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.
