Fun, exciting, and stunningly beautiful. The best places are often the hardest to get to , but if getting there means jumping, sliding, zip lining or abseiling down cliffs and waterfalls then that's a bonus! Great guides. Fantastic day.

I can't recommend this highly enough. Diana and Rick went above and beyond their duty of canyon experts to make us feel safe and happy. Their customer service was exceptional and it was definitely worth the money. The canyoning itself was so much fun. As someone who has never done anything like it before, I didn't really know what to expect but I did not stop smiling all day and for many days after! We got to try out so much from abseiling, to sliding down rocks and jumping off cliffs. And to make it even better we got photos included free so I have been able to relive the experience over and over. The lunch and snacks were also a brilliant bonus to the day! Thank you so much again Abel Tasman Canyons.

Fantastic day! Whether you have been abseiling before or not, put this on your adventure list. Riki and Diana were outstanding guides. They handled the entire group really well - from experienced "canyoners" to one woman who was terrified at the first abseil. Fun to watch how she got bolder as the day went on with encouragement from the entire group. By the end of the day the entire team had a great time and adventure. Highly recommend it and would not hesitate to do it again on my next visit to New Zealand!

This was absolutely the highlight of our two week trip to New Zealand. After reading the reviews, we decided to change our trip itinerary around just so we could go to Abel Tasman to do the Torrent River canyoning trip and it was SO WORTH IT! Ricky and Diana are awesome guides! They are funny, knowledgable, and super accommodating. Not only is the whole experience a thrill, the surroundings are insanely beautiful! I have done canyoning in the North Island and while that was a great experience, it didn't compare to the exhilaration and extreme fun that we had on this canyoning trip. I highly recommend Abel Tasman Canyons! DOOOOO IT, you won't be disappointed!

In New Zealand my Mrs and I did jet boating, bungee jump, river surfing and rafting along with horse riding, winery and brewery tours. The Abel Tasman Canyon day trip was clearly the best day out. Start with a relaxing scenic water taxi ride, a walk up the hill to get you warm and ready to jump in cool water, then a full day of laughter and excitement. Our group got on so well we all went back to the local pub for a few drinks. Great Day!
