The Central Otago Rail Trail

Tiger Hill Lodge is proud owner of Luxury Rail Trail Tours, the best option if you want a luxurious personalized Rail Trail Experience.

Other fun things to do here:

  • mountain biking – ask Nick, he has been doing it around here since he was a child
  • playing golf. The local course, which is actually really beautiful, is right next to our accommodation. 
  • horse tracking – for example up to the Poolburn Dam
  • fishing. The Manuherikia River has always been a bit of an attraction
  • gold mining – there was a gold rush here some time ago… there is something left for sure!
  • a good swimming hole on these hot summer days.

Let us know your preferences and we’ll help to create a stay here that let’s you experience the best.


Even though we offer kitchens in all our accommodations, lots of guests prefer to go out for dinner. Omakau is fortunate to have several fine dining options available. Also for the quick and tasty option, there is a cafe-bistro take-away in Omakau. Have a look on our Dining Options to learn more!

The Lodge is right on the Rail Trail providing comfortable accommodation. In the hands of the White family, it is Gwenyth who makes everyone at home with a warm welcome.

Each room has uninterrupted mountain and valley views, and supremely comfortable beds.

You will share the living space with the other guests -not only during the plentiful breakfast, guests often linger to exchange experiences. Part of the charm of Tiger Hill is the good company!
