Happy Valentine’s Canyoners,
We are now mid-summer and we figured it was about time for another newsletter to let everyone know what we have been up to.
We have been super fortunate with the stable weather, which has made it possible for us to run trips every single day for the last 2 months and despite there not having been any rain, Torrent River has maintained its nice and juicy flow. That said, the region is in desperate need for some significant rain. So here is hoping there will be some rain soon.
With Valentine’s day coming up we thought this would be a nice moment to thank you for all the Aroha we have received over the last few months, without you (keen participants, local operators, agents, friends and family) we could not do what we do.
With another 3 months of the season to go we look forward to seeing you in the canyon some time soon!

We spent an evening together with Waka Abel Tasman for our Christmas get-together. A big thank you to Lee-Anne & Todd for an amazing evening on-board Takirau! What an awesome experience and such a great way to celebrate having our Abel Tasman Canyons whānau altogether for the first time!

Abel Tasman Canyons, along with other local operators, combined with Motueka i-SITE to create a float in the 2019 Motueka Starlight Christmas Parade. The chosen theme was Little Red Riding Hood – Kiwi style! We took out the Business Category – wahoo! We are super proud to be a part of such a fantastic community here in Motueka.
We took our pal Bare Kiwi into the Torrent River so he could film this amazing 360 degrees video! What a legend!
We have been open for over a week already and have had a great start to the season!
Spring is an amazing time of year to come canyoning with us. Enjoy a day out in the Abel Tasman National Park, before the hustle and bustle of summer. The water flows are juicy and the weather is amazing, making it the perfect conditions for canyoning!
From all the team here at Abel Tasman Canyons.

A few of our guides and office staff were able to attend the Canyoning Festival held in St Arnauld at the beginning of February 2018. Click the image below to read the article featured on Stuff Website. This was such an awesome event where 100 canyoning enthusiasts with all different experience came together to learn new skills and go canyoning around the Nelson Lakes and Nelson region.
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!!
