Check out 71 metres of wild gravity deep in the wilderness of the Shotover River Gorge.

The Queenstown Skippers Canyon Bridge Bungy is kept operational by the AJ. Hackett Company specifically for special events and corporate conferences. One popular event is a ‘Full Moon Bungy’ available for group bookings, where up to 40 people can enter into the canyon for a midnight jump.

These special events involve a 4WD Landover journey into the rugged canyon as part of this ultimate wilderness adventure. The perfect ‘Mission Impossible’ team-building scenario, guaranteed to challenge and motivate corporate staff members, private parties and social groups.

Skipper’s Canyon at the head of the Shotover River is New Zealand’s own ‘Grand Canyon’, and was an important gold mining area in the 1860’s. Hundreds of miners camped down in the gorge braving freezing winters and severe spring floods.

Access to both the Skippers and Pipeline bungy sites is by 4WD vehicles over roads that were hewn out of rock by manual labour. Include time to visit the fascinating nearby stone school house and historic Mt Aurum homestead. To complete this outstanding backcountry experience you can hire mountain bikes and ride awesome single tracks through the gorge.

Bookings for the Skipper’s Canyon bungy can be made through the Conference and Incentive Coordinator at the AJ. Hackett Company office.
