At the start of this year Abel Tasman Canyons and the New Zealand Canyoning School affiliated with ICOpro (International Canyoning Organization for Professionals) as a Canyoneer Training Center. This means that alongside our own training courses we can now provide training for the ICTC Canyoneer 1-2-3 ICOpro qualification. This qualification is internationally recognised and we are the first ICOpro centre now established in New Zealand.

Our first 8 day training course begins on the 6th of April 2018 with Adrien Paris and Toine Houtenbos as the examiners. There has been great interest in this course seeing it booked out immediately. We’ll be scheduling more of these courses in the future so watch this space.

“Canyoning In The Abel Tasman Was The Best Experience Of My Life”

This amazing woman, Lee came canyoning with us and wrote about it on her blog page befreewithlee.com. She states “Canyoning in the Abel Tasman National Park was one of the best experiences of my life. I really hope you get the chance to experience this epic trip while travelling through the Nelson region, as it is such a wonderful, soul strengthening activity!” Her journey is an inspiration to us as she writes about her own experience suffering with mental health issues.

She says she felt after her canyoning adventure “(I felt) alive, exhilarated, empowered and like I really could do anything. I also felt like I wanted to be a canyon guide afterwards lol. It was such a magical experience being able to push my limits”.

We are so proud of her for stepping out of her comfort zone, exploring something completely new and loving it!!

Well done Lee!!
