Abel Tasman National Park Canyoning Trips

While most people go to Abel Tasman National Park to relax in its peaceful environment, some people seek a more exciting trip. The national park might not be the most popular spot for New Zealand adventure-seekers, it definitely doesn’t disappoint if you’re craving for an adrenaline-pumping getaway. Our Abel Tasman National Park Canyoning trips take you to different sections in the park depending on your ability level – abseil, jump, float, slide, and swim – you name it! 

The Torrent River is a granite canyon filled with the purest water and surrounded by gorgeous, unspoiled rainforest. Waterfall Creek is a remote place where you need to wade across a river and climb a hill before you begin the actual trip. It’s one of the most challenging canyoning trips in the country!

Other trips include a to Blue Creek Canyon in nearby Kahurangi National Park, that is mainly dry, and includes loads of abseiling. For those looking for plenty of jumps and swims, then the sinisterly named Doom Creek Canyon in Richmond Forest near Nelson is a great option.

Your guides will also give you bonus commentary while you’re enjoying the activities. There is so much more you can do around Abel Tasman. Check out all our packages!
