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!!
