About this Canyon

From Torrent Bay we walk up the Cascade Falls track for about 1 hour. Then it’s time to get adventurous, we go off the beaten track through some seriously steep and challenging terrain for another hour to get to the top of the big waterfalls. We take a breather and grab a bite to eat before we take the plunge. It will take us about three hours to get through the wet ‘n wild world of Falls River. This canyon is filled with back to back challenging waterfall abseils, jumps, slides and fast floats. Then it’s time to unwind, we take the 45 minute walk back to Torrent Bay along Cascade Falls track… mostly downhill this time!

Option 1: Water Taxi - Canyoning - Floating Backpackers

Join us on a spectacular water taxi ride from Marahau to Torrent Bay. From there we’ll walk up the tracks to the top of the canyon. We descend the canyon and walk back out to Anchorage where we’ll board the Aquapackers, a floating backpackers hostel in the middle of picture perfect Anchorage. A lovely cooked BBQ, hot showers, tea & coffee, bedding and breakfast are all taken care off. The next day you can carry on exploring the Abel Tasman at your own leisure.

Option 2: Bare Canyoning Trip

This option works well if you have other adventures planned in the Abel Tasman National Park and would like to integrate an awesome canyoning trip along the way.

We will meet you on the beach at the water taxi drop off spot at Torrent Bay at 9:45am. From there we’ll walk up the tracks to the top of the canyon. We descend the canyon and walk back to Torrent Bay. Water taxi’s don’t pick up from Torrent Bay in the afternoon so you’ll have to organise another night in the park at either Torrent Bay or Anchorage.

Feel free to contact us to help you plan your Abel Tasman adventures.
