Fun trip! We wished we could’ve done even more repelling. This made us all excited to learn more about rock climbing. JP ( Guide) was very helpful in learning some techniques and giving us good advice for visiting Moraine Lake the next day.

Two of my best friends and I did the heli-canyoneering trip in June 2021. It was outstanding. The short flight provided us with the altitude we needed. This meant we did not have to pack gear up the trail for a few hours before beginning the fun. It took 20 minutes to walk from the heli landing site to the canyon. After that the second rappel was the big 60m drop with a waterfall pouring over you as you dangle in the air.

There were about 10-15 more rappels afterwards all of which had water rushing over you. It was technical (in a fantastic way) but not physically challenging. A lot of time was spent chilling and relaxing in the creek while the guide set up for each rappel. The wetsuits worked extremely well so we had the unparalleled experience of comfortably laying down in freezing water which is otherwise impossible. You could stay submerged for as long as you want without getting cold.

The canyon is a marvel. About 20 feet wide and hundreds of feet high.

The guides (JP Kors and Gerald) were exceptional. They spent a lot of time explaining to us the logic of the Rappel anchor set ups and the rope work which we were very curious to learn all about.

The equipment provided to us was clean and well maintained. This gave me a lot of confidence in the company from the outset before getting into the helicopter.

The lunch provided to us was delicious and a generous size.

It was certainly a top 2 mountain experience for me and I’ve had my share of mountain adventures over the past 20 years.

We went on the Aquatic Adrenaline tour. It was fantastic! Guillame lead us and trained us up the best safety components I have seen. I really enjoyed each part and it was great to put the swift water skills in action... which you can use in other adventures! The repel on the waterfall is amazing, and it only gets better jumping in the moving canyon water and floating and swimming with a purpose. Guillame paced everything out so that we could take a quick brake at anytime and was eager and really helped to bring out are abilities in an adventure! Thank-you and we look forward to future trips!

Awesome adventure day!

Our guide Katie did a perfect job of teaching us novices the key skills quickly and efficiently, leading the trip with a great pace, and showed us how to get the maximum fun out of each stage. She was awesomely humble and a total pro, with a great enthusiasm all along.

Gear provisions were spot on - everything we needed was ready on site, fit great, and worked just as planned.

A definite must-do for anyone that enjoys wilderness challenges!

Guillaume took us for an unforgettable trip through a fun canyon in the Canadian Rockies. I have lived and played in the mountains for years, but was exposed to a completely new kind of adventure. Smiles on our faces all day long through fun little features, and some that also pushed us to the edge of our comfort zone. It is easy to see our guide has a huge passion for this sport and is genuinely excited to share his knowledge and expertise with his clients for an exciting and memorable adventure. I have no doubt that I will return.

Really awesome experience. We went for my bachelor party and it was the highlight of the bachelor party. Incredible rapelling, incredible views and the chopper ride to the top of the mountain was really cool. Everything was planned well. Definitely worth the money to go on a trip with this company and I am recommending it to everyone I know who is up for an adventure.

Did the Kelowna Canyoning tour and had a great time! It was a solid four hours, with about 75% of that actually spent at and in the canyon. We were lowered down a waterfall, two ziplines (one of which was very long!) and had the opportunity to go splash around at the end of the canyon, aka jump off into the river and slide down the rapids. Our guide, Matt, made sure to explain everything to us and always asked if we were comfortable for each jump. Was a ton of a fun, but just be aware that you will be wet and chilly by the end (but still totally worth it!). A bonus was our group was small - only me and my friends.

Our guide Matt was knowledgeable and thorough with his preparation of the route. Seemed like the entire group of 7 had an amazing time. I sure did! Some of the obstacles seems pretty daunting but once Matt talks you through it they're just exciting and fun! Thanks Matt!!

Visiting Kelowna for the first time in awhile and this was DEFINITELY the highlight of our trip. Its so unique in and of itself and the trills are so worth it. The tour guide, Matthew, was very well versed in what he was doing and his knowledge of the land was outstanding. I will totally be doing this again in the rockies with Matt or one of his partner companies!

Phenomenal experience! Adventure and adrenaline are the right words to describe this amazing time! We hiked up between 2 moutains that joined to 1 main canyon & 2 canyons that joined the main.

We went rappelling, which is using rope, harness & carabiners to lower yourself down waterfalls.

My friends and I got to slide down natural waterfall slides!

Thank you to our guide & the owner of the company Guillaume! We were so lucky to have him teach us patiently, encourage & support us. I personally felt very safe while rappelling down, even though I'm not a strong swimmer and was a little scared =)

Perfect weather last Saturday (24 degrees celsius), awesome company & great fun!
