Flight 103 - land in the historic gold mining country
Historic Skippers Canyon is the heart of the region's gold mining history.
Skippers Canyon was a rugged and unforgiving home to many prospectors during the times of the Central Otago gold rush.
Explore this area from the air to get an understanding of just how challenging it would have been to mine this land in the late 19th century. Fly over Coronet Peak and follow the Shotover River as it meanders through the canyons while your pilot points out the many landmarks and remnants of gold mining times. After an alpine landing you'll return via Ben Lomond Saddle and Lake Wakatipu.
