Overview

Challenge your senses with this back to nature adrenalin rush, this trip has is all! Walk through lush rainforest, to the top of your descent into the canyon with a series of abseils, before entering a narrow volcanic gorge, with its hidden pools, caves and jumps.

The piha canyon is set in an amazing steep sided volcanic rock valley providing a spectacular setting for your adventure. With a series of thundering waterfalls that cascade their way down the valley towards the ocean. This canyon has the highest commercially abseiled waterfall in the auckland region as well as an intense narrow slot canyon abseil, jumps, caves and idyllic natural rock pools.

All the caves and jumps are optional… you choose the level of adventure that’s right for you! A no-rush, explore at your own pace adventure while gaining access to hidden pools and water sculptured gorges. This otherwise inaccessible environment, last used by the pioneers as they worked the canyon 100 years ago, harvesting the mighty Kauri logs and flushing them from the hills via dam releases – Some of the old logs remain embedded in the canyon.

Important Info

All the caves and jumps are optional… you choose the level of adventure that’s right for you! A no-rush, explore at your own pace adventure while gaining access to hidden pools and water sculptured gorges. This otherwise inaccessible environment, last used by the pioneers as they worked the canyon 100 years ago, harvesting the mighty Kauri logs and flushing them from the hills via dam releases – Some of the old logs remain embedded in the canyon.

Following the trip we visit the Piha’s famous black sand surf beach. One of the advantages of the Piha canyon is its good access, with only a 35 min walk in and 5 min downhill walk out from the end of the canyon, means we can kick back at the Piha Store for hot pizza and bubbles after our adventure… and if we have the energy we can go explore the Kitekite Falls.

Do you have to do all the abseils, jumps, slides, caves etc.?

Most abseils and all jumps are optional. Often there are ways to get around obstacles or the guides will give you easier options if you require it. You don’t have to go through any caves.

Photos

Our guides will take photos of you during your trip, they have got a lot of experience at getting the good shots. we aim to send you at least 6 photos, but often more like 10 photos – it just depends on the conditions in the canyon. You are welcome to bring your own waterproof camera (at your own risk). If you do bring your camera your guide will explain to you the safe times to use it (its important the photography doesn’t interfere with safety on the trip).

And best of all you get all the photos on the day for free.. YUS!

How fit do I have to be for the Piha half day?

You should feel confident that you can walk up hills in wetsuits and navigate through slippery streams and over rocks.

Is canyoning safe?

In general jumps and slides are considered as the main contributing factors to injuries within the canyoning industry. The types of canyon we operate in are small catchment and have easy exits from the canyon therefore making them very safe from this risk.

How cold is it?

Most of the time the full length wetsuits will keep you perfectly comfortable. But for a couple of months over mid winter (June and July) the canyoning is cold and only for the brave hearted! Most of the time canyoning is the perfect activity for colder wetter days as we are fully suited in wetsuits and will be jumping into water anyway!

Meet the Host

Senka Radonich

Hi, I’m Senka .  I like long walks on the beach, I’m an Aquarian and I like… oh hold up, wrong place for that.

Let’s try that again.  Hey, I’m Senka.  Creator of Adventure Girls – kick ass adventures for women and Adventure Girls In Biz.

In 2004 I quit working for the corporates and became a serial entrepreneur and co-launched my first business and never looked back (ok, maybe once or twice if I’m being totally honest).

I’ve helped my share of women find their sense of adventure along the way through adventure girls, and for the most part of it, I’ve had a tonne of fun.  Seeing a person’s face light up in that moment they move into seeing something is possible for them… that’s gold!

I’m no stranger to failure or set backs though. I’ve been married and divorced, struggled with my weight and self estem, and built a property potfolio and then lost everything in the property market crash resulting in having to restart Adventure Girls all over from scratch.  From these lessons and a sh*t load more I have learned first-hand how to overcome anxiety, low self-esteem and that inner critic to get myself back into a place of being totally ok with who I am and rocking my biz.

Between Adventure Girls and the Adventure Girls Sisterhood I’ve created a global reach of around 13k women who are interested in adventures in one way or another.  I’ve run well over 200 adventures for women including both national and international.
