We start this canyoning adventure from central Christchurch OR for those who are touring, the Tui canyon is a short drive off the routes to and from Arthurs Pass and Kaikoura.
Following the safety brief and training, we start by sliding down into the first of many cool clear pools, the feeling of commitment as you realise there’s only one way out now which is to following the natural flow of the stream as it snakes its way towards the main gorge below.
We enter the main canyon in classic canyoning style by abseiling down into the wind and spray below, then from there, we must slide, jump and fly through the air on a zipline to get back out again.
Suitable ages 8-12 and above, under 16 conditions apply
