Overview
Thrill-seekers in New Zealand’s ‘adventure capital’ will love free-falling over the river on the Shotover Canyon Swing. A jump instructor prepares both first-timers and seasoned daredevils to swing solo or tandem along a special rope and cable system suspended between two cliffs. You’ll swing safely in a secure harness and hear encouragement throughout your pendulum ride above the Shotover River.

Staff refused to confirm I was properly strapped in the harness to then push me, the video showed they were all making fun of me behind me. Not cool.

These were the words I screamed down the Exhilarating 60m drop, then the sing afterward just felt so peaceful. The staff were awesome, especially our driver Lachie. Thanks guys!
