ABOUT
CANYON EXPLORERS

LET’S TELL YOU A LITTLE MORE ABOUT US…

We are proud to have been sharing outstanding adventures with visitors to the Queenstown region since arriving here in 1988.

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) in the region.

We contribute to our local community and support activities that promote education, conservation and environmental sustainability in the areas that we operate.

Canyon Explorers are part of the Adventure Group Limited.

EXCLUSIVE ACCESS

We are the only commercial operators allowed access to our canyons.

BEST CANYONS & ACTIVITIES

Our canyoning experiences feature more waterfalls, natural water slides and deep, crystal clear pools than any other canyoning operator in Queenstown. Our half day climbing trip is New Zealand’s first and Queenstown’s only via ferrata climbing system. Located only minutes from downtown Queenstown, it rewards climbers with spectacular views across the Lake Wakatipu, the town and mountains beyond.

EXPERIENCE & SAFETY

We have been certified by Adventure Mark for compliance with the New Zealand Safety Audit Standard for Adventure Activities. We support the New Zealand Outdoor Instructors Association and our guides hold NZOIA qualifications for our activities. We provide both in-house and outsourced training for all our staff and we strive to exceed the standards of best practice for adventure guiding.

CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGE

We understand that challenge means different things to everyone and you should be able to choose your challenge. Where our trips have features that some may find a little too challenging - our guides can provide alternatives to ensure that you are comfortable. It is about helping you find your personal comfort zone. Good times and new experiences.

CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT & INVESTMENT

We live in fast changing times and we recognise the need to maximise new technologies, products, materials and ways of doing things that go towards making our activities even better, as well as being a great place to work.

“AMAZING CANYON, INCREDIBLE GUIDES, BEST DAY!”
