Shipton's Arch - 1/2 Day -1 Day

This tour is a nice get away from the city as you travel by 4X4 through a remote area until you have to stop and set out on a short hike the rest of the way to the arch. As it is hidden in the mountains, it was not rediscovered until May 2000.You will enjoy time at the arch for taking pictures.
    * Prices vary according to group size and season.
