Niger Stream is about a 45 minute drive from Wanaka, up the beautiful Matukituki valley. The trip begins with a moderately steep walk up a farm track, which takes 30-40 minutes. During the walk, there are great views across the Matukituki valley and up to the glaciated summit of Mt Avalanche 2603m.
Niger Stream has an excellent variety of activities. At least 3 Abseils (rappels) up to 18m (60’) high with optional jumps from 3-7 meters (10-22’). There is an optional technical slide of 10m (30’) plus several smaller slides of 2-4m (6-12’). The canyon includes several zip lines/tyrolean traverse/flying foxes, plus some swims up to 10m (30’) long.
