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

By | Articles, News, Publishing, Travel blogs

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!!

Customers Review from Trip Advisor

Reviewed 1 October 2017
This one is on your bucket list!

Torrent River : Let’s qualify this review first.

We did this on the first day of the 2017/18 season, in 10degC water, on a 12degC day, cloudy and raining for the second half. With a 13yo in tow and with neither of us having any experience. The logistics were themselves major just getting there.

This is NOT your average tourist attraction. This is not even an extreme activity. This is just pure madness, bottled and sold by professionals.

Remember those youthful times at the river or the swimming hole with your mates when you did stupid things? Remember how it invariably just ended real bad for you or a mate, or you soon discovered how dangerous it really was and stopped?

Imagine what it would be like to do those cool things… but without all that risk. To be able to play with ropes, swings and fast flowing water but not have to think about how it should actually be done. To be able to run and jump off a rock without a care in the world as to what lay below you, or under that water.

You’re imagining Abel Tasman Canyons. A magical place where you just do crazy stuff and someone else stands there and worries themselves to death instead of you.

But there’s no need to worry, because everything has been engineered to the finest precision by seasoned professionals beforehand. All the risks have been controlled. You just do as your told and the magic happens.
