Happy Easter Everyone! We’ve just sent out our Easter Newsletter.
It’s been a great summer here at Abel Tasman Canyons and despite months of no rain in the Tasman region, the canyons in the Abel Tasman National Park still flowed beautifully. Allowing us to continue sharing our passion for canyoning and the Abel Tasman National Park to both locals and visitors. In this newsletter we would like to share with you our latest news and what we have been up to this summer.
We are open until the 30th of April 2019. Over the winter months we will be closed and will reopen again 1st of October 2019.

Happy Summer everyone!
This is our first newsletter of the 2018/2019 season and boy have we had an amazingly busy summer already! A trip into the canyon is proving to be the best way to cool off as this beautiful hot weather continues. The time has flown by and it’s crazy to think we are over half way through this season! We continue to take some fantastic local and international visitors canyoning.

The first thing you always notice when you wake up in New Zealand is the harmonious orchestra of bird song. The constant chatter of many beautiful species fills the air. Perfect, you think, as you look out of the window of the floating backpackers to look at the brilliantly, beautiful , blue bay, surrounded by bright and green native forest with the sun beating down onto the pristine golden beaches. That was the morning we woke to half way through our adventure in the Abel Tasman National Park…
It all started early on a Saturday morning, slamming back a coffee and hastily gobbling up some high energy breakfast. We jumped in the car and sped off (within the speed limit!) around the Tasman bay. Travelling from Nelson City to Marahau taking only an hour on the small highway and then up and over a little hill and being greeted by a beautiful site- Sandy Bay.
Awatea is a student at Motueka High and joined our team in March to complete his work experience. We asked him some questions as to why he decided to chose Abel Tasman Canyons.
Can you tell us a bit about the Gateway programme?
In Gateway you choose a job which seems up your alley and you go out and have a go in that workplace.
Have you always been excited about the outdoors?
I got into the outdoors when i was 12 when my mates asked me to go tramping up Mt Arthur and I’ve loved being out there doing it since.
What inspired you to come and join us at Abel Tasman Canyons?
I was camping out at Anchorage with some mates and my friend Tess who was doing some work experience at Canyons told us all about it and I thought that sounded right up my alley.
What did you think of your first experience of the Torrent River Canyon?
I thought it was such a cool experience going to one of those places that so few eyes get to see and the guides that took me up Pete and Oscar are the bomb. Also learning to back flip was definitely a plus.
