Experience the World’s #1 Canyon Swing

Imagine a giant rope swing in a canyon. Yes, this exists in only one place in the World! Here in Shotover, Queenstown, New Zealand! So come and experience true freedom by making the most exhilarating jump of your life, or if you don’t have the bottle to jump yourself, which is fair, then you can ask an instructor to give you the push you need to have a wail of a time swinging. At 60 metres, this is the world’s highest cliff jump, which you can freefall! The Canyon Swing is truly a unique thrill. They have been in operation since 2002 and have always been locally owned. Photographers will take mid-swing action shots of you, which they can personalise and edit upon request, even in the short form for your socials and media. Refer to the below details to see the cost for photos and videos.
