Minaret Station

Minaret Station offers New Zealand's premier alpine experience, with guided hiking, fly-fishing, heli-skiing, and hunting amidst the spectacular Southern Alps.


Minaret Station is a 50,000 acre working high country farm, home to some 10000 deer, 7000 sheep and 1000 cattle raised for supply to premium export and domestic markets. 


Beyond the mustering runs, nestled in amongst the spectacular Southern Alps and bordering the UNESCO World Heritage listed Mt Aspiring National Park, lies the luxurious and remote Alpine Lodge. Located at an elevation of 915 metres, the surrounds echo classic ‘Lord of the Rings’ territory.  Set at the head of a picturesque glacial valley within the untouched landscapes and beauty of the Southern Alps, Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is accessible only by helicopter. Guests to the Station are treated to an exclusive and authentic experience framed by the rugged beauty of a secluded mountain landscape and will enjoy a level of comfort and style never before available in New Zealand’s wilderness.


Visitors to Minaret Station Alpine Lodge are welcomed as guests, but depart as family.  The station is owned and operated by four brothers each with an affinity for the outdoors. Together, the Wallis brothers lead a friendly and experienced team, passionate about delivering memorable experiences time and time again.  A team of hosts, pilots, guides, chefs and housekeeping staff pride themselves in providing each guest with an intimate and personalised level of service from the moment the first enquiry is made.
