Not only a mean course with spectacular abseils, slides and jumps, but also the professional guides, the free pictures and even the bad jokes were much appreciated! If you're up for an adventure and some good fun, I would strongly recommend canyonz. Definitely bucketlist-material if you ask me. Thank you Canyonz!!

It was about a 1.5 hr drive from Auckland to our pick up stop in Thames. Were greeted by kind enthusiastic staff (Terry and Wayne). It was about a 30-40 minute drive from there. We pulled over and tried on some gear for sizing. I know their website said to bring a dry set of clothes, but I felt they... More

Canyonz, Owner at Canyonz, responded to this review

Firstly, Thank you for your honest review. I am sorry for the longer than planned duration and that you missed your planned restaurant dinner. As I'm sure you can imagine - it's very difficult to know what timings to give people as in our experience if you advertise an 8:30pm finish time and then you're back at 5:30pm people feel... More

I never write reviews about anything but Canyonz is definitely worthy of one. This was one of the best experiences I had while in New Zealand. You would do yourself an injustice not to book with Canyonz! It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. Russ and Ryan were terrific! They treated us more like family... More

Canyoning Sleeping God Canyon with Wayne and Russ was the most challenging and rewarding outdoor adrenaline activity I've ever done. It was so much more than I ever imagined. The best money I've ever spent and the absolute best way to experience New Zealand in my opinion. If you are fit and love to push yourself beyond your limits this... More

I have no idea why I did this activity but I do not regret finishing it! Before coming to Hamilton, we have already done the Blackwater Rafting, Waitomo Cave and the Auckland Sky Dive and a lot of hikes- but nothing prepared me for this. Gosh, I used to abseil when I was younger but under a waterfall? into the... More

I had no knowledge of what canyoning was but was familiar with rappelling and wearing a harness. The challenges of this activity pushed the walls of my comfort zone but I never felt at risk. Russ and Ryan were excellent, knowledgeable and personable guides. The group was small and intimate. Lunch on the edge of the falls was amazing. An... More

We were unsure what exactly to expect from this trip, other than abseiling and water. It turned out to be a great day though, an early start with a hint of lingering jet lag had me wondering how up for the day I would be but these thoughts were brushed away when our guides turned off the main road and...
