Prepare yourself for a hair-raising experience as you head to the stunning Shotover River for an exhilarating freefall and a wild river-rafting ride. Jump from massive cliffs and drop towards surging rapids before jumping in a boat and cruising along the very same waters.

Start your adventure with some serious whitewater rafting action. Meet your river guide and listen to a safety briefing before getting into the raft and paddling calmly through peaceful waters. Before long, the gentle current turns to heart-pounding rapids. Listen to your guide and work with your team to conquer sections with names like Aftershock, Squeeze, Jaws and Toilet.

Just when you thought the fun had ended, make your way up to the clifftop to take the Shotover Canyon Swing drop. From a height of 358 feet (109 m), leap into the void and freefall before your line catches and you enjoy a thrilling swing through the rocky walls of this stunning river canyon. When you make it back to the platform, head back to your comfortable transport and return to Queenstown.
