Skippers Canyon

A journey into the backcountry of Queenstown is one to remember, with stunning scenery and historic remains at every corner. 

Skippers Canyon is one of New Zealand's best kept secrets. Travel along on Skippers Road, alongside the Shotover River at a leisurely pace, cross Skippers Bridge, and reach Skippers Point in the Mount Aurum Conservation Area and enjoy a lovely morning tea.

The Unforgettable Skippers Canyon tour is run by Queenstown Heritage Tours and can be arranged with your concierge at Commonage Villas.
