Wilderness Lodges - Lake Moeraki (West Coast) & Arthur's Pass (Canterbury)


Wilderness Lodge Lake Moeraki - West Coast

New Zealand’s premier nature lodge is surrounded by the rainforests of Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area on the pristine shores the Moeraki River. Located beside Highway Six between Franz Josef (1.5 hours) and Wanaka (2.5 hours). The inclusive Wilderness Lodge experience incorporates luxurious accommodation, delicious fresh food and an array of guided nature adventures. 

 

Twice daily shorter complimentary trips are a fun and relaxed way for guests to discover the forests, waterways and wildlife alongside local ecologist guides. Long trips (extra charge) are the best way to gain a deeper understanding of the NZ wilderness, see penguins and experience one of the most remote and wild corners of the country. Guests can also explore a network of walking trails on their own, borrow a kayak or fish for a renowned Lak Moeraki brown trout.
