One of the finest lodges I've seen -- anywhere. Located in a narrow valley several miles from the nearest town, it's quiet, relaxing and comfortable. The food is outstanding, as is the wine list. Felix and the staff will do whatever it takes to make your stay an enjoyable one.
The lodge is 50 yards from the river and some of the best fishing on the South Island. The guides are unsurpassed in both their knowledge of the fishery and their ability to put their client in the proper position to hook the most challenging fish.
This is the second year we've stayed at Owen River Lodge. We're coming back next year. Wouldn't miss it.
