  • Make sure to book a trip with Mikey as your guide! Best time ever :-) We did the Niger stream, it was a good challenge as it was our first time canyoning.  more »
  • Standing at the top of the first waterfall of the Niger Stream Trip and looking down into the deep abyss all I could think of were the words spoken by John Cleese from Monty Python, “Now for something...  more »
  • We have booked the day trip on the Niger stream and we are thrilled! We had a small group with Mike, our guide. We are highly first hiked a mountain and above arrived at the Canyon Adventure went off then. I thought that I would die at the first big slide but in the end it was a unique experience. Mike made this class and we had lots of fun. I think it's also great that you get photos and videos for little money.

  • A great selection of adventures for all ability levels. Wife and I did an entry level tour - I loved it, she hated it. Really only for those who don't mind a bit of discomfort in order to existing the adrenaline. They have experienced guides and well maintained routes and equipment. Water can be very cold so a thermal top is a good idea, especially in winter.
  • Incredibly fun and perfectly challenging. Mike was an AMAZING guide!
  • Love this so much. Worth to try not just once!! Thank you Mike, u are such a great guide
  • My partner and I decided last minute to do this. It was amazing from start to finish. Our guide Bryce was fantastic. A member of our group was very scared but he helped her through the day. She was so happy that she done it at the end. We done theor introductory trek, which had high abseiling and a choice of different height jumps. I would recommend this company! It is good value for your money. You get an entire day trip.
  • A awesome adventure! The guide was patient and kind. This is a good place for a good canyoning. But if you don't like heights be careful!
