Shotover Canyon Swing

Experience the World’s highest cliff jump – the Shotover Canyon Swing…


For the ultimate Queenstown adventure holiday – why not try launching yourself off the platform on the edge of a cliff 109m/360ft above the Shotover River?

Reach speeds of over 150kph on the Shotover Canyon Swing and watch the cliff face rush past you in a 60m vertical freefall before the rocks rush towards you when the ropes smoothly swing you past…

At the Canyon Swing platform, your host will fit you into the seat and chest harness and connected to the jump ropes. The unique combination of chest and seat safety keeps your arms and legs free throughout the journey enabling you to safely depart the platform in any position imaginable. Gravity does the rest.

The Shotover River is one of the most spectacular valleys in the region. Soak up the surroundings while your jump master expertly engineers the most thrilling jump of your life.
