Bookings will open for the Chasm Walk on 1/9/21. We are aware that at this stage we not only have the weather to work round but also Covid and in addition we have had to apply to the Department of Conservation for a concession to use the Ruakokoputuna River on the Chasm Walk. We have applied for this but have not heard back yet. We see no reason why we should not be granted this . If we have to cancel the walks for any reason a 95% refund will be made, the 5% reflects the cost of booking and administration. We have had considerable cost increases. The biggest by far will be the payment to Department of Conservation for the concession and we cannot absorb them.
The cost for the Chasm Walk this season will be Adults $42 and school children $20.
Anyone wanting to bring their own 4WD to the start of the walk needs to email email@example.com or ring 0275308883.
Next season starts 12 NOVEMBER 2021 & closes 31 March 2022

YOU NEED TO KNOW
Walkers are to meet at the farm at least 10 minutes before their walk is due to leave to fill out health and safety paperwork. We will transport you from the house to the chasm and pick you up 3 hours later. Please wait to be picked up, do NOT attempt to walk home, we access the chasm through other peoples property and they do not want people walking over their land.

Drones are not permitted in the chasm without permission from Patuna. This must be obtained at the time of your booking.
