Our journey down the Shotover River was amazing, a fantastic experience, such a buzz and an adrenaline ride. The journey began in the bus ride from the Shotover base travelling through Skippers Cannyon which is a must do on its own. The road is one of the scariest I have ever travelled but it was amazing and can only be accessed with Queenstown Rafting. The road is famous for its twists and turns, tight corners and cliff edges which we travelled very closely to. The journey was about 45 mins and provided spectacular if not hairy and scary views of Skippers Cannyon. The gravel road all adds to the excitement which was building. The commentary and safety briefing along the way provided by one of the guides made the trip even more enjoyable and very humorous. I think his deliberate and well rehearsed humour took our minds off the rugged journey we were experiencing. Arriving at the Shotover River rafts were launched, a safety briefing given and we were on our way. The picturesque and serene journey, mixed with excitement of the rapids was amazing. It was so much fun. We were on the water for about 2 hours and were lucky enough to be there after it had rained so the river was flowing nicely. Would do it again in a heart beat.
