Get wet and wild in our pristine waters by canyoning in the Routeburn Valley or packrafting the Rees Valley

Canyoning
8hrs - 9am (from Queenstown, guests can join in Glenorchy)
Explore places that are normally inaccessible, giving you a true sense of isolation where you can take in all the natural beauty that surrounds. After a 30 minute ascending walk through spectacular native rain forest along the world-renowned Routeburn Track, serious adventure and excitement will begin. Once in the canyon, you will abseil, jump into crystal clear pools, zipline over native bush, navigate through narrow passageways and slide down chutes. Lunch, tea and coffee provided, guests get approx 3hrs canyoning.

This canyon is suited to people that have a strong level of fitness, water confidence and a real sense of adventure! Minimum age is 15, and children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Packrafting
8-10hrs - 8am (from Queenstown, guests can join in Glenorchy)
First you'll stretch your legs with a gorgeous walk up the Rees Valley, under the watchful eye of the towering Earnslaw Glacier, to 25 Mile Creek for a well deserved lunch break. Then it's time to unload and inflate the boats for some training before attempting to check out an amazing (flow dependent) slot canyon. The remainder of the afternoon is spent cruising down shingle bed rapids, enjoying the stunning scenery, and improving your packrafting skills!
