Located at an elevation of 915 metres, the surrounds echo classic ‘Lord of the Rings’ territory.  Set at the head of a picturesque glacial valley within the untouched landscapes and beauty of the Southern Alps, Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is accessible only by helicopter.

Guests are hosted exclusively, or as part of a group, in one of just four luxuriously appointed Chalets. The individual Chalets are separately positioned amongst native alpine grasses and herb fields, each harnessing unique vistas of the valley and surrounds. Each chalet offers privacy, warmth and the comfort of tasteful, high country design.  They feature sheepskin carpets, king-sized beds, a dressing /sitting room, an en-suite bathroom and an adjoining private deck with sunken hot tub, where guests can relax and recline beneath the stars, in undisturbed privacy.
