Awesome experience! We were a group of Danes who studied in Auckland so it was nice with pick up straight from downtown Auckland. Some really great abseiling especially! The crew was funny and friendly! I would really recommend this trip! We were going in beginning of August and it was a little cold, but it was nothing that ruined our... More

Three of us arrived in Auckland and booked a full day Piha Canyoning adventure with Cam. The trip far exceeded our expectations and was an adventure filled day. This was by far our favorite activity around Auckland. Canyoning is far more exciting and action packed than any of us had anticipated, but we felt completely safe and in good hands... More

Canyoning with AWOL was an absolute blast. The terrain you get to explore is absolutely unreal. Cam was a great guide who was friendly and extremely knowledgeable and safety oriented. Having worked in the guide business the past few years, let me tell you, AWOL is a class A guide service! Worth every penny! The Piha canyon half day was... More

This was the best tour of my trip by far. The place where they took us was amazing, it's called Piha. The guides were really fun and always caring about our safety. Also gave us very good brief training before starting the activity. Definitely recommend it!

Went in not really knowing what to expect and far surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. Want to do this every weekend it I could! Night canyoning was a completely surreal experience would definitely advise doing it!

Canyoning was by far the best way to begin our trip to New Zealand! Conor was a fantastic guide to take me and two friends for a full day through Piha Canyon. We went in June, and it wasn't too cold. The wetsuits definitely keep you warm in the water. As someone who isn't typically coordinated or necessarily athletic, canyoning... More
