The Shotover Canyon Swing is achieved by launching yourself from a 109 metre-high platform over the mighty Shotover River. First, the Shotover Swing will catapult you into an intense 200m canyon swing across the river. Then, you’ll free-fall 60m, rushing past the steep, rocky cliff face. Canyon swinging offers multiple great jump styles - each is unique and offers its own awesome thrill.
