It is a naturally carved canyon fed by the crystal clear waters of a high alpine lake. This trip is great if you’re pressed for time but looking to squeeze in an adventure. If you’ve got a day to spare join us on the full day Routeburn trip and challenge yourself in a truly stunning rainforest environment. Embark on an adrenalin-packed expedition for the experience of a lifetime! « less

This was one of my favourite activities in Queenstown! I wasnt booked into doing this but decided last minute to join my friends and I am so glad that I did! The guides were amazing! They were the funniest guys, and made the experience so much better! Hopefully I will be able to come back soon!

It was the first canyoning in my life, so wasn't sure what to expect. I was quite scared in the beginning but as soon as you do your first slide you just love all of it. Water is cold but you don't really feel it. Recommend to anyone wanting to try something different. The crew was great too, big thanks... More

Activities in Queenstown are expensive and if your budget is limited and you are after maximum bang for your buck then Routeburn Canyoning is one to try. Very well run, outstanding staff and very safety conscious. Lots of thrills in stunning river canyon's and it's a full day trip. Will do it again when next in Queenstown

This was my fav activity in Queenstown! The drive to the Routeburn Canyon was through beautiful country side, we were even stuck for a bit as there were cows all over the road. Other members of our group hopped out and helped heard the cows so we were on our way again soon. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.... More

This was a good day despite the cold water. I was not sure all what this activity in tallied but it was sure shown to me with a splash! No looking back now I said to myself. The first slide of the Routeburn is crazy as you go down backwards. This was great fun! It got even more challenging for... More

We have been canyoning one other time. This was much more varied and ALOT of fun. The water is cold and the hike up to the routeburn canyon is challenging in sock feet but the trip is great. It's a thrilling day with fun people. The guides are safety conscious and entertaining. The ONLY downside is the smelly wet suits... More

This was an afternoon well spent! We had a blast! The guides were always looking out for our safety and a lot of fun to hang out with. Plus you get a variety of activities like swimming, cliff jumping, zip lining (including the James bond move) as well as seeing the beautiful NZ scenery up close. Highly recommended!

I am generally not the water sport type of person. This surely scared the hell out of me! But i must say it was absolutely fun! I did the half day routeburn canyoning. Let's just say you'll get tired even for half a day! Ben was great always assuring, so was Jumbo and Sebestian. The team was just awesome, friendly... More

What a great work out?! Ben and Jumbo (and photo man Sebastian) were all awesome. It might have been less than 15degC in the mountain canyon but it was absolutely awesome! Great fun. Thanks guys!!
