Nestled in mountain beech forest, midway between Greymouth and Christchurch. Wilderness Lodge Arthur’s Pass offers comfort and warm hospitality in a spectacular mountain setting. The lodge has 24 Lodge rooms, an intimate restaurant, lounge, library and theatre for evening nature talks. Discover wild nature in the New Zealand mountains and experience life on our 3,000 hectare nature reserve / high country merino sheep station. Walk from your room into a natural paradise of beech forest, tussock clearings, moss-lined streams and lakes on a network of nature walks. The highlight of the Lodge is a daily programme of nature discovery activities. Our experienced guides will help you to explore nature and learn about high country life. Around the log fire you will make new friends and learn about New Zealand and its people as you plan your next day’s adventures.
You will also learn more about this special place the first Maori visitors called “Te Ko Awa a Aniwaniwa – Valley of the Mother of the Rainbows.”
We are working to protect the special plants, forests and wildlife found on our high country station and surrounding lands in partnership with the Department of Conservation.
