Nevis Swing - Shotover Rafting

The world's biggest swing! Because if you're going to go, you have to go big! The Nevis Swing is a 300-metre arc, suspended 160 metres above the river and canyon floor. Fly through the air at an incredible 120kph. This is one Queenstown activity that has to go on your bucket list.

Even after that, your adventure has only just begun! Experience White Water Rafting in the Adventure Capital of New Zealand.

You'll start with an awe-inspiring drive into the famous Skippers Canyon.  At Deep Cove, you'll meet you rafting guides, practice your skills before you jump on board the rafts to take on the rapids.    

The mighty Shotover comprises 6 rapids graded from 3-5 that vary with river levels.  With names like Aftershock, Squeeze, Toilet and Pinball you can imagine the fun that's going to unfold.  Get down, hold on and enjoy!
