Experience adrenaline filled action as you jump into pools, slide down chutes and abseil/rappel down rocks and waterfalls. The beautiful deep green forest of Tui canyon gives a feeling of being back in nature as you travel through the narrow gorge. Training outside the canyon will be given prior to going into the water. The first waterfalls are ideally small enough for participants to practice and fine-tune abseiling/rappelling, sliding and jumping techniques to ensure the right comfort levels for the bigger drops. All waterfalls can be passively navigated where the guide can lower participants who feel over challenged by the rush of the water around them.
With only a ten minutes walk from the carpark, this trip is a great place to start your canyoning adventures.
Suitable ages 11-12 and above, under 16 conditions apply.
