Meet your guide in central Queenstown for transport to the Nevis Swing. The 40-minute drive takes you through the high country en route to the Nevis Swing site located above the Nevis River. You can go solo or ride in tandem with a friend, or simply be a spectator.
On arrival, you’ll receive a safety briefing and slip into a secure harness before following your guide across a catwalk to the 525-foot-high (160-meter) enclosed platform suspended on cables in midair between the cliffs. Feeling the fear yet? Wait until your guide secures you to the swing mechanism, which lifts you out from the launch deck above the canyon floor.
The real adrenaline-pumping action begins when you’re released into a 100-foot (30-meter) free fall. Reaching speeds up to 75 mph (120 kph), you’ll suddenly sway into a 985-foot (300-meter) arc over the Nevis River valley. You also have the option to ride forward, backward or upside down! Once you stop swinging, you'll be winched back up to the platform.
Photos and videos are available for purchase following your ride on the Nevis Swing. Your half-day tour ends with return transport to Queenstown via shuttle.

Great experience with my two teenagers - they swung, I spectated. Fun bus ride with our driver Skinny including an excellent playlist, and well looked after by the staff especially Ellie. Definitely worthwhile adding to the to do list.
