Family time in the outdoors

Spending time together as a family is one of life’s greatest joys. It allows you some much-needed time together, breaking away from the daily routine and creates memories that will last a lifetime. 

Adventure is great for kids. It teaches them to be resilient, try new things, to work hard, and discover what they are capable of.

Packed with fun, action, and adventure, a tour with Canyons will keep everyone entertained, providing new thrills and experiences. Activities on the water include canyoning, rafting and packrafting (some age restrictions apply).

Why not combine your family time with some adventurous activities! At Canyons we provide the necessary equipment and professional guides, to keep you safe, so you can focus on enjoying a fun day with your family!

Camp out under the stars...

What better way to spend quality, TV-free time with your family than a weekend of glamping! At our Minakami base we have fantastic facilities, specifically designed for you and your family to enjoy the great outdoors, whilst still having the feel of a luxury stay…and no sleeping on the hard ground.

Gone are the days of packing the car high with a tent, bedding, pots, and pans, all you truly need for a great stay is a swimsuit and a sense of adventure. We recommend opting for one of our safari glamping tents, complete with comfortable bedding and evening BBQ options, for a memorable getaway with your loved ones. 

 Let us help you plan your next family adventure...check out our tour and accommodation packages, available for the rest of the season!
