boots, though, as a bit of crossing gentle brooks is also included.
The visit to Wanaka, a small tourist town, is also recommended.
The boat ride on Lake Wanaka was great given the beautiful views, but the hike to the top of Mou Waho island was even better! Our guide, Craig, was friendly and knowledgeable, and he made the tour really fun. We learned a lot about the history of Wanaka, and also about the flora and fauna.
Craig’s enthusiasm about nature and history, and his sense ofhumor brought everything to life. The views were spectacular, and it was really fun to see the Weka bird up close. This was the perfect eco tour – a small group, great guide, and amazing place! Definitely a highlight of our trip so far!
Today’s experience with Aspiring Helicopters was beyond expectation!
Today we booked, last minute and without hassle, to do a scenic flight with a snow landing and WOAH! It was spectacular and so much better than we could have ever imagined! The staff were so friendly and professional. I would highly recommend to anyone considering taking a scenic flight with Aspiring Helicopters!! 10/10 for overall experience.
