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 lodge was designed to offer panoramic mountain views from every window while fitting seamlessly into the natural landscape. The property uniquely combines high quality lodging with nature conservation and sustainable high-country sheep farming—on this spectacular 4,000-acre property, half the acreage is dedicated to protecting rare plants and animals while merino sheep graze the remainder to produce super-fine wool.
The lodge provides a haven of comfort and style with dedicated hospitality. Accommodations include 20 stylish rooms with en-suite facilities. All rooms look out to the peaks of Arthur’s Pass National Park, while special touches like fresh flowers, fresh fruit and home baking enhance your stay. In the Mount Rolleston Restaurant, delicious fresh meals feature produce from the farm and provide the ultimate accompaniment to a day of wilderness discovery.
A network of walking trails radiates across the terrain for guests to explore. Established and still owned by dedicated conservationists Anne Saunders and Dr. Gerry McSweeney, this innovative property has gained numerous awards for its commitment to sustainable nature tourism and careful land stewardship.
