Amazing experience! Felix does an excellent job of hosting/managing the lodge. I fished for 6 days with excellent guides (Paul and David) and the fishing was exceptional (we were very fortunate with the weather!). My wife hiked, visited wineries and saw the sights all organized by Felix and Marci. Excellent cuisine by the chef Ryan. This was our third second... More

My wife and I have just spent a fantastic 4 days holiday at the Owen River Lodge. I am a keen fly fisherman and our host Felix organised wonderful horse riding for my non fishing wife. I found the fishing ,location, accommodation and food to be world class. If you are fishing the south island of NZ, I strongly suggest... More

The temptation is to rubbish Owen River Lodge to keep it a hidden secret. However, as virtually all reviews are of like mind, I am unlikely to succeed in keeping this to myself. My second trip, this time in the summer was in glorious sunshine. The good weather comes with a price; many rivers are lower than usual and so... More

My family had the pleasure of staying at Owen River Lodge for 2 nights. The spacious cottages are immaculate with a very comfortable king size bed and beautiful views of the river. The meals were beautiful and chef Ryan made an amazing 3 course meal each night. Felix is a wonderful host making us feel extremely welcome and immediately at... More

Three nights at the Owen River Lodge was just not enough time to be in the place I'd love to be forever. It WAS enough time however to explore some of the most beautiful stretches of the Owen River for either a swim (me) or to catch a whopping 8 pounder brown trout (husband…so proud!). The fishing was fantastic and... More

Thank you Felix for another incredible week at Owen River Lodge. Where do we begin to express our feelings …? The lodge - offers the warmth and friendliness of a country inn. The cabin rooms are large offering simple elegance with natural light. Each room offers a view which is an eye wash every morning, noon and night...imagine a pallet... More

We have just returned home from our fourth trip to Owen River Lodge, and I'm checking the calendar to book in our dates for next year. Why do we keep going back? Because Felix makes it his mission to optimise our fishing time. Starting the day with a big breakfast, we are off fishing for the entire day with a... More

This is the first review I have ever given on trip Advisor as I think it is important when you have a travel experience that is exceptional you should let others know. The Owen River Lodge is located on the Owen River and every room has an amazing view with a porch to enjoy. The photos on the website don’t... More

Felix has built one of the finest fishing lodges in his entire hemisphere, the best in the world for sighted brown trout, IMHO. Our 3 days there were over all too soon but the memories will last a lifetime. Excellent accommodation, superb cuisine, incredible attention to detail, and wonderful friends made around the table at dinner combined to make our... More
