5 stars does not do this trip nor the guides (Wayne and Helen) justice. They deserve one million stars.... the setting is breathtaking, and participants are encouraged to push their own limits but are never forced to do anything with which they are uncomfortable. There were a few people who did every jump and plenty who didn't. Either way, everyone... More

This canyoning experience is not to be missed, especially if you're an outdoorsy kind of person and want to get amongst some unspoiled NZ nature! Wayne and Gav were fantastic the whole way through, taking our photos and making us laugh, and not to mention they are safety pros! My partner and I definitely felt we got our moneys worth,... More

The folks who run Canyonz are professionals who treat you to a terrific canyoning experience. I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone who loves the outdoors and has an appetite for adventure. It is a wonderful way to see a beautiful piece of New Zealand.

The canyon is stunning, Wayne and Helen our guides were great fun and good company, lucky because we were stuck with them all day, we felt really safe even when Wayne tried to scare the crap out of us. Well worth it, do it!

Everything aspect was well organised and we felt very safe throughout. The hike up was tiring, but definitely achievable. Our guides were very encouraging throughout the trip, which really help to motivate me during the hike. Although it was... More

These people are incredible! Not only do they take your life in their hands, but they manage to do it with the seriousness it deserves, but they also do it while making sure you have the time of your life. They made sure they knew everyone's name before we embarked and never stopped speaking encouraging words along the way. Their... More

Tramping (hiking), swimming, abseiling (rappelling) and jumping into stunning wilderness! Test your limits or just enjoy the exercise. Also a good lunch, barbecue at the end and interesting and talented guides. All the best of NZ!

The canyon itself is beautiful and going through it was a lot of fun. The crew of CanyoNZ was very dedicated to making sure we were enjoying the activities keeping things completely safe. Totally recommended

Superbly organised and wonderfully friendly. For anyone who likes a bit of adventure, this is it. The team take safety extremely seriously, but it still remains a real thrill. Can't fault them in any way.
