Welcome to Blanket Bay

Relax at the edge of a crystal clear lake surrounded by majestic mountain peaks.

Blanket Bay Lodge sits at the north end of Lake Wakatipu amidst New Zealand's finest scenery. Just forty-five minutes from the world famous resort town of Queenstown, this is New Zealand's activity and adventure centre.

During the gold rush of the 1860s miners came to this place seeking their fortunes, first at the Invincible Gold Mine in the Rees Valley and later at "Wyuna" where still exist remnants of over 20 scheelite mines.

Today's travellers come to the Lodge at Blanket Bay in search of peace and solitude from the outside world. The area has some of New Zealand's most spectacular scenery and a vast array of visitor activities, ensuring our guests have plenty of enjoyable options to choose from during their stay with us.

The Lodge lies on the edge of one of the greatest alpine wilderness regions in the Southern Hemisphere – a brief helicopter ride away from the stunning snow-capped Mt Earnslaw Glacier, the beautiful quiet trout-filled rivers of The Greenstone Valley and the dense pre-historic rainforests of World Heritage Fiordland National Park.

Experience the beauty of Southern New Zealand by air
Fiordland is spectacular! This helicopter experience from the lawns of Blanket Bay shows you the best of it, from the highest peak, Mt Tutoko, to the coastal fiords and from glaciers to waterfalls. Stand on the very top of mountains amid breathtaking scenery, touch the ancient ice of a glacier as well as chase the waves on an isolated West Coast beach. See the sights of world-famous Milford Sound, including the second highest waterfall in the southern hemisphere, the Sutherland Falls, and the Mackinnon Pass.

Early morning views over Glenorchy #helicopter   #newzealand   #BlanketBay  
An early morning helicopter flight from Glenorchy, New Zealand - perhaps my favourite place on the planet.
It was minus 15 degrees C when we took off and the wind chill was intense with the doors off the chopper.
