Coming from overseas, I was really disappointed. not only I couldn't experience the sleeping God canyon, they didn't tell me that the trip got cancelled till 1day before, after I've made pre-arrangements to fly in just so I can attend.More

Hi, apologies for not being able to give you more notice of cancellation. Unfortunately New Zealand weather rarely offers us that luxury during the winter months especially - we obviously will not operate in a flooding canyon. We hope you found some other exciting activities...More
