Overview
This half-day Queenstown canyoneering adventure is action-packed! You’ll walk through an ancient beech forest to a steep-walled canyon, where you’ll spend 1.5 to 2 hours descending by zipline, abseiling (rappelling) down waterfalls, plunging into natural pools, floating down narrow passageways and cascading down chutes. Expert guides ensure your safety and provide alternate routes depending on skill level. No experience is necessary, but this activity does require a moderate level of fitness. Wetsuits, safety equipment and waterproof footwear are provided.
What to Expect
You'll begin your trip at our Adventure Centre, right in the heart of Queenstown 15 minutes before departure, where you'll sign in and meet your guide for the day in our departure lounge. Your guide for the day will then give you a short trip briefing all necessary paperwork will be completed and we are ready to set off.
We will then drive for 15 minutes to our purpose built operations base where you will be kitted out in a wetsuit, booties, a helmet and all necessary safety equipment including harnesses. We have heated change rooms, showers and toilet facilities. We also have a locker facility where you can leave your towels and a change of clothes for the day. We will then drive a further 5 minutes to the canyon at 12 Mile Delta along the spectacular Lake Wakatipu. 
Following a safety briefing, our guides will take you on a short walk to the Queenstown canyon through a beautiful, ancient beech forest that hides the high-walled canyon. You will then embark on a 1 hour 30 minute to 2 hour decent of the canyon. You will be given alternative routes at all times if you are feeling uncomfortable with certain aspects or if you want to challenge yourself a little more, we have options to suit everyone. You will have the opportunity to try leaping through waterfalls into crystal clear pools, flying across the canyon on ziplines, navigating your way through riverbeds, abseiling down cliffs, sliding down nature slides, and swimming through stunning chasms. Once we exit the canyon we then head back to the Operations Base, where everyone will change and hot and cold refreshments will be provided. 
This tour requires a moderate level of fitness and a medium level of water confidence.

Worth it

Really good experience. Friendly staff, top notch safety and the canyon in 15mins from the town centre, meaning time spent in the minivan is kept to a minimum. Some good jumps, zip lining and abseiling. Thoroughly recommend, especially given the beautiful locale.
