Bridge to Nowhere Lodge - Whanganui River

Bridge to Nowhere Lodge is a unique place. Located deep in the Whanganui National Park wilderness region, we are the only Whanganui River accommodation of this kind in the area. There are no roads to us, access is by our jet boat or canoeing.


Per night
$50.00 - $160.00


Perched high above the river and surrounded by native bush the only access is by the lodge's jet boat service, canoe, by foot or helicopter.

The Lodge offers comfortable double/twin share accommodation along with family bunk rooms.

Rooms have magnificent bush and river views with French doors opening onto the balcony.

Either cater for yourself in our kitchen or sit back and relax and enjoy a generous buffet dinner and breakfast in the morning. Our licensed bar offers a selection of New Zealand wines and beers to compliment your meal. Enjoy your meals in the dining room or on the balcony overlooking the river.

In the evenings take a stroll and discover our glow worms or just sit back and be amazed by our beautiful night sky.
