Why would you climb Mt Everest when you can see some equally spectacular views right here in New Zealand? This adventure of a lifetime is perfect for thrill seekers and we were right in our element. Nature provided the most beautiful backdrop while we abseiled down the most amazing waterfalls - you can't get any closer than fresh cold spring... More

Having also done a skydive, caving, canyon swing and a couple of bungy jumps when visiting NZ, the canyoning was trumped most of these as a highlight of my trip! Russ and T were our guides on 26/1/15 and were very professional, good fun and made even those with a fear of heights feel comfortable. There are around 6-7 abseils... More

Abseiling, Zip lining , Jumping/bombing with incredible views, it has it all! This is the most incredible way to spend 10hrs of your life! I don't normally do reviews but feel this is worth yelling from the roof tops about :) thanks again I'll be back when there's more water rushing through.

An excellent day out - would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see a stunning side of NZ most kiwis dont even get to see. Russell & Ryan were fantastic guides & kept everyone safe & amused all day. Stunning!

The whole trip, from top to bottom, had been amazing. Challenging for sure, yet safe and well organized. We even got a BBQ at the end to warm ourselves up! And the photos to show off! Thank you so much Canyonz! Cleo and Glen

A full day of abseiling, rappeling, and jumping into pools is one you'll remember. The guides were great. They were helpful and patient even with slowest folks. The only negative was some rope burn. I got.

This was one of the coolest things I've ever done. My sister and I were a bit nervous as we aren't the fittest of the fit or the best at sporty things in general. It was a big challenge, however the guides Russ and Ryan were really supportive and encouraging (and so were the rest of the people in the... More

I spent the day canyoning in Sleeping Gods in Thames (Coromandel) with Russ and Ryan of Canyonz. It has been one of my favourite experiences in NZ: abseiling waterfalls, ziplining, jumping, sliding,...... Awesome guides. A great adrenaline rush and still feeling safe the entire time. These guys are amazing and I highly recommend this activity!! Mikel

This was a great day out. The scenery was amazing and our guides Russ and Ryan were good fun as well as very professional and safety conscious. I would recommend to anyone with even a slight sense of adventure.

I won't say any more and give anything away, but they certainly know how to keep things interesting. Just go!!! Wonderful day with Russ and Wayne. Really good equipment and orientation. They were focused on us all day. They work quick too, so not a lot of standing around that you sometimes find on trips such as this.
