Skippers Canyon is a picturesque gorge carved by the Shotover River. Exciting tours take you through the history of the canyons and the region. The Skippers Canyon is the historic location where one of the largest gold rushes of Ortago took place. These led to the meteoric rise of the region around Skippers Canyon, and towns such as Charlestown and Skippers Point came up. But as soon as the gold rush died, so did these towns, and their ruins can still be seen in the region.
Skippers Canyon, today, is a major tourist attraction. Some of its most famous activities are the Jet Boat Tour and the Scenic Tour. As the name suggests, the Jet Boat Tour is an exciting way to explore the canyons, weaving through the narrow water of the Shotover while witnessing some spectacular scenery. The scenic tour takes you through the historic land of the gold rush and Winky's Museum, and Sainsbury Gold Claim. It is also famous for its many hiking and biking trails.
