Karamea Lodge: A Hidden treasure. Discover our spectacularly located lodge situated in the semi-tropical northwest corner of the South Island of New Zealand. Blissfully quiet, bordering native bush More on the warm sheltered estuary waters. Each of our three en suite rooms have their own veranda for viewing the majestic sunsets. Karamea Lodge is a great place to base yourself to do a day walk onto the Heaphy Track or the Oparara Limestone system. Less
