Salt + Earth

Salt and Earth

Salt+Earth is not just a place to stay, it’s an experience. A luxury boutique lodge situated on the edge of Lake Te Anau, and within one hour’s drive of New Zealand’s finest trout fishing rivers. 

As the exclusive guests in our architect designed lodge, you are never one of the crowd.  Specialising in personally guided flyfishing, Salt+Earth also provides bespoke guided experiences including, hunting, freediving for lobster, farm tours, scenic flights and hikes. 

If you are a couple with different interests, why not choose different activities?  Meet at the end of the day, kick of your wading boots and share your stories in front of our warming fire or in the cedar hot tub with a glass of the finest local pinot noir and uninterrupted views of the Fiordland mountains. 

Enjoy superb private dining with our Taste Fiordland dining option before retiring to bed at the end of an unforgettable day.  A home away from home, we invite you to immerse yourself in our way of life, know the land and know the people.
