Minaret Station Alpine Lodge

Only accessible by helicopter from Wanaka or Queenstown, Minaret Station sits at the heart of a remote glacial valley, surrounded by the wild beauty of the Southern Alps. A working high country farm, home to deer, sheep and cattle, this secluded alpine sanctuary provides a unique personalised experience in a magnificent setting.

SLEEP

Four elegant chalets are dotted amongst native grasses and herb fields, each with mesmerising views across the valley. High country design meets modern luxuries, and a hot tub on the private deck provides the opportunity for idyllic star-gazing. En suite bathroom, sheepskin throws, Nespresso machine and a complimentary mini-bar complete each luxurious alpine hideaway.

EAT

The beating heart of the lodge is the Mountain Kitchen, where the dining is sensational, with gourmet dishes fresh from the lodge’s vast backyard’. Linked to each chalet by raised boardwalks, time spent in the Mountain Kitchen is part of daily life at Minaret, with two lounge areas, wood-burning fires, a library and a well-stocked wine cellar.

PLAY

Experiences in Minaret’s 50,000 acres include heli-skiing for the adventurous and guided fishing for a catch to remember. Delve further off the beaten track with one of the exceptional Minaret guides as you fly by helicopter to hidden wonders otherwise out of reach in this majestic landscape. Gentler options include walking to a nearby waterfall for sensational views and joining a tour of the working farm.
