Attractions near the Shotover Lodge
Traverse Skippers Canyon
Shotover Lodge is ideally located near Skippers Canyon. You can choose to walk the area and admire the views, but the most renowned way to see this region is from the water. Sign up with one of the boat tour companies that let you experience the canyon from the Shotover River.
Shotover Jet and Skippers Canyon Jet are two of the most popular companies in the area. This exhilarating experience gives you breathtaking views as you're being driven around at high speeds, performing 360-degree turns across rapids. After seeing the canyon from the water, you may want to book a helicopter tour for another perspective.
Relaxation at Onsen Hot Pools
You can find the perfect way to relax at Onsen Hot Pools located on the hills surrounding Queenstown. Submerge yourself in warming temperatures after a day of activity while you look out at the mountain scenery. You might even want to visit Onsen at night for the ultimate viewing experience.
The water used in the pools comes from natural sources – springs, rain and lake – and the temperature is adjusted to suit the warmth of the day. Each tub can fit four adults and tubs can be booked for private relaxation.
