Do the 'World's Highest Cliff Jump' with Shotover Canyon Swing (109m) and then raft underneath it with a whitewater rafting trip down the 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!
Shotover Canyon Swing
Perched high on the edge of a cliff sits the Shotover Canyon Swing, a purpose built swing that boasts a 60m free-fall before swinging out in a 200m arc.
Choose from over 70 different jump styles, each assigned ‘underpants ratings’ from 1 to 5, this sure is one way to get your pulse racing! The atmosphere is electric and the adrenaline rush guaranteed as you take the leap from the platform mounted 109m above the Shotover River – the world’s highest cliff jump!
