I did the blue canyon trip on Sunday and it was totally awesome from start to finish! The guides were fantastic, really funny and made everyone feel like great friends straight away. The canyon itself is absolutely stunning, the perfect surrounding for such a brilliant activity. There were loads of jumps - some pretty high! And the abseiling was great... More

Me and my husband went for a half day Piha trip through AWOL. The owner joined along with the guide as our group was in a hurry to catch the worlcup match after the trip. Both the guide & owner were really sweet people. Good to talk to and very helpful. I can tell there is nothing unsafe about this.... More

Its amazing that in only 40 mins outside Auckland that you can be in the deepest jungle trekking through the paths, jumping into pools and abseiling down waterfalls. Great high impact fun, run flawlessly by Cam and his crew. Highly recommend

I did the full day Piha trip, I've done canyoning before in Switzerland and this was pretty different. First the hike to the top is not by any means a leisurely stroll. It's about 20 of steep uphill walking. It's totally doable and worth the effort though. The Piha trip is more about repelling than jumps and slides (blue mountain... More

I took my boyfriend canyoning for his birthday and he loved it! It was such alot of fun - the guides were awesome, friendly, funny, and made you feel safe every step of the way. For me, being a little bit nervous it was very reassuring that the guides took the time to explain everything and made sure we were... More

Had a amazing experience absailing waterfalls and exploring canyons. I had no prior experience absailing however, after a tutorial from Cam I felt confident to embark on a experience to be remembered. Lunch and snacks were supplied across the day. I would highly recommend AWOL canyoning adventures. Simon

I was able to go on this adventure with my study abroad group. What I loved most were the tour guides! We were a very large group and all beginners, they were wonderful with directions and making this a great experience! I will never forget the guide Javier, who was a great motivator. Javier is who made this adventure one... More

My friend and I did Piha Canyon a couple weeks ago while staying in Auckland and it was awesome! It was my first time canyoning and I am so glad it was with AWOL. I had a prior injury that made me a little nervous, but we had emailed with Cam beforehand and he reassured me that they would be... More
