Wilderness Lodge Lake Moeraki
In the heart of Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area...where the Tasman Sea meets ancient rainforest.
...Spectacular beaches, home to fur seals and crested penguins, untouched lowland rainforests spread between pristine lakes and rivers which drain the snow capped Southern Alps.
Few places on earth can match the unique natural setting of the Wilderness Lodge Lake Moeraki in the heart of the 2.7 million hectare South West New Zealand World Heritage Area, Te Wahipounamu (Maori translation: the place of greenstone jade).
You are invited to explore our rainforest trails, canoe on Lake Moeraki and join our nature guides on journeys of discovery in one of the most wild and natural places left on earth.
The Lodge is a paradise for nature lovers and for those wanting a relaxing retreat away from the pressures of the modern world. On arrival we give you a copy of our current activities programme, maps and information.
Forget your car for a couple of days, settle in and explore.
Radiating from the Lodge is a network of rainforest and Tasman seacoast walks. In front of the Lodge there is a fleet of canoes for you to explore the Moeraki River and you can paddle the short distance up the river to the Lake.
Our guided activities programme changes every day and introduces you to the best of what the area has to offer.
See the sample programme below that shows some of the nature activities that may be offered during your stay.
