Riverview is renowned for landing big wiley trout (10+ pounds) & has access to some of New Zealands most unfished terrain including over 15 rivers within a 1 hour radius of the lodge.

Some areas are so remote helicoptering in is the only option. From fly fishing small crystal-clean spring fed creeks to large wilderness waters, a day out with a Riverview fishing guide is an experience of a lifetime.

Riverview Lodge prides itself for its big fish, breath taking landscapes & friendly hosts who value good old fashioned hospitality & fine New Zealand cuisine. Based only 90 mins north of Christchurch International airport in the Alpine thermal resort town of Hanmer Springs there are many activities for the non fisherman ie. day spa & massage.
