Some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen! The crew was incredibly helpful, giving us step by step instructions the whole time. We repelled down 4 waterfalls and trekked through the New Zealand wilderness all while being constantly entertained by our guides. They picked us up near our hotel, provided drinks, snacks and lunch and then dropped us... More

I say that in advance because I'm going to be upfront and honest about some of the difficulties and athletic abilities (which I don't have) that this tour requires, but that I in NO WAY mean it as a deterrent, as I...

If you are the least bit adventurous and in Auckland you should 100% go Canyoning. We did the full day at Piha beach and it was phenomenal. The bus comes and gets you in the city and takes you out to the shed to get changed in to wet suits. There are public bathrooms if you need to change there.... More

Had a great first experience canyoning at the Piha trip with Elise as our guide! She was great, provided lots of options to suit everyone and made it a lot of fun. Was awesome abseiling down large waterfalls and jumping into the water, would highly recommend to anyone visiting Auckland.

Aimed at inexperienced people and offers great intro into what canyoning is all about. You abseil down long waterfalls, slide down rocks and jump into pool holes. Highly recommended!
