Myself and my husband Ross set up CNZ so we could share our passion of canyoning. We have concessions in multiple canyoning locations to suit the beginner or the experienced adventure seeker!

This is a great way to see a really awesome part of New Zealand and take part in an interactive adventure!

Really good afternoon trip out for 2 of us. Really enjoyed it from start to finish. The guide knew exactly what he was doing. Its just a shame we didnt have time to do the full day trip.

I was a little terrified given canyoning brings together two of my biggest fears but Ross was super welcoming and made us feel so comfortable! I would recommend to anyone travelling to Queenstown and will def be back!

Amazing opportunity! Good for thrill seekers too. Would recommend a full day if you have the time because at the end you will want to go again.

This experience was good fun, but hard work at times and a bit challenging, both physically and mentally. Even the 2, 19 year old men said they were surprised at the challenge. (We are very fit 59 year olds). I would suggest anyone who goes has a pretty good level of fitness and sense of adventure. Having said that, it’s a great outdoor experience and our guide was great! Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to really get in there.
