Our activities

We’d like to welcome you to a totally unspoilt area of New Zealand – off the beaten track yet in easy reach of prime South Island destinations within the famous Alpine Pacific Triangle touring route.

When you stay at The Gates Country Lodge, you need look no further. We can arrange all the activities you could wish for, and we also offer four exciting activity packages: jet boating/fishing, backcountry tours, horse trekking, and wine education. All packages are totally flexible – you set the itinerary to suit your pace.

This is a region full of stunning and varied vistas, with activities and attractions to match. Whether you’re into history, hunting or high adventure, there is an unforgettable experience waiting for you here.

From golf to skiing, hiking, mountain biking, helicopter sightseeing and, of course, bungy jumping, the sky is quite literally the limit!
