My name is Ethan Clark. We are a family owned business based in the picturesque town of Glenorchy, in the South Island of New Zealand. I have had a lifelong passion for the outdoors from a very young age and have many years of experience within our world renowned Tourism Industry. I am dedicated to providing you with a unique adventure whether it may be Hunting, Fishing or a Guided Hike amongst our stunning country. Top Of The Lake Guiding takes pride in the experiences we can offer you.

Our Guided Free Range Hunting is an amazing opportunity for you to source your own meat and have full traceability from the mountain to your plate. You will gain an understanding of our respect for these animals and why we have selective management towards what we hunt. Our Meat Hunts are perfect for beginners who want to build their knowledge and confidence in the mountains or just top up the freezer. We also provide Trophy Hunting opportunities on our private free range blocks.

Our Guided Fly Fishing Trips allow you to gain local knowledge and professional guidance on many of our world renowned river systems. We will provide you with a memorable experience regardless of whether you are a beginner or are highly skilled at this sport. We share fishing access to many parts of the South Island that are not well known spots. If you would like to be completely isolated we are able to provide helicopter access to many backcountry locations.

Our Guided Wilderness Photography Hikes are p
erfect for people who wish to immerse themselves in nature. Ethan has an extensive knowledge of our native bush and wildlife. This trip provides you with remarkable photo opportunities and a better understanding of this region. Our guided walks can be catered to any fitness level with the option to access alpine environments by helicopter.
