Dry Canyon Abseil Adventure
A nature-based adventure experience
Come and join us for a real forest adventure! We hike through natural forest with ancient trees, hearing about the interesting ecology and forestry heritage of the area. We will also plant an indigenous tree along the way in order to help the forest and the wildlife that relies on it. Then comes the highlight of the trip as we descend in the river gorge, hanging by two safety ropes and all the necessary equipment. It's amazing experience to negotiate the edge and then hang free into space - it's like descending into a lost world. You might find it a little 'exciting' at first, but will soon be awed by the spectacular canyon scenery as you're encouraged by your experienced guide. We then explore the same section of river as on our other trips, but we keep dry in the process by hiking and rock hopping. When the time comes to return, you will be led up a short and easy grade roped climb to get out of the gorge.
Please bring with you:
Comfortable clothes for hiking and climbing with strong shoes.
Your own water and snacks, for hygienic reasons.
Your own hand sanitiser
A face mask for when the abseil necessitates close proximity (only at the start)
We naturally provide the technical equipment such as harnesses and helmets.
We run one trip per day in small groups. Recommended starting time is 09h30 as per our booking system, but feel free to request a preferred time.
