If you like skydiving and bungee jumping and any other heart-racing activity, you will absolutely love this opportunity to freefall over Shotover Canyon on a giant swing. This large, deep canyon is one of Queenstown's most famous attractions, thanks to the raging river that lies below it. 


On your Shotover Canyon swing adventure, you will get to see the canyon from the top-down as you jump from a 109 metre-tall base, plummeting towards the rapids below you. Don't worry, this activity is lead by experienced guides who will provide a full safety briefing before sending you over the edge.


They will educate you on over 70 different jump styles that you can employ on the way down - Some are tame, some are fun, and some are downright crazy. From the seated "Cutaway Jump", which provides a mild rush, to the heart-pounding "Gimp Boy Goes to Hollywood", which drops you towards the canyon upside-down, there are plenty of ways to optimise this activity to meet your desires and needs.


After the tour, you will have the chance to look through a selection of photos and videos taken throughout your swing ride. There will be an opportunity to purchase them if you'd like to keep memories of this adventure forever. Then, once your chest has stopped pounding and your stomach has stopped churning, get dropped off at your original location.


This tour lasts approximately 2.5 hours round-trip. It departs Queenstown daily at 8:30 am, 9:30 am, 11 am, 12 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. Please plan to check in at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled swing time.
