Nevis Swing - Helicopter - Shotover Rafting

The combo is not for the faint-hearted! The Nevis Swing is the largest in the world! Suspended 160m above the canyon, this swing has a gut-wrenching 300m arcs and will see you reach speeds of 120km. You can brave the Swing solo or go as a tandem with multiple swing styles available.

If that’s not enough excitement for one day, you will then take to the skies on a roller coaster helicopter ride to see the Shotover River from above, before landing in the remote Skippers Canyon. Top it off with white water rafting down the Shotover River. Tackle six grade 3 – 5 rapids, with stretches of calm water to take in the views, go for a swim and soak up its gold mining history. Finish your raft trip by rafting through the 170m Oxenbridge Tunnel before tackling Cascade Rapid to complete the challenge.
