What people are saying about Minaret Station
“This ranks as one of the most unique stays imaginable... an utterly divine location accessible only by helicopter. A beauty and solace found in the utter isolation, a paradise ringed by majestic waterfalls and a superb landscape. The lodge has amazing staff and exquisite cuisine to boot. A day in the Fiordland with your own helicopter and guide should be on every one's bucket list! A stay that you'll never forget!”
"Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is the epitome of comfort and luxury in the wilds of the Southern Alps. Accessible only by helicopter, Minaret Station treats guests to an exclusive and authentic experience framed by the rugged beauty of this secluded mountain landscape. Guests will enjoy a level of comfort and style never before available in New Zealand's wilderness. Guests are hosted in one of just four luxuriously appointed Chalets. With our own helicopter fleet, guests can choose from a myriad of activities in this spectacular environment from hiking on site to sharing in the working deer, beef & cattle farm activities of Minaret Station itself. Our heli adventures allow guests to experience the otherwise inaccessible breathtaking wilderness of the Southern Alps, Fiordland, Milford Sound, the Mt Aspiring National Park & glaciers and the southern West Coast of New Zealand."
