Empress canyon is one of our most popular activities:
Empress Canyon - Grade: Moderate $190
A fantastic abseiling/canyon combination, one of the mountains best!
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.
