Fiordland Lodge is privileged to sit in a World Heritage Site on the shore of the unforgettable Lake Te Anau. Rolling green meadows dotted with thickets of forest and bush meet snow-capped mountains, painting a gorgeous New Zealand tapestry of unrivalled wilderness and surreal landscapes.

A maximum of 29 guests in 10 luxurious suites can stay in the refined comfort of the lodge or in two self-contained, exclusive log cabins. Each of the private rooms and suites overlooks the picturesque waters and rolling grasslands that surround the property. While being a lakeside resort, it is only a short drive to the nearby tourist town of Te Anau.

While the culinary team is small at the lodge, they deliver huge taste experiences with a farm-to-table philosophy. The kitchen fully utilises local connections, with all produce coming from the farmers, cheesemakers and independent producers of the region. The resident drinks expert will happily provide suggestions to complement your meal, drawing on the list of exquisite vintages, colourful cocktails, fine beers and classic spirits.

Beyond the lodge, you can discover the famed New Zealand countryside in isolated bliss. Guided fishing trips, hikes and walks allow you to savour the real gems of this wonderful and wild land. For the ultimate adventure, hop into a helicopter to get a bird’s-eye view of remote alpine environments before landing atop Mount Luxmore to visit Luxmore Hut. Alternatively, journey underground into the mysterious and captivating Te Anau Glowworm Caves.

Across the lake lies over three million acres of untouched wilderness that makes up the Fiordland National Park, part of the South West New Zealand World Heritage Area.
