Lodge - Lake Coleridge

Our Lodge at Lake Coleridge is our primary base. A modern, roomy 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom lodge situated at the picturesque Lake Coleridge in the iconic Rakaia Valley in the Canterbury High Country. A pleasant 1 hour and 10 minute drive from Christchurch International Airport. We provide pick up and drop off from Christchurch. Our Lodge is situated in the centre of New Zealand's South Island, amidst spectacular mountain country and on the doorstep of our East of the Alps free range Tahr, Red Stag and Chamois hunting areas. We also have very good waterfowl hunting and fresh water fishing on our doorstep. Our Lodge also serves as the ideal staging point for our West Coast hunts. A pleasant scenic drive from the lodge, or a bush plane flight over the Southern Alps takes us from the Lodge and our Eastern hunting territories to our hunting areas on the western side of the Alps.

Awesome hunting experience

I enjoyed the opportunity to hunt some of New Zealand’s quality game birds. The exceptional care the outfitter took to accomodate myself and my family gave me an experience of a lifetime!

Daniel United States 9.3 of 10

My brother and I were looking for a New Zealand hunting adventure. James provided everything we expected and more. Would do it again in an instant.

I liked everything. From the accommodation, to the landscape, to the hunting. We ended up with two Bull Tahr and one red stag in a four day hunt. Saw more animals than I'd seen in years.

There is nothing I didn't like.

Amazing time for an experienced Alaskan hunter

The entire trip from touchdown at the airport until we had our thropies down were above and beyond our expectations. James and his team are "real" hunters who understand the lifestyle. My wife and I are born and raised Alaskan's who grew up hunting, we felt right at home with James and his team. I whole heartedly recommend James, he will not disappoint.

It was an adventure of a lifetime

What an amazing adventure and experience! James is the most polite and experienced guide I ever hunted with, with the ability to adapt to different circumstances and making the most out of every opportunity without compromising safety and assuring the best trophy. It was an adventure of a lifetime.
