Gibbston Valley Half-Day Canyon Trip

Departing from Queenstown daily
Ages 10+ • 4 Hours • Includes transfers, equipment, guides and lunch on the 9am departure!

The Gibbston Valley canyon is an awesome half-day adventure with plenty of water to play with! We meet you in downtown Queenstown for your check-in and drive about 40 minutes through beautiful wine country out to the Gibbston Valley.

We then kit you out in all the best canyoning-specific equipment and provide a full safety briefing and demonstration from your professional and qualified guide. Just a short 10-minute walk will see you to the canyon start. You are in the canyon for approximately 2 hours, where you get to enjoy abseils of up to 10 metres beside beautiful waterfalls, natural water slides and down climbs.

You can take your own waterproof camera or leave it to us; we take pictures of your whole experience, and you can purchase them afterwards if you wish. If you take our 9am departure, this includes lunch at a selection of Queenstown restaurants.

Gibbston Valley 2-Hour Self Drive

Departing from Queenstown daily
Ages 10+ • 2.5 Hours • Includes equipment and guides

Kick off the action for the day by entering the Gibbston Valley Canyon on a natural waterside, then sit back as your guide descends you down and into the unknown! Feel the excitement of climbing through massive stone walls as you navigate the canyon. Test your thrill-seeking limits by stepping over the edge on your first abseil of the day.

Become one with nature as you experience the impressive power of the water as you abseil down waterfalls. We have 10 minutes of walking time to the canyon. This canyon is an awesome introduction to the sport of canyoning, suitable for non-swimmers and those with a lower level of fitness.

No experience required and all equipment provided. You are led by a qualified and experienced canyoning guide! Enjoy your freedom being out in Gibbston Valley and choose to explore the local tavern or vineyards and cheeseries, as well as breathtaking walks alongside the beautiful Kawarau River.
