Luxury New Zealand Lodges

Many of us wonder if we’ll ever have the chance to fish New Zealand’s stories waters. Fewer can consider doing it in the style offered by places like Solitaire Lodge and Treetops Lodge and Estate, which are members of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and offer unparalleled access — via helicopter — to pristine fisheries. Sue Gough Henly writes about the two lodges, whose guides fish many of the same waters. “I recently visited two lodges (one on a lake and one tucked into the forest) near the geothermal centre of Rotorua, which some say is the trout fishing capital of the world. Solitaire Lodge and Treetops Lodge and Estate are within 40 minutes’ drive of 14 lakes while more than 60 rivers and streams criss-cross the region. Eleven of the lakes and most streams are open for fly- or boat-fishing year round, with fishing at its best from October through June.”
