- ABOUT THE SPOT
Canyoning in Queenstown 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 here in Queenstown. Grasp the opportunity to descend into the creeks and streams of Queenstown canyon and feel the thrill of going down among sharp and steep rocks. The water comes directly from Lake Isobel.
Swim through narrow passageways and fight the waterfalls. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit and a towel with you!
