Canyon Swing - Helicopter - Shotover Rafting

Put these three activities together and you’re in for a swinging good time! Situated high above the Shotover River on a purpose-built, cliff mounted platform is the famous Shotover Canyon Swing. With over 70 different jump styles this swing will have you screaming for that 60m free-fall in more ways than one.

Once you’ve faced your fear of falling it’s time to jump on board a helicopter ride which follows the twists and turns of the river to the launch spot for your white-water rafting adventure.

Paddle down the richest gold-bearing river in the world (per km) and take in the narrow canyon’s rapids of Rock Garden, Squeeze, Pinball and Toilet to name a few. We hope you’re not afraid of the dark as you raft through the 170m long Oxenbridge Tunnel before splashing down the Cascade rapid to finish!
