Deep Canyon: IMP Grotto Canyon

A beautiful canyon with some long abseils/rappels very beautiful and easy, located on the West Coast, a 2 hr drive from Wanaka, or 30 min from Haast township, meet at Roaring Billy carpark.

We travel up the lake, then over Haast Pass, through the Mt Aspiring National Park. It is a very scenic drive, with great views of forests, major rivers, glaciated mountains and lakes. It’s a great way to combine a scenic tour of that area with a canyoning adventure!

The trip begins with a steep walk up though west coast jungle, with loads of umbrella ferns and podocarp trees. It takes about 15-20 minutes.

Imp Grotto is a shorter canyon, but is a little more difficult and spectacular than the other

entry level trips.

• Between 2 and 4 Abseils (rappels) up to 40m (120’) high.

• The 40 meter abseil is absolutely incredible, but requires a good head for heights and good swimming ability.

• Up to 4 optional Jumps from 3-12 meters (10-36’)

• Some smaller slides of 2-4m (6-12’)

• Some swims up to 10m (30’) long.

The amazing canyon walls are deep, narrow and have incredible formations. The shapes of the rock in this canyon have to be seen to be believed.
