Wanaka is full to the brim with activities that will test you, relax you, entertain you or wow you. They will all help with creating that magic moment memory that will be a celebration to remember for a lifetime.

Nestled on a lake, the town of Wanaka is spoilt for choice when it come to action activities. It’s a paradise all season round for getting the heart pumping. However I have to say that in the summer there is nothing better to get the heart pumping than the challenge of Deep Water Canyoning.

When I was first told about this adventure, I must have had a sideways look of are you nuts!! I just didn’t quite get the reasoning behind jumping off cliffs in to dark water surrounded by shear smoothed out rocks all in the name of fun.

However, after bravely pulling on of the wetsuit and clicking in to safety gear, I must admit that I had butterflies of excitement and a very nervous laugh. It was a huge challenge for this normally well put together wedding planner. I was taken out of my comfort zone and I LOVED it. From the beautiful bush and rock formations to the laugh out loud moments, this was a true Wanaka challenge that any wedding guests would love to experience. Even if it is just for bragging rights at the reception!!
