If you admire nature and are looking for a great time, don't miss this trip. The hike was invigorating, the scenery spectacular, the guides very friendly and experienced, and the descent exciting! This was my first canyoning experience and I loved everything about it, especially the incredible location and the amicable people I met. It was the best tour I... More

Our family (six adults, ages 27 to 72) had the most amazing time canyoning with AWOL. Truth be told, my parents (in their 60s and 70s) were a little nervous about going, but Javier could not have been more wonderful. He did a great job on the teaching portion and made us all feel very secure and comfortable. He was... More

The only bad thing i could think of is the walk up to the top but it is so worth the walk! After that, it's just fun fun fun!

Cam was a great guy and though the uphill wetsuit walk tuckered us out a bit sooner than expected, he was patient with us. It was an awesome experience, but a bit scary too. We really enjoyed being able to see more of the "inner realm" of NZ and its mountainous forests and waterfalls. Thank you again, Cam!

This is an awesome trip run by guys that really know what they are doing - we loved every second of it! The whole thing was made even more perfect by a cheeky little proposal by my other half at the top of one of the larger waterfalls. They guys running the trip were really helpful and gave him a...

We really enjoyed the day, it was exciting, an adventure, incredible sights and good experience. We are siblings with a fearless younger bro and older scaredy cat sis. The guide Connor looked after the girl really well, abseiling down with her in one section when she was too scared. There was a mixture of jumps, abseiling, walking and swimming, all... More

What an awesome day out with AWOL Canyoning. From the time I was picked until drop off, the team at AWOL looked after me very well. I did the Blue Canyon day trip, which included all the gear, training, beautiful walks into and out of the gorge, river and bush trekking, assailing down waterfalls, jumping into deep blue crystal clear...
