New Zealand's Biggest Swing: Nevis Swing Queenstown

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    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.

    My biggest fear is heights but it was our Honeymoon and so we decided to go for the Nevis Swing. My wife was dancing and totally chill before we got hooked up to the rope. Meanwhile I was freaking out just walking onto the bridge. When it was our turn, my wife started to freak

    This is a Queenstown must do!! Do the tandem - do it with a friend or partner and share the experience as it’s way better!! The fear sets in at the top but the drop and swing is amazing!!

    I was apprehensive as this was the first “extreme” activity I had done. The professionalism and slick operation made me feel a lot more safe. Not trying to say I didn’t scream. Because the video proves otherwise. I’d strongly recommend anyone doing it, and buy the video too!

    Feeling of falling is amazing but sadly short lived and after initial rush it is just a swing. Quite expensive for what it is but no regrets. Again with AJHackett, very professional, well organised activity, a must do if you are near Queenstown.
