Looking for an unforgettable adventure? Join us on our Women's Empress Canyon Trip, where you'll experience the rush of abseiling down a 30m waterfall, rock jumping, and exploring majestic rainforest scenery.
To start the day, you'll meet our fabulous canyon guides, who will help you learn the ropes (literally) with a dry abseil from the Mount York plateau. The abseil pitches range from 5m to 30m, so there's something for everyone.
Afterwards, we'll take a break for lunch before putting on our provided wetsuits, harnesses, backpacks, and helmets to explore the Empress Canyon. This canyon boasts sculptured rock formations, deep pools perfect for jumping into (optional, but we dare you!), and the breathtaking 30m waterfall abseil that you won't want to miss. The longest swim required to complete the canyon is approximately 10m.
Before reaching the waterfall, you'll have the opportunity to clamber over boulders, spot bright orange crayfish, and take in the beauty of the rainforest scenery. This moderate-level trip requires a good level of health and fitness, and you should be comfortable on your feet for a minimum of 6.5 hours and have high mobility.
Our moderate level trips will see you spending more time outdoors and moving that body of yours for up to 6.5-7 hours on this canyon day. You will need high mobility and expect to be on your feet moving up and down rocks and hills. Physical exercise should not be new to you.
Please note that canyons can be cold and beautiful places, so expect to be cold, wet, and tired (but happy grumpy!). The weight limit can be subjective depending on your height and fitness level, so if you are over 100kg and relatively short, please contact us to see if this trip is suitable for you.
We can't wait to share this unforgettable adventure with you!
