Abel Tasman Canyons provides exciting guided canyoning trips in the popular Abel Tasman National Parks, the wild and remote Kahurangi National Park and the more accessible Mt Richmond Forest Park. We take you to our stunning places and help you to take a step (or two) out of your comfort zone. Slide down water polished chutes, jump into crystal clear pools and abseil through showering waterfalls.

Highly recommend canyoning outing with Abel Tasman Canyons. They were super professional and emphasized safety but also let us have a great time. Canyoning itself was the right balance of thrill without being overly dangerous. Included some good 8-10 meter jumps + a delicious lunch....More

We did the one day Waterfall Creek canyoning with Abel Tasman Canyons and it was one of my best experiences in NZ. It was definitely challenging but well worth the effort (and money). Not only do you get crazy slides, jumps, rappels, you also get...More

Fantastic day. You wouldn’t be able to do a trip like this in the US as it would be considered too “risky”. Great day. Did some amazing things - rappelling, zip lining, jumping off really high cliffs! Mitch was a great guide. Thanks!!

Hi Michele, thank you for your question. The highest jump in our most popular canyon Torrent River is 8m. A good thing to know is that the jumps or slides are always optional. If it looks a little bit too high or too scary... More
