The canyoning tour is our signature activity.
It includes going in the untouched Nakatsu Canyon where only we go commercially. The area is untouched and stunningly beautiful. Abseiling, cliff jumping and exploring under a waterfall are all part of this unique experience. It will be one of the highlight of your holiday!
Go explore the famous Niyodo blue the best possible way : packrafting! You get to control your own boat through grade 2 rapids. Stunning landscapes, adventure, cliff jumping if you dare and free photos!
All of our tours are small so you can customize your own trip and do rapids that you enjoyed the most twice.
You want to do a special activity on your holiday with a friend or a group of friends?
We have exactly what you need : renting a sauna tent! Next to some of the clearest water in Japan, relax for up to 6 hours on the riverside and enjoy the sauna tent, complimentary essential oil, chairs and tent.
q. What should I bring?
A. For all of our tours, you only need to bring your swimsuit and towel. If you wish to use your own waterproof camera (e.g. GoPro) we have mounts on some helmets.
q. can I pay with a credit card?
A. You can pay with your credit card when you book the tour in our booking system linked above. If you would like to pay cash at the premises, please book directly with us through email or phone.
q. what if it rains?
A. We operate on a 'cutoff' system. The rain itself will not prevent a tour from happening but if the river's water levels rise too high, the tour might have to be cancelled or changed for rafting tour. We will contact you if this happens.
q. what skills do I need?
A. You will need basic swimming skills for all our tours except family tours. Our packrafting and canyoning tours are designed for first timers but keep in mind that it can be challenging! If you are worried, do not hesitate to reach out.
My teenaged daughter and I had a fantastic introduction to canyoning and the beautiful Nakatsu Gorge with Niyodo Adventure! Hiro was a terrific guide and made sure everyone in the group had a great experience. He was also careful to always repeat whatever he'd said in English for the two of us.The route offers the perfect mix of activities --a variety of jumps, slides and climbs up/down/through clear blue pools and waterfalls (including possible adjustments for the less-brave).The scenery in the gorge is stunning and the water was perfectly refreshing.Niyodogawa was a convenient day trip from Kochi, and the canyoning site was very close to the Niyodo Adventure base.Everything you need is provided, and we always felt safe and cared for. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to bringing friends with us next summer!
