X'se tagħmel

The first half of the day is abseiling, starting with a 5 metre high cliff and building up to 30 metre high cliffs during the morning.

After lunch, it's a scenic 20 minute walk to the start of the canyon. You wade into the creek that descends into the narrow slot-like canyon and within a few seconds you are jumping into a rock pool, the first of several jumps and swims. This canyon is an exciting affair with water jumps, exhilarating swims, waterslides and fantastic scenery.

The final abseil out of the canyon is one of the best waterfall abseils in the mountains. Clip into the rope, step back and follow the 30 metre waterfall down to the deep rock pool below. This is not just a brilliant waterfall abseil but also a fantastic photo opportunity.

The dedicated team of Hosts behind High and Wild Adventures are myself, Darren, Tim, or Richard. We are a core group of keen outdoor adventurists. We have over a 150 years experience of adventuring here in the Blue Mountains. Our training takes two years, then our staff are mentored to becoming a lead guide. This usually takes a further year to complete. After booking, I will let you know who your certified guide (Host) will be.
Other things to note
For Canyoning bring running shoes you can get wet, swimsuit, a bottle of water and a waterproof camera. If you don’t have one I can supply a waterproof camera free of charge. Also please let me know of any dietary requirements.

I am a keen outdoor adventurist - rock climbing, canyoning & bike riding have been my passion for many years. I've also spent 8 years working in Latin America as an Aid Worker.
- Darren, co-owner of High and Wild & senior guide, has been climbing for 30 years here in the mountains, if there's anything you want to know about a climb he generally has the answer.
- Tim is also an avid climber, he grew up in the mountains exploring the creeks & crags, turning his passion into a job!!
- Richard comes from an outward bound back ground. He has worked extensively with youth-at-risk kids.

This was one of the best adrenaline pumping trips in recent times… From moving jobs, moving countries, dreams of starting a new exciting life with my wife and then the buggering on n off lockdowns in Sydney -all things focused on over the last three years - I felt i had completely fallen into the viscous cycle of life… needed a radical change to get out of the slump n feel alive again… This trip with #highandwildbluemountains was the perfect opportunity to experience the joy of life again! More so, coz the guides Sammy n Ben went out if the way to make us feel comfortable- despite my fear of heights n lack of swimming abilities, they made sure we were safe at all times and still enjoyed every bit of each activity! Never knew the blue mountains had so much to offer - from abseiling to canyoning through the rainforest to jumping in steep rock pools to rappelling down the empress-falls ! Probably wouldn’t have been able to go through it without their support. I also want to mention, unexpectedly, the missus got her periods midway through - and the guides were gentlemen and more than happy to drive us to a nearby shop to get tampons as well - another example of how courteous n helpful they were throughout! Like all the other reviews, if you’re on the fence about this, don’t be - just go for it. For those who have never done this before, it’s a life changing experience. Totally worth it!

Very professional, friendly, reassuring, confident and experienced guides. Super approachable. My expectations were exceeded and the whole group had so much fun. Highly recommended and can’t wait to take on the next level challenge with the same crew.

Loved the guides who taught us everything. They gave me courage and support when I was hesitant to jump into the pools. I can't believe I was able to accomplish the waterfall abseil!

We had such an incredible experience thanks to Aiden, Arno and Sophia! We felt very safe in the capable hands of Arno and Sophia who were our guides for the day. Canyoning was the highlight of the day! The whole day ran so smoothly there wasn’t nothing to fault!

Definitely worth a try! Felt very safe the whole time, the team (Tim, Joshua & Sophia) were hands on and guided us all throughout. Fave part would be the abseil at the Empress Falls! Overall, a very good experience

My boyfriend and I did this as a special adventure experience for his birthday in January. We had a wonderful day, and the trip was divided perfectly into abseiling (and building your confidence with the heights) in the morning, and then canyoning down a spectacular waterfall in the afternoon. Our guides were excellent, they were knowledgable, made us feel really safe, and able to have lots of fun, and the group as a whole was really lovely and made the experience. Oh and the sandwiches live up to the hype!
