Queenstown is considered by many as the capital of extreme sports. It is situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand, and is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps.

Shotover River begins its course from the Southern Alps and runs through the magnificent Skippers Canyon before it merges with Kawarau River. Shotover River extends up to 60 km/37 mi and has many rapids, twists and turns. Here, at 357 ft / 109 m above the river, you can prepare yourselves for the ultimate adrenaline rush making the world’s highest cliff diving.

Once you jump from the cliff-based platform, you will enjoy the 60 m/196 ft free-fall down into the canyon and among the wild rocks. You will then experience the 656 ft / 200 m giant swing and act as a pendulum yourself! The journey ends with a couple of breathtaking swings, before you come to a rest at approximately 60 m/196 ft below the platform.

Closed-toe shoes is a prerequisite.
