Tour Information

Maple Canyon

Maple Canyon is located high in a native forest mid way up the Minakami mountains at the entrance to Oze National Park.  The course is made up of a series of great slides and small jumps (1-3m) that is great for timid first time canyoners or can be tweaked to cater for slightly higher thrill seekers.  The water is crystal clear and so pure you can drink straight out of the river.  It is a 40 minute drive from our base facility but well worth it.  

Please note: As the course is set at a reasonably high altitude the water is very "fresh", so we can only run this course during August.
