Wilderness Adventures & Team Building

With Mount Aspiring National Park, a world heritage area, right at Wanaka's backdoor there's no shortage of opportunities to experience the majesty of its glaciers, rainforest, waterfalls and mountains.

Days can begin with a helicopter flight for breakfast on a glacier, then rendezvous with a jetboat on the river bank for an exhilerating ride into the wild, swap the jet-boat for a 4WD and then finish the day watching the sunset over Lake Wanaka from the top of mountain with a glass of local pinot noir ... Or for budding Bear Grylls types, how about an overnight wilderness experience in one of the many backcountry huts?
