In my group was 3 friends of differing opinions on the idea of canyoning; one was very keen, one was impartial and the last was dragged under peer pressure. At the end of the day we ALL said what an awesome day it had been, haven't laughed so much in ages. It was like being a kid again in a... More

An awesome experience! Worth every cent! This was one of the stand out highlights of our 3wk NZ holiday. Koryn guided my son (aged 10), husband and me through Tui Canyon. None of us had done canyoning before. Koryn's attentiveness, enthusiasm, professionalism and expertise were outstanding. The canyon was beautiful and doing the jumps, slides, abseiling and flying fox was... More

I have did canyoning in Chile and Slovenia, and I really liked this one as you did a lot of different styles of de-sending down the canyon. Nice variety and always changing. A great way to spend a full day of adventure. The road up the farmer's pasture hill aka goat trail and along with a great view at the... More

If you are up for true heart pounding adventure and experiencing life to the fullest then Big Rock Canyons is for you. I did both tours ‘Kaumira - The Big One’ and ‘Tui’ and recommend them both. The one from Christchurch is more accessible for non-sporty people – think of it as a stroll down a wild and beautiful river,... More

An amazing canyon is hidden somewhere in the Caterbury region. Not only was I stunned about the views, the action in the canyon was the best of any canyon I have ever done. The 2 guides were absolute pro's! A must do in New Zealand!

Yes it... More

On the morning we set out with Big Rock Canyons, I didn’t know exactly what to expect. So sliding down unspoiled waterfalls, abseiling past canyon caves and zip-lining down the even bigger drops - whilst exploring the concealed beauty of Kaumira Canyon, all came as pleasant surprises. A fantastic thrill pumped day, with optional free-falling cliff jumps into natural pools... More

This is my third trip to New Zealand's South Island but first time embarking on a canyoning adventure! It was incredible! Koryn and Grants professionalism, expertise, and passion for canyoning are undeniable and their quick wit and infectious humor make the trip even more exciting! Before entering the canyon, Koryn and Grant explained safety protocol, proper jump/slide form and a... More

I work as a tour guide myself so I can have really high standards when it's my turn to be the tourist, but this operation blew me away! Koryn and Grant were professional, friendly, chatty, enthusiastic and extremely passionate about canyoning, I can't fault the trip at all! We met the guys at the Geraldine information centre and drove to... More

I do not have much time in Christchurch so i would like to do something that is not too expensive and could cover as much as possible. I decided to pick Canyon over sky dive as it is a day activity compare to sky dive which is few minutes. My decision was right. I was pick up from Christchurch at... More
