Deep in the mountains and off the beaten path is Minaret Station Alpine Lodge, a family owned hotel in New Zealand. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you’ll be dreaming about it tonight! This is a destination that needs to be on everyone’s bucket list. Minaret Station is the wow-factor experience you didn’t know you were looking for. It will leave you speechless.
Minaret Station is tucked away and off-the-grid; It is only accessible by helicopter, making it a unique experience right from the start. The focus of the lodge is to show visitors the untouched New Zealand wilderness and nature through guided activities, like heli-adventures, heli-skiing, guided fishing, and guided hunting.
Although extremely remote, you will still find the accommodations to be luxurious, the dining options fantastic, and the service to be exceptional! This lodge is part of Virtuoso and we are able to offer the following amenities:

Four brothers currently own Minaret Station. As a family, they grew up on the property after their father opened it back in the early 1960’s. Keeping the theme of family alive, the lodge is welcoming to couples, families, and multi-generational groups. Minaret Station offers unique experiences depending on who you are traveling with and your reason for travel. A crowd-pleaser experience is also the simplest: lying outside during the night and stargazing at a sky with zero light pollution.
Team Ourisman is excited to share this once in a lifetime getaway destination with you. We hope to send you to Minaret Station Alpine Lodge soon!
