Canyoning is an adventure sport like no other! This is the perfect balance of rocks ropes and rivers. Embrace the stunning beauty of your surrounds and conquer the fun challenges of a descent through the narrow walls of the canyon. Encounter zip lines, waterfalls, rock jumps, deep pools, natural water-slides and much more!

Your adventure begins just 15mins scenic drive from Queenstown in a fantastic wilderness environment; a naturally carved high-walled canyon fed by the crystal clear waters of a high alpine lake, tucked away secretly below a canopy of ancient beech forest. Welcome to Natures Waterpark and the experience of a lifetime!

Accompanied by our expert guides you will discover the pure exhilaration of canyoning. Zip-line below the forest-canopy, plunge into crystal clear pools, float through narrow passageways, abseil over waterfalls - with every turn uncovering a new adventure and natural wonder.

The Queenstown canyon half-day trip is suitable for first-timers to adventure seekers and is a great option for groups and team building. No previous experience is required, however you do need to be an active person in good health.

Each trip is customized specific to the group and weather conditions. A full briefing and demonstration is given before each activity in the canyon.

Awesome and fun canyoning experience!

Had a really cool, fun and amazing time with our canyoning guides rach & melissa during our half day canyoning trip! We were really lucky that there were only the 5 of us for the 830am slot where we had plenty of time to carry out the activities. We did abseiling, zipline, several pool jumps/dives and also walk down the icy cold waters of the canyon. We also tried to find some gold among the rocks! xD All equipments are provided, from wetsuits, helmet, harness, wetsocks and boots. Photos taken are available at the price of 40bucks which i got them because some are really well taken of me jumping into the water and also I got this tour at a discounted price so I had spare money to purchase the photos. If you have a gopro, they provide free gopro mounts on the helmet. There is also hot shower available after the activity and some hot chocolate/coffee! Really superb tour and thank you Rach and melissa for showing us the great wonders of canyoning and also keeping us safe! :)

Awesome

Amazing experience! Friendly and experienced instructors! =) As our group was relatively small, we managed more activities than usual, making our money spent more worth!
