Gareth Jones, an avid climber started his journey guiding with one backpack, a rope and a whole heap of passion! From this we have become the company we are today, offering a whole range of exhilarating adventures and courses, from rock climbing experiences and courses, to canyoning, to caving, day or night, our adventures are always delivering! 

Nowadays, times have changed, we have more than one passionate climber, and certainly more than one gear pack!! Our awesome team are all keen outdoor enthusiasts and we regard ourselves as one big whanau, so much so that even on our days off you’ll most likely find us all together in a canyon, cave or hanging off a rock face!

We’re proud to have been sharing our adventures with people from all over the world since 2012 and strive to keep showing what an incredible place Raglan is! We have been certified by Adventure Mark for compliance with the New Zealand Safety Audit Standard for Adventure Activities, and fully support the New Zealand Outdoor Instructors Association. All our staff are fully trained and qualified in their relevant activities, and with our constant in-house and outsourced training, we aim to be working above and beyond the best practice for adventure instructing!

Let us get you outdoors to experience the magic of nature! Abseiling waterfalls in the dark surrounded by glow worms, marvelling at the incredible formations in our underground labyrinths, and rock climbing at some of the most beautiful locations Aotearoa has to offer!

It’s in our Nature!
