We had a lovely combo tour! The best part was the abseiling which Candy facilitated. Then we did a casual hike out which was spectacular! I would highly recommend Candy and the Hogsback Adventures team!

It was a last minute reservation at Away with the Fairies that was one awesome experience. A bath tub on the edge of the mountain, the beautiful view and at night time, meeting interesting people! The snow was awesome but our accommodation was unforgettable experience!

An amazing experience well worth doing. There are no words to describe every emotion and thought that goes through your mind standing at the edge of the waterfall. Can't wait to get back there and do it again.More

Hi Lizelle Thanks so much for the review. It was so much fun hosting all you ladies.! Hopefully next time you can experience the abseil for yourself. Candy

We went abseiling with Hogsback Adventures and it was a great experience. The guy in charge is very professional and friendly, and abseiling down the waterfall was a great way of taking in the beauty of the landscape. We highly recommend it.
