Skippers Canyon

On our short trip in and out of Skippers Canyon, we enjoyed one of the more dramatic landscapes of our visit to New Zealand.

Skippers Canyon - 5 of 8

Skippers Road, part of which you can see in the photo, is pretty scary. It’s not very wide with a long, bumpy fall off to one side. If you have a hire car, the insurance doesn’t cover you to drive Skippers Road.

Skippers Canyon (some part of it) was also use as a location in Lord of the Rings.
