The Lindis lodge is another kind of fairy tale. New Zealand’s sophisticated new retreat is a gorgeous example of wild luxury, with a swooping, curved roofline that blends seamlessly into the majestic terrain of the South Island’s remote Ahuriri Valley. Sat on a 6000-acre plot of New Zealand’s finest wilderness and surrounded on three sides by conservation parks, guests will be treated to a truly luxury experience whilst being able to appreciate the peace, and enjoyment, of New Zealand’s wild side. Unsurprisingly, the activities at The Lindis are pretty epic. There’s fly-fishing on the Ahuriri River (ranked one of the world’s best) and high-country horse trekking. You can also zip away on an e-bike, embark on a gnarly off-road buggy adventure, or select an outing from the house “walk menu,” offering a selection of guided and self-navigated jaunts, including the Canyon Creek Heli Walk which lifts off from The Lindis and returns by 4WD vehicle.
