Shotover River Canyons.

Price from £61 per person

The Shotover Jet experience is an adrenaline rush you'll never forget. After a short transfer to Arthurs Point, board one of the sturdy craft for a thrilling journey on the Shotover River.
It's an amazing ride as the canyon walls tower over you and your driver skillfully whips the boat past rocky outcrops and skims around crags and boulders. This is an area of stunning natural beauty and although the ride is fast and exhilarating, it is suitable for any age group.
