Night-time Glowworm Canyoning Adventure

An authentic New Zealand canyoning experience. As night falls, be guided by the light of the glow worms and stars!

Highlights

  • Located on hidden Raglan farmland surrounded by pure natural beauty

  • Accompanied by an experienced and personable guide
  • Revel in the magical luminescent glowworms at the final waterfall
  • Award winning tour and 5 star reviewed on TripAdvisor

Descend into the old fresh water canyon stream flowing down from Mt Karioi as night falls.

You will be surrounded by picturesque scenery throughout the trip, all located on hidden Raglan farmland. This is a highly rated, truly magical canyoning experience.

We encounter many obstacles on our way down, from waterfalls and rock walls to large boulders and deep rock pools. Challenge yourself to climb and abseil the cascading waterfalls and jump into the deep pools below!

Although challenging, you will be accompanied by a very experienced, passionate and personable guide who is 100% safety audit certified, making sure all adventurers feel safe and get the most out of each and every trip.

As we navigate our way downstream, we will reach the final waterfall which is home to thousands of twinkling glowworms. Cast your eyes around the rock face and revel in the magical luminescent display, before heading back to base to finish off an adventure to be remembered for a lifetime.

Meeting location: 33 Simon Road, Raglan 3225.

Good Times for All!

Took two of my friends from America with me, one of them absolutely loved it & the other couldn't wait for it to be over but still said she was so glad we went. Well worth going whether you are from NZ or abroad.

Thanks for your review Andre, stoked you all enjoyed it! You all did an amazing job. We love to push people out of their comfort zone and see them grow and hopefully that certainly happened that night for some of you! Thanks again, Harry

Great experience

I really recommend this activity to everyone. It was exciting to abseil on the waterfall - Ive done it for the first time, it was quite scarry. However, Kevin was a great instructor, explained everything very well and I felt safe with him. He also told us interesting stories while admiring walls full of glowworms (amazing views!). It was fun, 5/5 experience :)

Absolutely amazing

Last night we went on a canyoning trip with our guide Kevin(who also happens top be Dutch). It was a great experience. Good guidance and a lot of information during the trip. A little tea break with the magnificent sight of couple of hundred glowworms. An absolute must do If you are near Raglan.
