Reason Number Three: We love the environment…this much!

At Abel Tasman Canyons we are proactive when it comes to protecting our amazing and precious environment. We are proud to operate as a Zero Carbon business with EKOS, meaning that we purchase certified carbon credits to offset where we are unable to eliminate our carbon footprint. 

Along with being a Zero Carbon Business Operation, when you jump on a canyoning adventure with Abel Tasman Canyons you are helping us to support local trusts and organisations such as the Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust and the Abel Tasman Tree Collective. These guys work super hard for better sustainability so we can all continue to enjoy and play in the Abel Tasman National Park. A pretty darn good reason to come canyoning in the Abel Tasman National Park, isn’t it? 

Check out our sustainability page to find out more about what we do.

Reason Number Four: A canyoning adventure with so much more!

A trip through Torrent River will have you sightseeing along the stunning Abel Tasman National Park coastline on-board a water taxi, on your way to and from Anchorage. If you’re lucky enough you could spot some of the local resident wildlife.

From the golden sands of Anchorage, a walk in the Abel Tasman National Park begins to get you to the top of the canyon where your adventure awaits. Walking through the native bush will be accompanied by some stories and interesting facts about your surroundings. 

An epic adrenaline filled adventure including a fantastic boat trip and a walk that includes some wicked views of the park…we don’t think it gets much better than that!
