Heli-Adventures at Cedar Lodge (New Zealand)

Looking for a New Zealand fishing lodge where there are activities for your non-angling friends? 

Located on the banks of the Makarora River on New Zealand’s South Island, Cedar Lodge is a fly-out program offering world-class sight-fishing for trophy browns and rainbows accessing these remote rivers by helicopter, but there are plenty of other adventures in the region.  New for the 2023/2024 fishing season, the lodge will be offering heli-biking, heli-hiking, and heli-touring. 

Starting this November, fly over Mt. Aspiring National Park to hike along a ridge framed by glaciers, go canyoneering over emerald pools deep in the rainforest, and mountain bike single track accessible only by helicopter. Keen on something lower-key? Play a jaw-dropping round of golf, taste the region’s famous Pinot Noir, or let the horses do the work through the Southern Alps’ high country.

We have represented Cedar Lodge for over 40 years. Under the professional ownership and management of Eleven Experience, this lodge has been taken to a higher level. Make plans to experience this magical destination Down Under.
