SELECT YOUR DAY TOUR

Raetihi Lodge has partnered services with two fantastic local companies to offer a selection of Day Tours departing and returning to Raetihi Lodge. Spend the day exploring the wider Marlborough area, then return to relax in your room, or on your deck, before dining with us on the waterfront.

Whether you’re wanting to visit some of Marlborough’s finest Vineyards and do some wine tasting, or take a Scenic Seafood Cruise, or sample the flavour of life in the Outer Sounds aboard the Pelorus Mail Boat, we can make it happen with a day tour from Raetihi. Then return to relax in your room, or on your deck, before dining with us on the waterfront.

INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCES AWAIT…

Available for your enjoyment, we can arrange any of the following adventures for your pleasure. Contact our friendly staff info@raetihilodge.co.nz or +64 3 573 4300, or come and visit us at Reception once you’ve arrived at Raetihi Lodge.
