Get an action-packed, serious white water rafting adventure on the famous Shotover River combined with an epic helicopter ride over Skippers Canyon!
The day begins with a 7-minute rollercoaster helicopter ride over the stunningly beautiful Skippers Canyon, famous for its exciting cliff edges and gold mining history. This is a world famous canyon, jam-packed with relics, workings and incredible stories of gold discovery. It is an incredible sightseeing experience, the ULTIMATE way to travel to Deep Creek to start your rafting adventure.
After taking off for your thrilling helicopter ride, you will enjoy breathtaking views of spectacular Skippers Canyon, Wakatipu Basin, historic Skippers Road and Coronet Peak Ski Area before landing at impressive Shotover River's “put-in” point.
Next, meet your river guide before beginning your whitewater rafting journey through the spectacular canyon. You will be kitted out with all the gear you need and receive an extensive safety briefing so you know exactly how to handle the exhilarating rapids. Peaceful waters at the entrance of Skippers Canyon let you ease into your adrenaline-packed trip. It won't be long before you will be shooting through the lower canyon and its famous grade 3-5 rapids. You’ll get to paddle Aftershock, Squeeze, Toilet, Oh Sh*t, Pinball and Jaws to name a few. Raft the 170m Oxenbridge Tunnel before shooting Cascade Rapid to round off your adventure.
