Kaumira canyon is located between Geraldine, Timaru and Lake Tekapo (about an hours drive from each).  Though our office and gear shed are in Geraldine, we often meet guests at the canyon and offer a pick up in Christchurch and Lake Tekapo (just tell us where when you book).
We gear up at the Mt Nimrod DoC reserve, then we load up onto a 4WD side by side and drive up through the adjoining mountain farm station searching for wallabies bouncing around the bush and taking in incredible views all over the Canterbury plains, as far as you can see along the Southern Alps and out over the ocean as far as Banks Peninsula.
Technical and safety training are completed once at the stream, then we just start following the water down stream, all the way back to the carpark were we began!  The tour is downhill all the way with more jumps, more ziplines, more slides and more abseils than any other trip in NZ.
