New Zealand Canyoning is the ultimate fun adventure sport, which challenges this vertical world with a hands-on approach that relies on skill and self-reliance. Under the watchful eye of an experienced guide you plunge into a semi-underground environment of eroded rock with water as your constant companion and your mode of travel.

Canyoning New Zealand

NZ Canyoning tours start out with a gentle walk through bush along a streambed. Soon the terrain becomes noticeably steeper and sheer walls impede progress. Out comes the abseil gear and you appreciate the value of a wetsuit, helmet, harness and boots as you descend into the abyss with the sound of thundering water rising to meet you. Then follow a steep, confined gorge, sliding down chutes and waterfalls, swimming across deep sumps, jumping off ledges into plunge pools, abseiling into deep chasms and generally having a wet, wild and wonderful time. It's a real thrill to explore this untouched environment and have a huge amount of fun in the process.

At present there are only a few places in New Zealand where Canyoning is commercially available but will become more popular. Auckland in the North Island has a demanding journey through, over and under numerous waterfalls in the Waitakere Ranges. Wanaka near the bottom of the South Island has a deep canyoning experience including a 30 metre abseil down a waterfall known as The Gurgler. Christchurch the largest city in the South Island has a gnarly gorge and waterfall trip that gives adventure thrill seekers the ultimate rush.

Continue your New Zealand adventure by getting a rush from your Canyoning experience.
