This adventure starts at the Cable Bay Adventure Park near Nelson.
Your tour starts with a 4km ride in a 4-wheel drive vehicles, passing through pristine native forest while your guides entertain you with facts about the park’s diverse native environment, cultural aspects and fun stories.
The Skywire is set 300m above the base café and has incredible views of Cable and Delaware Bays, the western ranges and north towards D’urville island. One a clear day you can even see the snow-capped peak of Mount Taranaki.
Strapped securely into the ride with 5-point harnesses, the Skywire seats up to four “flyers” at a time, with around 1000m of gravity assisted free-wheeling, reaching speeds of up to 100 kph, followed by 600m at a more leisurely pace – ideal for taking in the incredible scenery. Then you do it all again – BACKWARDS
