    I did the Niger Stream (for beginners) with my 12yo son. Our guide (Margot) was excellent and made the trip extremely enjoyable. Abseiling, zip lining, jumping into pools, sliding down rock water slides ... every bit of it was great. Well set up and well organised. The water

    Thanks for your review. We close at the end of April as the water does get too cold. December and January are the best months to come canyoning in Wanaka.

    For a day in Wanaka, I deserted a bus tour of New Zealand for active senior citizens, and tried canyoning--the Niger Stream day trip, as that seemed most doable for a 67-year-old woman with no prior canyoning experience. I'm glad I did it. The canyon was beautiful, the

    Having no idea really what canyoning is, we booked anyway - the Niger canyon classed for beginners was enough for us old people. Our guide Margo was wonderful. The jumps and slides along with the abseiling was something to remember. I would maybe highlight the trek up to the top

    I'll start by saying that our guides Margeaux and Akos were brilliant. They were fun but I felt like we were in good hands at all times as well. We loved the canyoning too, hence the 5*. We chose Big Nige following a recommendation from the company under the guise of it being

    Hi, Thanks for your feedback. We have things to work on and appreciate your response and I will ask our operations manager to attend to these details. You can be assured that the higher rate is reflected in the higher standard of guiding, we do have gloves and shoes on order, most companies do not provide these items, but we think travelling with wet shoes is less than ideal. My apology for the hole in the gloves, they do wear out and although they make for more comfort. We should have the redevelopment of the picnic area completed by mid March. We will take on your comments regarding extra charges for uploading which should be resolved once Wanaka has access to faster internet in a few months time. Cheers Ros Deep Canyon

    Cross Creek was stunning! Canyoning itself is such a fun, exciting way to experience the place you're visiting.
