Popular Tour
Torrent River is their popular canyoning trip, simply because it has it all. Jumps, slides, ziplines, abseils, you name it……Torrent’s got it. All this exciting stuff takes place in a gorgeous granite canyon filled with some of the purest water you can find and wrapped in mind-blowing, unspoiled rainforest. What makes it even better is that they access the Abel Tasman National Park by jumping on a fast water taxi that takes you on an exhilarating and scenic ride to one of the perfect golden sand beaches. They then take you on a short hike through stunning native bush to the start of the canyon and they’ve got heaps cool stories about the history, flora and fauna to share with you along the way.

What’s included?

  • Two way water taxi rides in and out of the National Park
  • Delicious lunch, snacks and drinks along the way
  • Free photos and videos!!!
