Get off the beaten track and see some raw and amazing New Zealand scenery that would otherwise be in-accessible terrain.

You get to abseil down waterfalls, slide natural water slides, jump into pools and rope-zip down the canyon, offering a range of activities all rolled into one amazing adventure!  We provide all the equipment and no canyoning experience is required, your professional and qualified guides will show you everything you need to know on the day.

Weather your a first time canyoner looking for a new and unique activity, or an experienced adventure seeker looking for the ultimate thrill we have 3 different canyoning sites to suit almost everyone!

Kawarau Half Day Canyon

This is our "level 1" canyon and suitable for almost anyone.  A low level of fitness is suitable and non swimmers are welcome.  We take a 20 minute drive from Queenstown out into the Gibbston Valley and then you will get to enjoy abseiling down waterfalls and sliding natural water slides as the main features of this site.

Black Spur Full Day Canyon

This is our "level 2" canyon.  A medium level of fitness is suitable and non swimmers are welcome in the right water levels.  We take an exciting water taxi transfer or helicopter to this canyon, and then a hike to the start (water taxi option only), and then you will get to enjoy abseiling down water falls, natural water slides, rope-zips and jumps, and then to finish it off a picnic lunch in the sun before returning via water taxi to Queenstown.

Mt Aspiring Full Day Canyon

Open December through March - Departing 8am daily - 8 hours return - NZD$450 per person (minimum age 16 years)

This is our "level 3" canyon and our hardest plus most exciting option.  All participants must have good fitness and swimming ability and no irrational fear of heights!  We take a 2 hour drive from Queenstown to this canyon and then you will get to do some very large abseils beside some pumping waterfalls and big jumps into some white water pools, all the while enjoying the most amazing scenery of the Mt Aspiring National Park a UNESCO World Heritage Site!  A picnic lunch is provided to re-fuel after the days adventure before your return transport to Queenstown.
