Situated in the Otago region of the South Island in New Zealand, Shotover River as the name suggests is a fast-flowing river with several rapids. Flowing for a length of 75 kms, the river originates from the Southern Alps and flows southwards through the Skippers Canyon, between the Richardson Mountains and the Harris Mountains and finally drains into Kawarau River which is east of Queenstown. Considered to be an ‘aquatic playground’ owing to its numerous rapids which make the river a hotbed for water sports like rafting, kayaking etc. the spot is also extremely scenic and attracts a major tourist influx even only for sightseeing.
Although there are many recreational activities and adventure sports options available at the spot, the highlight of the river is the white water river rafting. Passing under tunnels and bumping over the rapids, the activity is extremely thrilling and is sure to give anyone a major adrenaline rush.
