Otahuna Lodge – a Relais and Chateaux luxury lodge outside of Christchurch, New Zealand


Canterbury’s rivers provide excellent chances for both the novice and expert fly-fisherman to test their skills.

Guests benefit from the knowledge of a local guide who will choose a location to ensure the best chances of making a successful catch. Brown and rainbow trout can be caught in both the high country as well as lowland streams from October through April. It is also possible during these months to catch Chinook salmon.

Guides provide licenses, tackle equipment, waders, instruction and transport in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Access to remote mountain streams via helicopter provides an alternative option.
