Kinloch lodge

At the northern tip of Lake Wakatipu on the western side is the little lodge of Kinloch. To get there you have to drive up the east side of lake Wakatipu, worth it for the views alone, and then hook around the top of the lake crossing over the Dart river to get to the western side of the lake. There’s also a wee ferry that runs between Glenorchy on the east side of the lake and Kinloch. The lodge itself goes back to the 19th century and if you’re planning to do the Routeburn track from East to West it’s a great place to stay the night before you hit the trail. The lodge runs a morning shuttle up to the Routeburn track trailhead as well. The views in the morning, and the breakfast, are definitely worth it. 🙂
