Happy Valentine’s Newsletter

By | Articles by us, Media, News, Videos

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!

Merry Christmas 2019 Newsletter

By | Articles by us, News, Videos

Merry Christmas Everyone! This is our first newsletter of the 2019/2020 season and boy have we got lots of news to share with you.

We are stoked and extremely grateful to have had many staff members return for another season. On top of this we have been lucky to bring in Chris, who owns his own canyoning business in the Northern Hemisphere. Having such a well-experienced/senior team has allowed us to take on two super keen assistant instructors who we have sourced from the local area. Zeb grew up in the Golden Bay and has just finished his Diploma in Outdoor Instruction and Guiding at Tai Poutini Polytechnic. Danelle grew up in Nelson and has started her canyoning career in Australia, only to come home and realise how good the canyons are in her own backyard. Take a look at this video to meet the whole crew.

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.
