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.

It takes a certain kind of person to jump from an aircraft into thin air. It takes courage.
Overload your senses as you step out of a plane thousands of feet above the ground and free-fall 9,000ft at 200km/h towards the earth.
With outstanding views of The Remarkables by your side and Lake Wakatipu below, this is one extreme sensory experience you’ll remember for a lifetime. Embrace the fear with NZONE Skydive Queenstown!
