Our fully equipped 4WD vehicles venture down into Skippers Canyon along the famous Skippers Road. Hacked by hand and clinging to the sheer cliffside, this road is one of the most adventurous roads in the world. High above the Shotover River, enjoy the awe-inspiring scenery from high above the gorge. The Shotover River was known as the richest river in the world in the days of the gold miners. Gold is still being found today, therefore, you may get lucky and find a pot of gold.
“Worth every cent” Amazing drivers and nature is just beautiful! Seeing pictures of the road we were going to, I was a bit nervous, but the drivers are so skilful and they really know what they’re doing. If you want to go to Skippers Canyon, this is the company to go with! – Anna K, Oslo, Norway “Amazing heart-pounding trip” They take you to places that I will never drive. The road to skipper canyon was terrifying yet exciting – so glad we did that trip. The young lady who drove us was a superb driver and very knowledgeable. If you are scared of heights don’t look down. – Abu K, Baltimore, Maryland “Thanks NOMADS and Graham. Great fun, stunning views” I really enjoyed my trip with NOMADS, we had a great bunch of friendly people on board and the driver Graham was an awesome guy, very informative and great fun. The drive up the mountains was an experience and the views were incredible. We got lots of opportunities to stop and take photos whilst admiring the views all around. We couldn’t actually get into the skippers’ canyons due to the slip that had happened on the mountain so instead at the end of the tour we went down to the rivers and drove through them in the 4×4 which had us all screaming with laughter. This more than made up for not getting into skippers canyon. Thanks again guys! – Kelly T, United Kingdom
