This Shotover River white water rafting adventure is a must for adrenaline junkies visiting the Queenstown region of NZ! Those with a zest for the more adrenaline pumping side of whitewater rafting will be ecstatic with a journey down the pristine waters of Queenstown's Shotover River. The river itself is fast and furious and also provides a wonderful showcase of the unspoilt and breathtaking scenery of the Queenstown region as you soar down the river and conquer its wild, untamed surface and rapids in the company of your fellow rafters and qualified safety instructor. Six separate sections of rapids will be encountered along the way, as well as the long, shadowy distance of the 170m-long Oxenbridge Tunnel and finish it all off with the Cascade Rapid that will cap off the rafting challenge! This Shotover River rafting tour departs twice daily in both the morning and the afternoon, so both early birds and late risers can participate in the peak of their alertness.
Had a brilliant afternoon white water rafting in queenstown
Had a brilliant afternoon white water rafting in queenstown. Our guide was brilliant and told us stories of the mining history. The white water rafting itself was great fun but we were hoping for more rapids - the first 8km was very calm. Having said this, if it had been raining more I expect it would have been more difficult! Overall a brilliant afternoon.
This was the highlight of our holiday
This was the highlight of our holiday. OMG the trip up Skippers road alone was scary. The guides were hilarious and made it such fun. It wasn't such a huge rapid as been dry and sunny for days but still pretty butt clenching at times. Would definitely do this again next time we visit NZ
Absolutely awesome experience
Absolutely awesome experience, would recommend it to anyone! The instructors are absolutely excellent and definitely made it a memorable experience!
