The mountains are calling...

Enjoy a world less touched by human footprint. This breathtaking 4-night getaway combines the most beautiful hikes, the freshest meals, and the most extraordinary locations where few get to go. Venture into a private sheep farm, and into a World Heritage Park, taking in the diverse landscapes of an ancient beech forest, braided rivers, and glacier-carved valleys.

Experience the magic of the famous Routeburn Track and hike alongside the mountain-fed waters of the Dart River. Visit a 130-year-old high- country working farm set in the spectacular alpine environment, where you will gain real insights into country life. We’ll enjoy some of New Zealand’s most stunning landscapes, including locations used for several well-known films such as Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Wolverine, and The Hobbit.

Indulge in a fireside drink followed by menus that change seasonally and showcase local foods prepared by our world-renowned chefs. At the end of the day, you can look forward to relaxing in our beautifully crafted homestead lodge and your quiet, private ensuite chalet.

Our legendary door-to-door personal service promises to create a getaway unique and memorable, that gives your soul the restorative, wide-open adventure you’ve been craving.
