Akatarawa Canyoning Trip

Half Day Canyoning Trip

The adventure begins with a thorough safety briefing including a demonstration on how to rappel /abseil a rope followed by a 20 minute walk along an old logging track into the Akatarawa forest where the first feature of the Little Akatarawa Canyon tour begins.

An exciting zipline into the Little Akatarawa canyon followed by four waterfall descents repelling/abseiling by rope into the heart of the canyon, we lower you through the first waterfall to get you comfortable in the environment then if you are confident and want to do an independent abseil our experienced team of guides are there for support to coach you through the activity making sure you are safe and having fun.

Wading through a shallow creek and jumping from height into fresh pristine water (optional) is so much fun and the scenery is truly an experience to remember, the Little Akatarawa Canyon has got to be the greatest little hidden gem in the Wellington region being only a 40 minute drive from the CBD we are so lucky to have such a cool adventure on the doorstep of the capital city, Wellington.
