Project Description


Canyonz is ranked one of the top activities in New Zealand on and received a certificate of excellence three years in a row. This is truly Canyoning New Zealand style! Perhaps the biggest, most exciting and challenging adventure activity in New Zealand, it is an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime.


The Sleeping God canyon tour is a vertical descent of over three hundred metres down a steep set of waterfalls involving abseils/rappels of up to 80 metres, exhilarating water slides and jumps as high as 14 metres into deep dark pools which are guaranteed to thrill the most intrepid explorer! You will be challenged to do things that you may have never believed you would ever do, however, this does have the consequence of a positively mind-blowing and unforgettable day out!

With professional canyoning guides and small groups, this is the ultimate canyoning experience and it doesn't get any better than this! The tour is aimed at people with a real taste for adventure and a good level of fitness (comparable to a day of hiking). Big jumps are optional. Abseils/rappels are not.


Canyonz is located near Thames in the dramatic Kauaeranga Valley on the Coromandel Peninsula.
