There are few, if any, places quite like this in the world. Private, luxury lodge accommodation set in a remote glacial valley surrounded by towering peaks, accessible only by helicopter. Comfortable in every sense, with warm hospitality and world class cuisine, Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is truly an extraordinary location to escape the “real world”.

In such raw and untouched terrain, the architecture was designed to blend into the surroundings. Emphasising the use of natural materials, particularly timber, to ensure it will gracefully weather and age in harmony with the environment. This philosophy extends to the furniture and fittings, where design integrity is paramount, and mother nature is the ultimate judge.

The solid teak DEVON furniture is specially crafted to withstand the harshest New Zealand elements, providing guests with an alfresco dining experience all year round.

Whether you’re dining at the mountain lodge, or on the private balcony of your chalet – you’ll enjoy a local feast with fresh ingredients sourced from the Central Otago basin, Fiordland seafood, and venison from Minaret’s own expansive 50,000-acre working farm.

It is the gateway to outdoor adventure, from heli-skiing to backcountry fishing, hiking or simply indulging in a chef-prepared picnic on a mountain top. “Minaret Station Alpine Lodge provides the opportunity to enjoy some of life’s most precious elements; time, fresh air and open space, whilst creating life-long memories with friends and family.”
