KAUMIRA CANYON (8hrs)
Kaumira canyon is downhill all the way with more jumps, more ziplines, more slides and more abseils than any other canyon in NZ!
The canyon itself is hidden in the hills between Geraldine, Timaru and Lake Tekapo (about an hours drive from each). Though our office and gear shed are in Geraldine, we often meet self driving guests near to the canyon to save lots of unnecessary driving so please contact us prior to booking to organise this.
We also offer a pick up in Christchurch and Lake Tekapo (just tell us where to pick you up when you book).
Once at the Mt Nimrod DoC reserve, we load up onto a 4WD side by side and travel 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!
