This was our first adventure in NZ. We enjoyed it so much. Cam was great to us. We fitted for wetsuits after meeting him at the little store. Yes, they were hot and stiff to walk in, but we had never used wetsuits before. We rode to the park site to embark upon the trail. We did take breaks, and... More

Was visiting Auckland with my 13 year old son. We decided to do adventure together and chose AWOL based on previous TripAdvisor ratings. Simply put, our expectations were exceeded: safe but challenging abseiling and canyoning, spectacular scenery, informative guide and great father-son bonding. Highly recommended.

This was an amazing experience and one of the best days of my life. Cam was such an accommodating and knowledgeable person who takes you through an exhilarating canyon trip. So much beautiful scenery, abseiling down and swimming under waterfalls. If you have not done this and are considering it, just do it! You will not regret it!

We had a really great time in the canyon. Beautiful sceneries, lot of fun. The guide was nice and patient (as I was the slowest one in the group). Good experience, we recommend it :)

It's hard to believe you're only 40 minutes from Auckland city. The scenery is beautiful and the experience exhilarating. Cam is a patient and knowledgable guide whose reassuring coaxing could get the most fearful person to jump off a cliff. I will be back again.

I loved this experience so much, Cam is such a fun person, he really helps you feel confident and safe. I am in Auckland for work and I cant do much, but this trip makes me feel like I am getting to know a bit of new Zealand and getting out of the city. He picks you up from the... More

A must do. Loved every min of it, maybe except the upslope part... Trekked upslope for about half hour, beautiful scenery and into nature. Abseiling down cliffs and waterfalls, jumping into pools, lovely experience.

Cam picked us up from the Sky Tower and took me and my friend for the full day trip. We had a great time and appreciated the training from Cam before we began our descent. I can't say enough good things about Cam's professionalism and patience with us. A must-do for locals and visitors alike.

It was a great adventure. Initially I did not dare to make the jumps, but seeing how much fun it was for others, I also tried and it was surprisingly enjoyable! Highly recommended if you like abseiling too. However, you do need a moderate level of fitness to get through the hikes and trekking across the forest.
