Now is your chance to try the latest winter adventure sport, a great alternative on your winter holiday. Lake Alta in the mountains above Queenstown offers the most accessible and reliable Waterfall Ice Climbing in the country; and because it's in our backyard we are the specialists. Our other locations offering different challenges include Wye Creek and the South Face of Single Cone.

Ice Climbing is essentially climbing on frozen waterfalls. It is definitely exciting and IS suitable for absolute beginners. Rock climbers can easily transfer their skills into ice climbing skills. Surprise yourself with all the thrills of rock climbing and mountaineering piled into a single day.

With quality instruction and a bit of practice the absolute beginner can enjoy themselves on moderate or steep ground. With the safety of being roped from above, you have the freedom to explore to your hearts content.

Ice Climbing is sometimes thought of as 'Extreme' and impossible for beginners to try. We ensure the right level of challenge is provided to suit your needs, and make your day the best for YOU.

We provide transport, all the technical gear, including state of the art Ice Tools, Boots and Crampons, and naturally all the safety equipment. You need to bring ski type clothing, lunch and your camera.

Price: NZ$300 per person
