Duration: Full day
Do the 'World's Highest Cliff Jump' with Shotover Canyon Swing (109m) and then raft underneath it with a whitewater rafting trip down the Shotover River.
Shotover River Rafting
Queenstown’s famous Shotover River provides whitewater rafting action for those looking for extra excitement and thrills. Experience the rugged beauty of the Skippers Canyon as you conquer the wild and untamed Shotover River. Tackle the thunderous ‘Mother’ rapids, a series of six grade 4-5 rapids, before the journey through the darkness of the 170-metre long Oxenbridge Tunnel. Shoot the drop into Cascade Rapid to complete your whitewater rafting adventure.
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!
Please Note: Rafting on the Shotover River from 13 May to 15 September is only accessible via helicopter. See recommended alternatives below.
