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 canyoning 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.

Our Nelson and Tasman region was in much need of some rain and when it finally came it meant the water levels were too high to run a trip through the Torrent River. However, this didn’t stop the boys from going canyoning! They used this day to do some white water training.
