Tour Information

COMBO (Fox Canyon + Summer Rafting)

Combine the thrill of canyoning and rafting in one hit at Canyons Minakami. Together these two highlight the best that Minakami has to offer in summertime.

If it is your first time canyoning and you are up for some thrills, then this is the place to start. It is also perfect for groups with lots of different thrill levels! It's easy to access and a short walk from where the bus drops you. Fox is an incredibly beautiful canyon with some great jumps, slides and waterfalls. 

After a morning of adventure we head back to base for lunch. Kick back and relax for a while before it is time to head out for the afternoon dose of thrills.

A good break and a refueling lunch on the deck at Canyons between activities means even an absolute beginner can enjoy the combination of two activities in one day.

With less water flowing down the Tone River in summer months the rapids mellow out and there is more time to relax and play on the river. Escape the heat and humidity of summer in the refreshing waters flowing down from the towering mountains. Enjoy jumping from the river bank, diving out of the raft and floating in cool pools.
