The roots of our love for adventure started for one of the owners back in the 1960’s, when his father was climbing with Sir Edmund Hillary and alpine guiding in the Mount Cook National Park. As a young boy, listening to tales of high adventure being shared by Sir Ed and Tenzing Norgay with our family, inspired a passion for adventure that has never waned.
We are proud to have been sharing our adventures with visitors to the Queenstown region for over 30 years and our goal has never changed – to deliver outstanding adventure experiences.
Our guides include New Zealanders and a United Nations of adventure professionals from around the world. They hold a variety of outdoor qualifications and have a vast amount of guiding experience – as well as being great people who enjoy sharing our special places.
We are the longest operators of canyoning (1998) and via ferrata climbing (2003) in the region.
We are proud to contribute to local and community activities that promote education, conservation and environmental sustainability in the areas that we operate.
Canyon Explorers are part of the Adventure Group of Tourism companies.
