An authentic New Zealand canyoning experience for all year round! As night falls, be guided by the light of the glow worms and stars!


  • Located on hidden Raglan farmland surrounded by pure natural beauty
  • Abseil down waterfalls and navigate the canyon stream at night!

  • Award winning tour and 5 star reviewed on TripAdvisor
  • Perfect year round activity - super warm wetsuits in winter!

Descend into the old freshwater canyon stream flowing down from Mt Karioi as night falls.

You will be surrounded by picturesque scenery throughout the trip, all located on hidden Raglan farmland. This is a highly rated, truly magical canyoning experience.

No matter the season, we have you covered! In summer you have lighter wetsuits, in Winter you'll be just as warm in super thick insulated wetsuits.

We encounter many obstacles on our way down, from waterfalls and rock walls to large boulders and deep rock pools. Challenge yourself to climb and abseil the cascading waterfalls and jump into the deep pools below!

Although challenging, you will be accompanied by a very experienced, passionate and personable guide who is 100% safety audit certified, making sure all adventurers feel safe and get the most out of each and every trip.

As we navigate our way downstream, we will reach the final waterfall which is home to thousands of twinkling glowworms. Cast your eyes around the rock face and revel in the magical luminescent display, before heading back to base to finish off an adventure to be remembered for a lifetime.

Awesome operators and memorable experience!

We booked this adventure for our 16th anniversary and couldn't enjoy ourselves more than being with such great guides and in the beautiful Raglan region. Also Harry who I think runs the business is awesome as he very kindly accommodated our special need for booking date. Highly recommend this business and its good people.

What an experience!

Great experience to do this in the dark. A challenging walk through a slippery stream, lots of glowworms, special tea and some pretty amazing abseils! The glowworms at the last waterfall make the end absolutely stunning!

Awesome experience!

Georgie is an absolute saint! I took the glow worm canyoning trip at nighttime with my buddy and my parents who are both 65+ years old. None of us had any type of rappelling experience and Georgie got us down steep drops and over rocky areas with the patience of Mother Theresa. Would 100 percent recommend this trip!
