The NZ Canyoning Association is the national organisation for recreational Canyoning in NZ. This volunteer organisation is proudly supported by Federated Mountain Clubs (FMC) and KiwiCanyons.org. Our mission is to protect our Canyons, to raise the awareness of our Canyoners and to safely grow the sport of Canyoning in New Zealand. We are the Canterbury arm of the association. To be able to attend a NZ Canyoning Association event you need to join - its free http://nzcanyoningassociation.org/about-us/get-involved/ . Another great resource to use is http://www.kiwicanyons.org as it gives an overview of the sport and the type of skills and equipment you need.
