You will not regret going on this trip, it really should be on everyone’s bucket list. My sister and I had an amazing time and laughed and smiled the whole day, we are still buzzing days later from the whole experience. We completed the 'Big One' and were very lucky to get it all to ourselves. The canyon is beautiful... More

Thanks to Koryn, Rich and Sebastian for making it such a fantastic experience! It was an absolutely awesome day, made even better by our guides who gave me loads of encourgement. A group of 6 of us went and it was a brilliant group experience, really varied and fun. A delicious lunch was provided to keep us going. Thoroughly recommend... More

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!

don't be scared off by the price - it is definitely worth it... canyoning as such is awesome, the canyon you'll get in here is something special, but the service and personal touch created by the guides is UNIQUE thanks corin and raime (i hope i spelled your names correctly) for the amazing day cathi and I had.
