    Tour Description

    Queenstown – on New Zealands South Island – is famed for its adrenaline activities, which include bungy jumping, skydiving and jet boating.

    But for those who prefer their adrenaline fix with a good helping of H2O there’s no better way than a half day white water rafting adventure with Queenstown Rafting!

    After heading out of town towards Skippers Canyon you’ll soak up the beautiful surroundings before being briefed on whats to come!

    Starting in the peaceful waters of Deep Creek you’ll learn all the basic techniques needed to tackle this grade 4-5 river before heading into the whitewater rapids of the lower canyon.

    This is where the real fun begins – negotiating sections such as Rock Garden, Sharks Fin, Pinball and Jaws! Then its onwards through the 170m Oxenbridge tunnel before shooting through Cascades Rapid and back to dry land!

    Then it’s a case of winding down with a rallying hot shower, sauna and snack before heading back to Queenstown!
