What You'll Get


The Routeburn canyon is a full sensory experience.

You’ll begin your trip at the Adventure Centre in Queenstown where you’ll sign in and meet your guide for the day. From here, it is 10 minutes to the canyoning base to be fitted with canyoning gear.

We then head off on a scenic drive along the shores of Lake Wakatipu, passing through Glenorchy and into Mount Aspiring National Park’s Routeburn Valley.

At the Routeburn Valley, we will get changed into the equipment provided and following a 25 minute ascending walk through native rain forest along world-renowned Routeburn Track, it is time for your canyoning adventure to 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.

Before heading back to Queenstown, you’ll get to relax in the beautiful surrounds of the Routeburn Valley with a picnic lunch, tea and coffee.

This canyon is suited for people with a high level of fitness and water confidence. The minimum age is 15, and children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
