An ideal base for exploring the trails of Arthur's Pass National Park, the lodge is an authentic family-run business nestled in New Zealand's Southern Alps between the South Island's East and West Coasts


Wilderness Lodge Arthur's Pass is set on a 4000-acre working sheep farm and nature reserve, surrounded by the peaks of Arthur's Pass National Park, about two hours from Christchurch. After a restful night's sleep, wake to spectacular views of the mountains and native forest from your guest room. As part of your all-inclusive stay, you'll enjoy a variety of complimentary experiences such as guided walks and farm discovery tours, plus access to the property's network of private nature trails. Dining is another highlight, with the onsite restaurant's daily changing menu showcasing farm-fresh produce and premium New Zealand wines. A great addition to an active South Island itinerary, or as a stopover on the TranzAlpine rail journey.
