The area has two-kilometers of river frontage where jet boats can pick up glampers from the river bank and take them on a thrilling ride through the Rakaia Gorge with its dramatic cliffs and glacial blue rapids. Alternatively, guests could take the scenic journey to some of the best fishing locations in the South Island whilst enjoying magnificent views.

On the other side of the Rakaia River from Montrose is Terrace Downs—a world-class resort with an 18-hole championship golf course complimented by a stunning clubhouse and fine dining restaurants featuring high country cuisine and the finest wines in New Zealand. Unique accommodation in South Island doesn't come any more peaceful than this!

To the east of Montrose is Mt Hutt, the largest commercial ski area in the Southern Hemisphere with outstanding views and a wide variety of ski runs for all levels of skiers to enjoy. For the ultimate ski experience, a helicopter can pick guests up from Montrose for an unforgettable day of skiing the glaciers of the Southern Alps with landscape views of indescribable beauty and endless fields of snow—an alpine paradise!
