Harwoods Hole and The Resurgence are both beautiful short walks through New Zealand native forest. At 357m Harwoods Hole is the deepest naturally occurring vertical shaft in the Southern Hemispheres. The Resurgence is a crystal-clear pool where the Riwaka River reappears after three days underground. Both are within 20 minute's drive of Eden's Edge Lodge.
We are a mecca for mountain biking. The region’s Great Taste Trail runs past our gate, with Kaiteriteri Bike Park 30 minutes' biking further along the trail. Our region is ranked ‘Gold’ by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). This is because we offer so many and such a wide variety of trails, from gentle and family-oriented to full-on downhill runs, backcountry adventures and everything in between. We, and Rotorua in the North Island of New Zealand, are the only two places outside America with Gold status.
River and sea fishing
The Motueka River is well known as an excellent trout fishing river. We can put you in touch with a trout fishing guide. Sea fishing charters can be arranged also. If you have your own equipment you can go sea fishing on your own (a licence is required for fresh water fishing). We have fly tying equipment for experienced fly fisherman who like to tie their own flies. You can also go over to Golden Bay and visit the Anatoki Salmon Farm where you can fish for and catch your own salmon. Farm staff will then cook it for you while you wait.
