Shotover River Heli-Raft

We hunt the biggest rapids on the Shotover River, rafting where the Jet boats fear to go with a group of legendary raft guides from all around the world. For a real sense of adventure take a helicopter over the famous Skippers Canyon. That’s right jump in a Helicopter on Coronet Peak and fly through the canyon, right above the river you are about to raft.

Gut wrenching drops in your stomach, pumping white water and thrills to last a lifetime await you and your crew. We offer an adrenaline filled paddle journey like no other paired with a thrilling helicopter ride dropping you at the start of the Shotover River experience.

Meet our rapids, toilet, squeeze, jaws and Oh Sh*t to name a few before paddling the famous Oxenbridge tunnel right into cascade arriving back at base for a hot shower.
