Triple Challenge

The Shotover Triple Challenge is an action packed half day tour incorporating the world famous Shotover Jet, a Helicopter Line Flight and Queenstown Rafting white water rafting. After a short briefing you will be transferred to the Shotover Jet jetty for "the world's most exciting jetboat ride".

Immediately following the jetboat ride, you will be taken to the helipad for an exciting rollercoaster helicopter flight with The Helicopter Line into Skippers Canyon.

Once you are back on terra firma, you will meet your Queenstown Rafting guides and receive instructions on safe paddling techniques. Once in the raft, enjoy peaceful rivers at first to give you time to practice, before reaching the exhilarating rapids of the lower canyon.
