Shotover River Rafting

24 March 2017

"An amazing time on the amazing Shotover"

We had a fantastic time on the Shotover with QT Rafting.  Their guides were excellent, they were extremely organised and made sure we had as much fun as possible.  Our rafting guide, Kevin, was exceptional and as all the other guides were also, was very professional, friendly and safe.  The river and the drive there along Skippers Canyon is beautiful. Definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Queenstown.

"Great fun on Shotover River"

I had an amazing time on the Shotover River. Our guide Tim was great and brought us safely back ashore despite relatively high water levels as it was raining the night before.  I can recommend the Shotover River Rafting to anyone who is looking for a thrill because it really is!  Rafting this beautiful river is certainly more exciting than taking the jetboat which is another option offered. Thanks to Queenstown Rafting and Tim for the great day!

"Clear waters & Great views "

What a great start to the day, the Shotover River is just beautiful, crystal clear water, great views everywhere you look, big canyons. The drive in was fantastic , down into Skippers Canyon.  Remember to end with a nice wine & snack at the bar/cafe over looking the river, great way to spend a few hours.  Thanks team, see you next time.

My husband and I had never done any white water rafting. This was so exciting and so much fun. The scenery that you pass through on the trip is quite breathtaking. The guides are very experienced and made me feel very safe. A fantastic day out. The rafting trip takes you along 16 km of the Shotover river. Thoroughly recommended!

"Thrilling Experience!"

A fantastically exciting bus ride down one of NZ's most dangerous 4WD tracks starts of this experience. The views were absolutely stunning as we got to see some of South Island's majestic mountains up close.  Steep cliffs above and below us almost the whole way!  Rafting on all levels of rapids down the beautiful blue Shotover river with a highly entertaining group of guides! And we got to see the historic gold mining and panning locations and bits and pieces of the old equipment is still lying about! Perfect for all levels of adrenaline junkies :D

"A New Zealand Must Do!!"

We did this trip as a 30th birthday experience and what an experience it was!! We chose the Shotover River rafting trip and were a little nervous as we'd never rafted before, but our nerves were forgotten as soon as we met our guide and driver! They were so fun and knowledgeable and their experience really shows!
We didn't stop laughing and smiling for the entire time - this is definitely a Must Do for anyone's New Zealand trip!!

“Awesome Day!”

We had a fantastic day rafting on the Shotover river. Service and knowledge from the company and instructors were top class. The flow was fantastic due to a heavy rainfall the night before we went, this made the rapids to be strong and really good to go on. We always felt safe on the rafts with the experienced instructors. We had Casey who was brilliant! The journey through skippers canyon is an experience on its own... 'supposedly the 13th most dangerous road in the world!'
Definately recommend this, definately worth the money you pay!
