Enjoy a breathtaking helicopter flight and an action-packed white water rafting adventure on the famous Shotover River in Queenstown!
Your half-day adventure begins with a coach trip picking you up at Queenstown store, heading to the Rafting Base to meet your guides and gear up. You'll then make your way to Skippers Canyon Road on Coronet Peak. You will jump in a helicopter here and fly through the canyon, right above the Shotover River you are about to raft.
You'll land at Deep Creek where your water rafting adventure starts. First you will meet your guide and receive a comprehensive safety briefing, and then jump into the raft. You'll raft through peaceful waters at first, soon head towards the exhilarating rapids of the lower canyon. You'll tackle grade 3-5 white-water rapids, raft the Moana-Roa (big water) Chief section including Aftershock and Squeeze. You'll raft through the 170 metre long Oxenbridge Tunnel and end on one epic rapid, Cascade.
After paddling back to base and loading up the rafts, enjoy a hot shower and a cold beer (if you'd like) at the Rafting Base. Then it is time to load onto the shuttle bus and return to downtown Queenstown.
