Shotover River Canyon Swing

Tour Store

If someone told you to go jump off a cliff… would you do it?

How about if we did? And how about if it was the world’s highest cliff jump? Trust us, you won’t regret it. For freefall without equal this’ll be a heart-pounding highlight of your time in Queenstown.

When it comes to adrenaline-filled, balls-to-the-wall adventure activities in Queenstown we don’t do things by halves and we don’t muck around.

With 60 metres of freefall, the Canyon Swing is the world’s highest cliff jump. It’s a rush like no other. It’s a leap with no equal.

We want your experience with the world’s biggest cliff jump to change the very fabric of your being… and possibly even the fabric of your undies. So you get to decide how you leave the platform and enter, screaming, into the void. Our Swing team adheres closely to The Message: “Don’t push me, ‘cause I’m close the edge.” We aren’t here to rush or crowd you.

Instead, our exceptional bunch of jump masters will safely manage your fear factor. Yes, these masters are slightly unhinged but they’re never less than 100% professional in their dedication to Canyon Swing safety and your personal journey.

They’ll push you (with words) to go that small step beyond what you thought was possible. Only then can you experience the true freedom that comes with that full-throated, adrenalin-fueled scream out into the hungry void.

Venture on to the surprisingly undulating ice terrain in the shadow of the highest peaks of the Southern Alps (Aoraki and Mount Tasman); equipped with glacier boots and crampons and spend the next 2 hours in another world in the mountains. On the return flight home, you’ll fly close by the massive 1,000-metre-high (3,200 feet) Hochstetter Icefall on the eastern face of Aoraki/Mt Cook.
