Full description
Begin your trip at the Adventure Center in Queenstown to sign in and meet your guide for the day in the departure lounge. Receive pre-trip safety information and check your suitability for the trip. From here, take the 10-minute van transfer to the canyoning base to get fitted out with all of your canyoning gear.

Then, head off on a stunning scenic drive along the shores of Lake Wakatipu, passing through Glenorchy and into Mount Aspiring National Park’s Routeburn Valley. At the Routeburn Valley, get changed into the equipment provided and get you ready for your canyoning adventure. After a safety information talk, set off on foot on a 30-minute ascending walk through the spectacular native rain forest along the world-renowned Routeburn Track until it is time for the serious adventure and excitement to begin.

Once in the canyon, abseil, jump into crystal clear pools, zipline over native bush, navigate through narrow passageways and slide down chutes. The guides will instruct you through all of the features and if you are feeling confident, it may be possible to abseil yourself or take on one of the bigger jumps. Before heading back to Queenstown, get to relax in the beautiful surroundings of the Routeburn Valley with a picnic lunch, tea, and coffee.
