Hold on tight from the moment you leave the river base, as you spend 30 adrenaline-inducing minutes blasting down Queenstown’s scenic Shotover River. Watch as your driver skillfully navigates between boulders and through narrow canyons, which have been carved out through powerful flows of water from the Southern Alps. Prepare for 360 degree turns on the river and speeds of up to 85kph! Being the only company operating on the Shotover River, you’ll feel truly immersed into the wild as your group zooms on this pristine piece of nature. For added convenience, you can pick up the shuttle bus departing regularly between downtown Queenstown and the start location.
