Oliver Sampson 

Head of Outdoor Education, UWCSEA

We began working with Canyons in 2018. We've had great experiences both Trekking and Snowshoeing. Canyons local and overseas staff are very knowledgeable and professional and possess brilliant technical and facilitation skills. Canyons are developing into a superb educational partner for UWCSEA's Outdoor Education Programme. We look forward to continuing to work with them to provide great adventures for our students. 

Paul Mitchell 

Assistant High School Principal, SEISEN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

Our school has been bringing an entire high school grade to Canyons for over five years, and we have never left disappointed. We do a 'start of the year' adventure trip (August/September) and it always sets the tone for a wonderful year ahead. There is no better place to be in Japan at that time of year! From canyoning to hiking, and rafting to biking, Canyons offers a very unique experience to our students. Many of them arrive with next to no experience in these activities (and even less confidence), but by the end of the trip they are begging to stay another day or two. The Canyons staff is extremely professional, kind, and always entertaining. The food is FANTASTIC and plentiful, and everyone sleeps well in the cosy lodging. We are excited to go yet again at the start of next school year and enjoy another few days of beautiful greenery, cool water, and fresh air!
