The Abel Tasman Tree Collective

By | News, Videos

Recently Abel Tasman Canyons joined the Abel Tasman Tree Collective, a great local initiative. Through the Tree Collective we collaborate with other commercial operators and accommodation providers of the Abel Tasman region. We enable visitors to the region to contribute to the restoration of the area and minimize the impacts of their carbon emissions while visiting and enjoying this special place. Donations can be made through any of the members’ websites or premises, including through our website here.

Cyclone Gita caused widespread landslides in the area so one of the project was to replant some of the badly hit areas. Have a look at the video to see what amazing things your support combined with a great community can achieve.

Please contact us if you want to get involved, would like to donate native plants, or if you have skills or machinery that can be of use. The area needs all the help it can get. Also keep an eye on the Abel Tasman Tree Collective facebook page to see when projects take place and many other interesting posts.

Does a canyon need flowing water?

By | Articles by you, Videos

Noémie Castaing is an independent ICOpro CA3 canyoneer from France. She joined some of the Abel Tasman Canyons guides on a trip down Blue Creek in the Kahurangi National Park. Typically, when we think canyoning we think waterfalls, pools, jumps, slides etc. However, Blue Creek is unique in the sense that there is no flowing water in normal conditions. Does that make it less of a canyon? We think NOT! Have a read of Noémie’s well written blog, watch another one of Adri Paris‘ masterpiece videos, and decide for yourself.
