The cruise starts in the calm waters before racing down the rapids! You will even ride through a 170-meter-long tunnel before the grand finale of the small waterfall… A guaranteed adrenaline rush!

After your rafting experience, you can enjoy a sauna and a nice warm shower. You'll return to the entrance to Skippers Canyon from where you can admire magnificent views over the Wakatipu Basin. At the end of this exhilarating adventure, you will be driven back to Queenstown.
