Luxury Holidays At Minaret Station

Accessible only by helicopter, yet open all year round, this alpine retreat is set at the head of a remote and picturesque glacial valley on the western shores of Lake Wanaka. Surrounded by the splendour of the Southern Alps, the lodge boasts incredible natural beauty, abundant wildlife and superb guided activities. From Heli Adventures, such as Heli Skiing and Guided Fishing, to scenic tours, heli picnics and Jet Boating, or valley walks and strolls to waterfalls - there are a plethora of experiences to enjoy. The small and attentive team of staff perfectly tailor the activities, along with providing house-keeping and catering for all meals.

The main lodge has a warm, country-style interior with library, lounge and open fires, serving fine cuisine, whilst each individual chalet has en-suite bedrooms, a private deck with Hot Tub, complimentary Mini Bar, Nespresso Machine and unlimited WiFi. Guests can enjoy private helicopter charters to remote locations, witness spectacular ice-carved fiords, crystal-clear lakes and alpine meadows - quite in addition to admiring the feats of the owning high-country farming family, who manage their deer, sheep and cattle livestock at height. A highlight of any trip to New Zealand, this unique wilderness escape provides a dramatic backdrop for lofty adventures.
