Eco Luxury wildnerness walks with Treetops Lodge in New Zealand

Last updated on

The Treetops Luxury Lodge and Estate started as a man’s dream of restoring the magnificent trees and habitat that was his playground as a child. The eco luxury lodge is nestled in the heart of New Zealand’s thermal therapy and trout-fishing capital, Rotorua. Guests to the Treetops Luxury Lodge and Estate are invited to explore New Zealand’s internationally renowned abundance of flora and fauna.

Starting in December, Treetops Luxury Lodge guests are offered guided walks in the lush 800-year native forests and valleys of the 2500-acre secluded wilderness estate. For the following two months, guests at the Treetops Luxury Lodge can explore the spectacular scenic views, ancient rainforests, waterfalls, lakes and trout stream visits as well as native wildlife.

The hour-long nature walks are led by Department of Conservation postgraduates and student Environmental specialists twice a day. Catering to each guest’s interests, guides may also include activities like bird watching, observing deer or buffalo herds and discovering indigenous herbs and food used by the Maori, the native people of New Zealand.

The Treetops Lodge also encourages guests to go off on their own and offers each guest detailed maps and walking guides that include helpful tips to identifying birds and native animals. As a luxury lodge, Treetops has an incredible surrounding landscape with seven trout fishing streams, four lakes, riding, mountain bike expedition trails and over seventy kilometers of hiking and walking trails.

Other activities on the Treetops Estate include a photographic safari, archery, fly fishing and a wilderness safari in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. The Great Eco Treasure Hunt leads both children and adults on a mystery adventure into the dense forest to discover some of the natural wonders in New Zealand.

The Treetops Lodge and Estate was recently honored as the only New Zealand Hotel to be recognized in the Australia and the Pacific region in Condé Nast’s 21st Readers Choice Awards. It also was named the Best New Zealand Hotel 2008 in Travel+Leisure.

Arriving home from an unforgettable walking tour, guests can relax in one of the sprawling suites or in a luxury private villa with truly fine wining and dining. Treetops’ talented chefs prepare sumptuous meals using the finest game sourced from the estate and locally grown produce, complemented by an array of premium New Zealand wines.
