That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.

Embark on the most scenic fishing trip of your lifetime as you head out onto the glass-like Lake Mapourika for a couple hours. With the help of a local guide, you'll reel in species like brown trout and salmon like second nature, with the majestic Westland National Park in the backdrop.
Discover one of the most scenic fishing locations in New Zealand during this three hour fishing charter. Lake Mapourika is well-stocked with good sized brown trout and salmon, and your expert guides will be there to provide all the necessary instruction and equipment to help you reel in these beauties. You'll learn to use various fishing techniques such as trolling, harling and spinning, and the best part is, if your catch is legal and in season, you'll get to take it home. Whilst you're waiting for that elusive tug at your line, it won't be hard to drift away and admire the 900 year old Kahikatea trees that surround you, as well as the magical snow-capped mountains and glaciers in the distance.
Please note: You must have a fishing licence. Licences are valid for 24 hours at a cost of $21 per person for NZ residents and $34 for non-residents. Licenses are available online from the NZ Fish and Game website.
