High Country Salmon

High Country Salmon is a boutique, 100% New Zealand family owned salmon farm, situated 3km south of Twizel, and 25km from Omarama.

They grow glacial mountain salmon (chinook or king salmon) in the hydro canal system.

This constant flow of clean water means that the salmon are fitter than sea-run salmon, resulting in firmer flesh and a cleaner, more delicate flavour. They do everything on-site, resulting in the shortest supply chain possible and the freshest salmon available.

Visitors to High Country Salmon have a range of things to do; have a coffee and some delicious salmon-inspired food from the café, feed the salmon (for free) on the floating deck, purchase some salmon to take home from the fish shop, or even catch your own salmon! There is plenty of parking, and the scenery is spectacular!
