We offer guided canyoning tours on the Haast Pass road in the Mt Aspiring National Park, a unesco world heritage area. In a nut shell, you’ll be trekking through virgin native forest and then descending magnificent waterways by down climbing, abseiling, sliding, jumping and swimming in crystal clear water. Truely, this is a journey in adventure like no other. 

We have a range of tours to offer from half to a full day. We take only small groups of up to 5 canyoners with a qualified and experienced guide and so you can be rest assured of full care, learning, attention to all details and fun!! Minimum age is 8 years and we cater for beginners through to expert canyoners. Private and family groups are also welcome.

Journey with us on an adventure as we trek through exquisite native forest to the canyon entrance and descend into a timeless world of crystal clear water and sculptured rock.
