  • 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!
