Turn off the highway on to a two-lane road. Head up a long, narrow, twisting gravel-paved driveway. After a 15 minute or so drive, you arrive at a private, peaceful, rural retreat amid forest and foothills. But you won't be roughing it. Your cabin is cosy and has everything you need, including freshly-baked bread for breakfast every morning. In the evenings, you can gather with fellow travelers for an aperitif and canapés before sitting down to a gourmet dinner prepared by your hosts, Clare and Peter, British ex-pats who are living their dream on the South Island of New Zealand. There are hiking trails on the property, including one to the river source that gives the lodge its name. But you're only a short drive to the waters and trails of Abel Tasman National Park, which only can be reached by boat or on foot. Peter and Clare can arrange trips and tours into the park and give you tips on the best trails at Abel Tasman or the adjacent Kahurangi National Park. Great digs and great company.
