Huka Lodge

    Set along the banks of the Waikato River, this 17-acre resort on New Zealand’s North Island regularly records trout catches of 10 pounds or more from the region’s waters. Huka Lodge, which opened as a fishing camp in the 1920s, offers a four-bedroom cottage that connects to the lodge via a hidden path and affords the resort’s finest view of the nearby falls. Accommodations Twenty deluxe lodge suites with river views and private outdoor terraces. The Owner’s Cottage overlooks the river and features a fireplace, four bedrooms, a large patio and courtyard, and an infinity pool. Recreation Trout fishing, sailing, and kayaking on Lake Taupo; bathing in thermal hot springs; and horseback riding, bungee jumping, hunting, and hiking in the surrounding countryside. Dining Chef Twan Wijers’ five-course offerings of freshwater fish, spring lamb, and other local delicacies change daily. Worthy Diversion Take a helicopter tour of White Island, New Zealand’s most active volcano, where, if conditions are favorable, you can hike up to a lake in the crater. Rates Suites from $975 to $1,510 per person, inclusive of predinner drinks, dinners, and breakfasts. The Owner’s Cottage begins at $1,980 per night.
