Queenstown, NZ

Glenorchy/Skippers Canyon

First, we drive around 45 minutes up to the head of Lake Wakatipu - Glenorchy. This is where the two main rivers, Dart and Rees flow into the lake. The area is well known for amazing landscapes which feature lakes, rivers, mountains, farmland, and forest.​ The Queenstown to Glenorchy road won't disappoint and is a classic New Zealand scenic drive.​ In Glenorchy, we visit the famous boat shed and wharf and then travel further beyond into the Paradise Valley. After around 1 hour exploring the valley, we head back to Glenorchy for lunch. 

In the afternoon, we travel back towards Queenstown and then into Skippers Canyon. The scenery in Skippers is completely different from what you experience on the Glenorchy/Paradise section. It features the Shotover River and backcountry terrain. 

This tour has the best of both worlds and is a staff favourite.
