The Lodge

ABOUT THE PROPERTY

Tucked in the shadow of the remote peaks of the Southern Alps of New Zealand, Cedar Lodge is a fly fishing and adventure lodge like none other, offering immaculately appointed accommodations well off the beaten path. Fly fishers in the know consider New Zealand the trophy trout capital of the world for good reason. With an illustrious reputation in its own right, and known for massive brown and rainbow trout and pristine, gin clear water, Cedar Lodge offers the ultimate opportunity to target trophy trout.   With more than 30 years of heli-fishing experience exclusively in the South Island region, the award-winning Cedar Lodge is considered the South Island’s premier fly fishing lodge. Eleven Experience is honored to work with Chris and Shauna Daughters during this transition, and to carry on the legendary tradition of Cedar Lodge.   Perfect for the angler and non-angler alike, Cedar Lodge guests can enjoy intimate tours of New Zealand’s most renowned wineries, helicopter assisted hiking, and, of course, world-class helicopter assisted fly fishing led by highly knowledgeable and experienced local guides. Our guided vacation packages are tailored to make you feel at home on the South Island while putting you in front of wild trout on New Zealand’s most picturesque and exotic waters.

Cedar Lodge is nestled away, in the rural valley of Makarora, otherwise known as the “timeless land” and considered a special place to the locals. It’s stunning and seemingly endless mountains, pristine waters, wildlife and serenity easily captivate anyone who visits. The lodge is easily accessible by car, charter plane via the Makarora airstrip, and helicopter. By placing the entire country on a strict lockdown, New Zealand has been successful in essentially eliminating the virus within its borders.
