Nestled in the heart of the Kaimanawa Range, Central North Island lies New Zealand's own Alpine Lodge. Owned and operated by Shane, Nicki & Liam Quinn. World renowned for its Guides, hospitality and big game trophy animals. Not only is their hunting second to none but their three miles of private exclusive backcountry water of the Rangiitkei river holds some of the very best trout fishing I've ever come across. If you like big trout, dry flies, clear water and New Zealand's best hospitality you'll love Alpine Lodge! A truly unique place to incorporate a world-class hunt on top of your fishing trip.

Utilising Can-Am 4x4 or helicopter access, we can get you into the best of the Rangitikei River.

Helicopter transfers to Alpine also available on request.
