Great thing to do in Queenstown and see the surrounding countryside. It was a little more extreme than I had expected but there is always the option to by pass some of the higher jumps. On the whole it is a grant day out but expect the get the odd bruise!

I had such a great day canyoning. I wasnt fond of water nor the feeling of falling, but the team were really friendly and i wanted to test myself. There were options on the half day to not jump, but everyone as a team supported and cheered on, and the staff were professional and you felt safe. Thanks guys i... More

Sun was shining, blood was pumping. Got our wetsuits on (which are a god send because otherwise that water is bone chilling). Started off with a couple of ziplines which was unexpected and fun! Beautiful surroundings, but what made it truly awesome were the guides! I did this trip alone, but never once felt left out or bored. This trip... More

So we decide to sign up for an adventure day. The pictures and videos are like any other extreme adventure, it looks like fun and something so unique, you could only do it on vacation. One of the adventures we were seeking here when planning our trip was canyoning and thought we were going to do it in Auckland. We... More

Awesome morning, our guides Shane and Hitoshi were excellent. I had never been canyoning before so I wasn't quite sure what to expect but the boys really looked after us. Will definitely do this again!!

Queenstown Canyoning: What an afternoon! Starting with a breathtaking short scenic drive out to the HQ and down to the start of the course we were quickly into our 'getup' and ready to rumble. Throughout the course we were expertly guided by the extremely friendly and crazy (Frazy) staff, ziptrekin', abseiling, cliff jumping and the rest. Want to blow those... More

We had the most amazing day out on the Queenstown adventurer trip. If you want value for money and a epic action packed day, then canyoning is the way to go! Abseiling, rock jumps off waterfalls, ziplines across forest and huge chasms, sliding down rock pools and a bit of swimming thrown in as well. And to top it off,... More

What an amazing afternoon with the Canyoning crew! A must do while in Queenstown! I did the Queenstown canyon half day trip, zip-lining, abseiling, sliding over rocks and cliff jumping! What I liked about the trip is that from the start the guides made you feel so at ease, and during the trip with each activity they explained in detail... More
