NZ Canyoning Festival 2018

Nelson Lakes, 2-5 February 2018


Registration is now closed.

We’ve reached the limit of 80 participants.

For those with the right skills who are willing to volunteer (i.e. host a trip or workshop), we’ll still accept registration. If you think you fit the bill, email us at nzcanyoningassociation (at) gmail (dot) com.

We’ll circulate more info to participants closer to the time.

Info pack on the canyons

A number of high quality canyons have been opened in the region last summer, ranging from V3A2 through to V6A4. There are now over 20 canyons spread across the Nelson Lakes, Abel Tasman, Mt Owen, and Richmond Range areas to explore. And some of the best canyons on the West Coast are only a few hours away. A pdf addition info pack on all of the Top of the South canyons is available here.

Festival format

The Festival format is similar to the 2016 Festival, with a combination of workshops and hosted trips taking place. This Festival will last a little longer – in addition to the main function (Friday till Monday), there will be an informal get together on the following Wednesday in the Abel Tasman area. Come for a whole week and make the most of it! Local and international canyoners welcome.
