Home Accommodations Arthur’s Pass Wilderness Lodge

Arthur’s Pass Wilderness Lodge

Arthur's Pass, Canterbury, New Zealand

Arthur’s Pass Wilderness Lodge lies in a glorious natural setting midway between Christchurch and Greymouth. The lodge was built in 1996 and designed to fit naturally into an open forest clearing. Run by a husband-and-wife ecologist team, the lodge is owned by the McSweeney family, which traces its New Zealand farming roots back to 1860. Surrounding the lodge is a nearly 6,000-acre conservation reserve and high-country merino sheep station, a land of mountain beech forest, tussock clearings and moss-fringed streams and waterfalls. Gerry McSweeney serves on the New Zealand Conservation Authority and Nature Heritage Fund and is committed to demonstrating that protecting nature and running a successful wool farm are compatible projects. Accommodations include 20 mountain view rooms and four alpine lodges. Mountain view rooms, all with en-suite facilities, enjoy a splendid panorama over the Waimakariri River Valley and Southern Alps, with full-length glass doors that open to survey the view across to Arthur's Pass National Park. Special touches like flowers, fresh fruit and complimentary tea and coffee facilities enhance a comfortable stay.
