Lake Coleridge Lodge (Canterbury's best kept secret) offers exceptional value for money hospitality in the stunning Rakaia River Valley and Southern Alps. Open all year, visitors can see the area in all its dramatic seasons. Enjoy our sauna, spa and chip & putt golf or many of the popular activities like hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and 4WD adventures. Numerous beautiful alpine lakes offer a picturesque and tranquil environment with world-class salmon and trout fishing. At nearby Terrace Downs Resort there are a range of activities including golf on one of New Zealand’s top courses. In winter, some of the South Island’s finest ski fields are close by including Mt Hutt, Porters and Mt Olympus. Just an hour’s drive from Christchurch International Airport, the Lodge is surrounded by history with a nationally significant Arboretum and New Zealand’s first state-owned hydroelectric power station, both just a short stroll away. Perfect for couples, groups and corporate escapes, discover the Canterbury High Country from our comfortable lodge.
