Take an incredible scenic helicopter flight from the valley to mountainside before summiting a mountain. Trained guides will assist both beginners and seasoned climbers for a view never to be forgotten.
Meet your guides in the morning and head out to the base of the mountain for your days adventure. Board the helicopter for your scenic light into the mountains, towards the steepening slopes and the snow line.
Once at the snow, your guide will run through some climbing techniques and safety details before leading you towards the peak of the mountain.
Enjoy the opportunities for photos against an incredible backdrop and the amazing views at the summit before your descent back to the helicopter for your flight back to the valley below.
This climbing day is intended to be suitable for beginner climbers who would like a taste of what mountain climbing is about and for those who love to be in the outdoors. More difficult objectives can be arranged for appropriately skilled and experienced climbers on request.
A good fitness level and some previous hiking or tramping experience is preferable to participate in this activity although the main asset one can have is a sense of adventure!
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to their policy.
The group will have a minimum size of one guide and three climbers and a maximum size of two guides and eight climbers.
The weather in the mountains can change very quickly so you need to be prepared. This trip requires a good forecast to proceed, in particular the helicopter flight demands fine weather so it is unlikely to be too nasty.
A full equipment list and description of clothing requirements will be given at the time of booking. Some equipment is available for hire and specialised mountaineering equipment will be included.
This experience departs from Wanaka.
