Jetboat through the spectacular Shotover Canyons with the world famous Shotover Jet and go whitewater rafting in Queenstown down the mighty Kawarau River.
Kawarau River Rafting
The Kawarau River provides an exhilarating trip for first time rafters. A great introduction to whitewater rafting, the Kawarau River boasts superb scenery and unique perspectives of the Gibbston Valley wine region and New Zealand’s first bungy jumping site. Float past vast rock cliffs and dramatic scenery that was home to the filming of the Lord of the Rings. Top it all off with the longest commercially rafted rapid in New Zealand, the 400 metre long Dog Leg Rapid!
Queenstown’s Shotover Jet has thrilled over 3 million people since 1965. Take a unique breathtaking ride through dramatic and narrow canyons, and hold on tight for Queenstown’s only exhilarating full 360° spins.
Known as 'The World’s Most Exciting Jet Boat Ride' and the only company permitted to operate in the spectacular Shotover River Canyons, this is an adrenaline rush you’ll never forget!
