River Birches offers boutique New Zealand lodge accommodationin Turangi, on the southern edge of Lake Taupo. The lodge provides quiet seclusion and understated luxury accommodation at affordable prices.
The Lodge is centrally located on the North Island, close to the renowned Tongariro Crossing and only footsteps away from the world famous fly fishing on the Tongariro River. The three-room luxury lodge is situated within an established garden and only a fly fisher's throw from one of the river's most famous pools. Other natural attractions like Tongariro National Park and Mount Ruapehu are nearby.
In New Zealand, trout fishing access to rivers is freely available, and large fish are caught regularly. River Birches Lodge is located just metres from the world-renowned Tongariro River. A short walk away, one of the river’s most famous pools – the Major Jones – awaits the early morning angler. Pools fished by Zane Grey and the Duke and Duchess of York are accessible by walking tracks, or a short drive. Beyond the Tongariro lie many more rivers that have made trout fishing in the Taupo region rightly famous, both in New Zealand and around the world.
