Canyoning in Earnslaw Canyon, Queenstown, Otago New Zealand
The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
If you are into extreme adventures, canyoning is one of the best activities you can experience in Earnslaw Canyon, near Rees River in the north part of Lake Wakatipu. A helicopter will take you from Queenstown and leave you in Rees Valley from where you will head towards the canyon.
Enjoy the unique experience of 1640 ft / 500 m of vertical descent, up to 20 abseils/rappels and feel the thrill of going down among sharp and steep rocks. Swim through narrow passageways and fight the waterfalls. The Earnslaw Canyon is addressed to the experienced canyoners.
Note: Necessary equipment provided by operators.
