Arthur's Pass, Canterbury, New Zealand
Wilderness Lodge Arthur’s Pass lies in the heart of the Southern Alps, midway between Christchurch and the South Island’s west coast. The contemporary lodge was designed to offer panoramic mountain views from every window while blending discreetly into the natural landscape. The luxury ecolodge combines high-quality accommodations with nature conservation and sustainable high-country sheep farming for a unique and authentic visitor experience. On this spectacular 4,000-acre property, half the land is dedicated to protecting rare plants and animals while merino sheep graze the remainder to produce super-fine wool.
The lodge is a haven of comfort and sophisticated style, offering the best of New Zealand's legendary hospitality. Twenty spacious en suite rooms have glorious views of the peaks of Arthur’s Pass National Park, while special touches like fresh flowers, fresh fruit and home-baked goods enhance your stay. In the Mount Rolleston Restaurant, fresh gourmet meals feature produce from the farm and provide the ultimate fuel for a day of wilderness discovery.
A network of walking trails over the natural terrain invites guests to go exploring, and varied activities are included as part of your stay. Established and still owned by dedicated conservationists Anne Saunders and Dr. Gerry McSweeney, this innovative property has received numerous awards for its commitment to sustainable nature tourism and careful land stewardship.
