Queenstown Canyon

queenstown-canyon

This is a great route just outside the city of Queenstown and is short but quite nice.  It flanks the great Lake Wakatipu and the trailhead grants you a great view of both the lake itself and the nearby Remarkable Mountain Range.  It is commercially operated by canyoning.co.nz and can see high traffic during the summer.  It features one abseil to gain access to the canyon itself and several short but good jumps and many pools and hallways to swim.  Though the narrows are short, they are great.  Lots of fun on this route with easy access.  Like any other route, especially here in NEw Zealand, the difficulty and obstacles of the canyon vary significantly at different water levels.
