Wilderness Lodge Arthurs Pass
Wilderness Lodge Arthur's Pass is nestled in mountain beech forest, midway between Greymouth and Christchurch.
Discover wild nature in our spectacular mountain setting and experience life on our 2,400 hectare nature reserve and high country merino sheep station.
Walk from your room into a natural paradise of beech forest, tussock clearings, moss-lined streams and lakes.
The highlight of the Lodge is a daily programme of nature discovery activities.
On arrival we give you a copy of our current activities programme, maps and information on our walk network, forest and tussock nature trails. Forget your car for a couple of days and settle in and explore.
Our naturalist guides will help you learn about high country life and explore nature in this special place the first Maori visitors called "Te Ko Awa a Aniwaniwa - Valley of the Mother of the Rainbows.".
You can also explore further afield in Arthur's Pass National Park, Craigieburn Forest Park and Torlesse Conservation Park. Join a canoe trip in our safe, stable canoes on lovely Lake Pearson or Lake Sarah to look for Crested Grebe, Scaup, Paradise Ducks and other wetland birds.
