Enjoy a half day heritage 4WD adventure through the breathtaking scenery that surrounds Queenstown.
The Skippers Canyon tour departs from Queenstown and follows the rugged and once treacherous Skippers Road. Hacked by hand into the sheer cliffside of the Shotover River you will gain a new-found admiration for the explorers who once roamed here. As your experienced guide expertly navigates the canyon sit back and enjoy the completely unspoilt views and dramatic lookouts.
After a photo stop at historic Skippers Bridge continue on to the abandoned township of Skippers, where many of the old original buildings remain, perfect for exploration. Refreshments are served at the old school house before starting your journey back to Queenstown stopping to try your luck panning for gold at Deep Creek, allegedly one of the richest gold bearing rivers in the world!
