Canyoning with Big Rock Adventures embraces the ideals of participating in your own adventure. We take care of the safety and put you out there onto the edge of a waterfall... once you're there, take a calming breath… then, you can either abseil, slide, zipline or just jump off of it!
TUI CANYON (5hrs)
This is the perfect place to start your canyoning adventures. A “park and play" classic with only a short 5 mins walk through beautiful beech forest to access the stream. We enter the main canyon by abseiling down into the gorge below, then we hike, jump, swim, slide and fly through the air on a zipline to get back out.
KAUMIRA CANYON (8hrs)
Kaumira begins with a spectacular 4WD trip through private farmland with views all over the Canterbury plains. Numerous jumps, slides, abseils and ziplines make up the 5 hour round trip descent. If you love water sports and you are comfortable with heights, this will likely be one of the best things you will ever do!
TRIFALLS CANYON (10hrs)
One day, two canyons! A huge day out as we descend drop after drop from a sub alpine landscape down Trifalls Canyon into Woolshed Creek far below. Hiking up in the sunshine, abseiling down towering volcanic cliffs then jumping into a smooth sandstone slot canyon below. A unique experience.
