LEAP OFF cliffs (or not... that's optional), and slide down natural waterslides into crystal pools. Eat good food, make some friends and walk away with memories that last a lifetime.

awesome experience, Anna and Wayne were so helpful. equipment's were perfect for activity and we enjoyed the whole experience with our limited skills in water ( swimming). people with relatively fit and have limited skill of swimming would find the activity a one kind of experience with lots of thrill. must do. we did half day activity.

Great time canyoning the Sleeping Gods canyon near Thames. Excellent guides and equipment, great information about the area as well as instruction and support.

I did the “Uenuku Falls Halfie” trip with my two young adult daughters. It was a fantastic day out and I would say it is one of the best outdoor activities I’ve ever done with my family. Four abseils, including over and down into waterfalls, water jumps and wading through rivers and streams, and tramping in the bush. This tour was perfect for us, and our guide Wayne was amazing. It is professionally and safely run but all the adventure you want is there, too. All the gear we needed was supplied, as was a good lunch and snacks. Also—and importantly for memories--lots of high-quality photos are taken during the tour and these are sent to you free of charge! Very much appreciated. In addition to challenging ourselves to try new things and the thrills involved, the waterfalls we encountered along the way were beautiful and can only be experienced if you do Canyonz tour. NZ tourism needs our support now and this would be the perfect family activity to do with kids who are teens or young adults, or as a couple or with friends. Thanks to Wayne and everyone.

Wow, what an amazing day. I shouted my son for his 25th birthday and got to experience this adventure too. It really taught me that I can do anything and it certainly was challenging. A full day of adrenaline! The guides were amazing, allowing us to take our time, never rushing, but all very safe. Loved it, and the burger at the end topped the day off. Thanks team Canyonz, highly recommend this adventure to anyone who want to experience something unique and amazing and you get to see our beautiful country.

My girlfriend and I had an epic day doing the full day Sleeping God trip. Not only did we abseil down waterfalls, the trip included epic jumps, slides and ziplines too. The guides (Anna and Wayne) were amazing - both encouraging, nurturing and also upholding safety.

I really appreciated the extra touches throughout this experience - making sure we all had good fitting gear, providing snacks and lunch and cooking up hot burgers afterwards too. The photos that are taken throughout the day and shared afterwards are a great keepsake of all the excitement and adrenaline rushes you're getting throughout the day. A really well thought out experience and a must-do for those seeking adventure. You get to experience and see a part of NZ not many others will get to- a real treat. 100% recommend doing this!!!

Wayne and Anna are simply awesome!!!!... we all loved it from start to finish. Their experience and expertise are second to none and we all felt they stepped into the role as Cheif Encouragement Officers with excellence. There were moments of fear!.. I mean why wouldn't there be looking over a 30m and then an 80m drop?! the 10 m and 15m jumps. The good old Critter brain started telling us all what the 'F' are you doing?...trying to keep us all safe... but listening to the expert instruction we walked through fear and did it anyway - guided by Wayne and Annas nurturing approach.
It's a full day and some level of fitness required - go in thinking i can do it - because you can - what's even more special - they are both beautiful humans and real fun to hang out with. We would all go back and do it again!

The entire experience was superb. I bought the experience as a gift for my daughter & daughter in law. Without really knowing what we were in for we ended up experiencing some great bush & river walking, & then on the the descent, abseiling the waterfalls, swimming in the pools, it all added up to a wonderful & unique opportunity to be immersed in some of the beauty this land has to offer. Anna our guide was also not only a great support but also just a damn fine person to spend a few hours with.
