I hadn't been canyoning before - but i'll certainly do it again now! Had an amazing day with these guys, couldn't fault it one bit. The day consisted of 2 water taxis, a bit of walking and a lot of fun on the river! Loved our group and how much everyone helped and encouraged each other! One of my favourite... More

This is one of the best tours we have every done. The entire day was absolutely incredible. I also felt safe the entire time as our guides were extremely capable and were very good at encouraging people to step out from their comfort zones.

Abel Tasman Canyons takes you beyond the track and the beaches and immerses you deep into the national park. I'm a confident swimmer and was hungry for the thrill of canyoning. Nicki is a less confident swimmer and is less enthused at the idea of throwing herself off rocks and sliding down waterfalls so she was pretty nervous. Despite the... More

Excellent time canyoning through the Abel Tasman with 2 really experienced and friendly guides. Felt 100% safe at all times and if you can't push yourself to your limits then there are opt out options..A must do activity in this beautiful and idyllic part of the world.

We did several canyoning trips while we were on honeymoon in New Zealand and Abel Tasman was our favorite! It was the longest of the three we did (which means you get to do more stuff!) and our guides Lee, Mark and Mitch were all fantastic. They made the day even better because you could tell they enjoyed their jobs... More

Great day making our way down the Torrent River. Loads of fun abseiling, zip lining and jumping from top bottom. Weather was amazing and made the scenery more stunning. Mark and Mitch were great guides and made the day great fun with stories of the area and encouraging everyone as we made our way down. Would do it again in... More

My 18 year old daughter did this activity on her own. LOVED it! It was really different and pulled together various activities to make a unique experience: jumping, sliding, ziplining, abseiling all in one activity - amazing! The guides were a lot of fun and extremely supportive. One of the best experiences she had in NZ on this trip!
