As someone who does lots of outdoor activities I'm used to being excited and impressed with beautiful scenery and addicted to adrenaliane.
If you’re going to do only one adrenaline activity, I recommend this one!It’s outdoors, you are physically active, more or less challenging depending on who you are, but you can definitely feel 100% safe.

Since we went canyoneering with Deep Canyon a week ago, we've done a bunch of other top rated outdoor activities on the south island....

May 2017 We asked a number of locals in the outdoor shops, DOC office and the information office for advice about taking our campervan along the road to Raspberry Flat for the walk to Rob Roy Glacier.
If you enjoy the outdoors, like to hike/ trek and are of reasonable fitness then you must make time for this in Wanaka!
