We appreciate that not all guests come solely for the fishing. For these guests the options are virtually limitless. You can relax at the enjoy the tranquility of the lodge, pop down to the local café or explore the region.
Just out your door is the Nelson Lakes National Park with many walking trails around the main lake to keep the ornithologist occupied for hours. In addition, some of New Zealand's most renowned wineries are only 45 minutes drive away.
Whether it's a swim in the crystal clear Lake Rotoiti, a trip to Nelson shopping, white water rafting for the more adventurous or simply lying on the beach, we are more than happy to discuss in detail all of the options open to you and make any arrangements you require.
Even feed Mr. Eel, a tame native long finned eel which resides in Black Valley Stream only a few meters away from your accommodation.
If you are not fishing, you are more than welcome to join us on the river for the day – maybe you will even give it a go!
