No matter how high you set your expectations, this will beat them! We packed a lot in to our trip to New Zealand - kayaking, caving, the Alpine Crossing, glacier hikes, but nothing topped this day in the Coromandel. Challenging, exhausting, exhilarating, this is what we remember and talk about most. Russ and Wayne, our tireless and outstanding guides, kept... More

I'd always thought there could be nothing that could top Skydiving on my list of exciting adventures.... until now. I can not speak highly enough of the team at Canyonz.

Shuks! Thanks for compliments and glad to hear you felt safe, challenged and you probably should feel a little scared at times but knowing you can move through the fear. Its a great feeling, "I think"! So keep challenging yourself and 'liven up yourself'. More

At times it was exhausting, terrifying and exhilarating, but looking back on the day it was a superb experience. The walk up is a pretty amazing start to the day of being in the beautiful NZ bush - and does require a reasonable level of fitness. From there the crazy adventure kicks in - such beautiful locations, extreme adventure and... More

Thanks for the review, always appreciated! We have been lucky enough to have had great people into great adventures that is canyoning so makes our job as guides so much easier. The Sleeping God canyon can be terrifying albeit exhilarating and soo much fun that we think it is a bucket list activity. Thanks again and keep adventuring! More

First of all, when in New Zealand, you'll see a number of canyoning company's. Make sure you book with Canyon NZ!!! They are simply amazing, and the sleeping god canyon is simply breath taking.

Absolutely amazing! Russ and Helen were fantastic guides, they knew a lot about the area, and obviously the sport. They were fun and relaxed. We felt safe in their hands at all times. I could not recommend this day out enough. Definitely worth the money. The experience will stay with us forever. Thank you!
