Canyoning in the Abel Tasman
This is one of our most popular activities that will test your personal limits, canyoning on the Torrent River!
As long as you can swim, are up for an adventure and enjoy challenging yourself and having fun, Torrent River Canyoning is definitely for you!
It's a packed day starting with a 7.30 am pick up. You'll go to Abel Tasman Canyoning base to meet the skilled and experienced crew, get geared up and before you know it, you'll be zipping into Abel Tasman National Park by boat along with your other Flying Kiwi friends. The boat ride alone is awesome - lots of beautiful coastal scenery to admire as you sit contemplating what you've actually signed up for! Abel Tasman Canyon crew have ensured the trip will blow you away and with that, you'll need to do a bit of a hike in before you start canyoning down a place that is remote and beautiful all in one!
Canyoning is epic and you certainly don't have to be experienced (as your leaders are so experience), you do need to be prepared to have lots of fun and definitely get wet. Talking from experience, I'm an avid Torrent River Canyon fan (tour guide for Flying Kiwi) - I've lost count how many times I've flopped, flipped, jumped and doggy paddled through that Torrent River Canyon - When you get a chance to stop in between canyoning, you really get to admire this remote and special canyon for all its beauty, clean waters, native forest certainly refreshingly cold water! (Don't worry though; the wetsuits are nice and thick)
After you've finished canyoning, you'll enjoy another short walk through the idyllic and golden Abel Tasman National Park. Back on the boat, heading out of the park and back to camp, you will feel accomplished, happy and ready for a hearty dinner and a good night's sleep!
