HELICOPTER – SHOTOVER RAFTING
Combine the thrill of whitewater rafting with a spectacular helicopter flight high above the Shotover River, Queenstown!
A short but scenic flight takes you over Skippers saddle and follows the twist and turns of the narrow canyon walls before landing at the rafting launch site at Deep Creek.
It is here that you will learn the ins and outs of white-water rafting from your skilled guides during the safety briefing. Secure your helmet and life jacket, grab a paddle and jump on board the rafts to take up the challenge of rafting the mighty Shotover River.
