Absolutely fantastic day out. Just the right balance of challenge and fun. Loved making the big jumps! Russell and Wayne do an amazing job; highly recommended for anyone who's up for an adventure while being completely safe, as you're with real experts. Great way to see a beautiful part of this stunning country. Kevin Bowler, Chief Executive, Tourism New Zealand.

Awesome fun. An amazing day of action packed adventure, sights and friends. We came through as a large group of 17 and Russ was amazingly accommodating, even though we had to change our dates last minute he made sure we could still come and experience the canyon. The canyon itself was fantastic and the crew made sure that we had... More

I did the Sleeping God canyon with Russ and Ryan over the weekend and these guys are probably some of the best guides in NZ. They're so professional and efficient but super fun and keen to get to know you, something few adventurous guides can do. I do a bit of recreational canyoning back home and I see a lot... More

The hardest part is the hike to the top but once there you realize you are in one of the most stunning parts of the country. You get some practice runs on low sloping rocks to check your experience and... More

Sleeping Gods canyon is a challenging adventure in a stunning setting. Russ and Wayne are seasoned professionals who have love to share the joy and thrill of canyoning. Spending 6 hours in a waterfall with this crew leaves a beaming smile on your dial.
