Unforgettable Skippers Canyon

A visit to Skippers Canyon is one of the best tours to do in Queenstown. You will visit Queenstown’s backcountry and gain an insight into the wonderland of Skippers Canyon. World famous for the gold rush, it is steep in history and offers a goldmine of photo opportunities for you to encounter.

During 4 hours, embark on this true kiwi experience. You travel in comfortable 4WD minibuses, forward-faced and equipped with big viewing windows; you can’t miss the spectacular grandeur of Skippers Canyon. We will invite you to step out of the minibus quite frequently. If you choose to do this, you will have all the time you need to take timeless pictures of the breathtaking landscapes.

One of the highlights on this tour is the outdoor picnic. While you connect to Skippers Canyon’s historic past by strolling through the restored Skippers Schoolhouse we prepare some refreshments: home-made cheese, coffee or tea accompanied by some sweet biscuits make this tour in Queenstown truly unforgettable.
