- Canyoning, although well established overseas, is relatively new in New Zealand. Participants travel down a stream by means of a combination of abseiling, sliding and jumping off waterfalls. The venue is the Blue Canyon, in the Waitakere Ranges on the rugged West Coast. The adventure takes all day - you will get your money's worth. After a half-hour hike to the stream, there are 15 waterfalls ranging from two to 25 metres in height to be negotiated. Other trips visit the Coromandel Peninsula. All equipment (including wetsuits), food and transport is provided. Training in abseiling is also given.
