Canyoning is an adventure sport like no other - encounter zip-lines, waterfalls, rock jumps, natural rock slides, and much more!The half day canyon is located in fantastic wilderness environment 15 minutes from Queenstown. It is a naturally carved canyon fed by the crystal clear waters of a high alpine lake. This trip is great if you’re pressed for time but looking to squeeze in an adventure.

Canyoning is an amazing experience that really pushed me out of my comfort zone! Went with a friend while on holiday in NZ recently, and we both found it challenging yet very rewarding. Our guides, James and Jumbo, were fantastic. The views throughout the adventure are breathtaking! An absolute must-do. Tip - if you can, try and take an underwater... More

I spent 3 weeks in and around Queenstown, did many outdoor activities, and this was the highlight of my trip. Our Guides Dave and Katiana were wonderful and made my first time canyoning an enjoyable and safe experience. For me, this was better than the bungee and rope swing because the scenery was amazing and for the money this was... More

Had a really good experience. Guides were very knowledgable and skilled and a bit of fun. Double check times of tours with the shop as the website might sometimes be wrong. Only giving 4 stars cause they wanted to charge 40 dollars per person for two or three pictures of the day. That was way overpriced and obviously we did... More

The most fun adventure in NZ (only topped by skydiving, but its totally different). Absolutely awesome experience. My partner and I did the the queenstown half day, and loved it so much we booked the routeburn for the next day! We even considered doing another full day at dart canyon! Cannot recommend enough. Value for money on this one is... More

After doing a half day's canyoning we highly recommend this activity as something a bit different to do in Queenstown. We went in a group of about 8 people and everyone came away with the feeling it was one of the best experiences they had in New Zealand! The guides are friendly and professional, never forcing you to do any... More

I had heard how great this was from numerous people and it didnt disappoint. Excellent staff and even better day out. I will recommend to anyone I meet. Jumping off cliffs big and small in different fun ways, zip lining, abseiling and beautiful scenery all around you. What more could you want?! Thanks again for such a great day out.

Full day Routeburn trip was amazing! One of my favorite days in New Zealand.... Canyoning starts out with a hike up a mountain in a double layered wet suit, followed by cliff jumps, abseiling (that's Kiwi for rappelling), ziplining, rock climbing, swimming, and otherwise maneuvering going back down the mountain essentially following the path of a stream with many, many...

Most scary but the best adventure trip for us in NZ. Our tour guide was amazing, witty and very very helpful. I had a sore ankle and he took extremely good care of me throughout the canyoning experience... highly recommended activity in Queenstown!
