Start your trip with a scenic drive along the shores of Lake Wakatipu, passing through Glenorchy and into the Mt Aspiring National Park's Routeburn Valley.

In the canyon, you will abseil, jump into crystal clear pools, zip line over native bush, navigate through narrow passageways and slide down chutes. Our guides will instruct you through all of the features and if you are feeling confident, it may be possible to abseil yourself or take on the big 6m jump.

Lunch, tea/coffee & all equipment provided. Private changing facilities.
