New Zealand Canyoning Festival 2018

A number of high quality canyons have been opened in the region this summer, ranging from V3A2 through to V6A4. There are now over 20 canyons spread across the Nelson Lakes, Abel Tasman, Mt Owen, and Richmond Range areas to explore. And some of the best canyons on the West Coast are only a few hours away. A pdf addition to the Canyoning in NZ Guidebook will be made available in the coming months.

The Festival format will be similar to the 2016 Festival, with a combination of workshops and hosted trips taking place. This Festival will last a little longer – in addition to the main function (Friday till Monday), there will be an informal get together on the Wednesday in the Abel Tasman area. Come for a whole week and make the most of it!

Local and international canyoners welcome. More details to follow in the next month.
