Step outside your comfort zones and see what all the hype is about! Experience the lower section of the Sleeping God Canyon in the Coromandel's Kauaeranga Valley during this half day experience, jam packed with waterfalls, abseils, jumps and swims.
Departing from Thames, this half day canyoning adventure at the Sleeping God Canyon in the Coromande's Kauaeranga Valley will leave you feeling completely knackered, with your adventure barometer spilled over, belly satisfied (lunch is included), happy and feeling like you did something pretty amazing!
You’ll hike up to the start point of your canyoning adventure where you ditch the bags and get into the canyoning gear - a wetsuit, harness and helmet. With your excitement and nerves building, you’ll head off adventuring down the canyon. There’s waterfalls to explore, and be prepared to abseil and jump your way down. (The jumps are optional if you can’t quite psych yourself up for it.)
The Thames/Coromandel region is rich in both Maori and European history, and your guides will endeavour to share that history with you as you weave your way through the adventure. The geology of the area is spectacular in itself as the volcanic rock offers a great platform for steep waterfalls and cliff faces to marvel at and of course play in!
At the end of the day you will feel like you need a good feed, a hot shower, your favourite beverage and a good night’s sleep!
You'll also receive photos from your guides who have been capturing all your adventures on camera throughout the day.
