Wilderness Lodge Arthurs Pass
Why we like it
- Daily guided adventures to discover mountains, rivers and wildlife and a high country merino sheep station
- The perfect place to relax and unwind
- Nestled in mountain beech forest, midway between Greymouth and Christchurch
Make full use of your stay here with days of discovery with your own nature guide, meet the tame sheep and lambs, picnic in a waterfall glade, explore the lake in minnow canoes or experience one of the beautiful surrounding walks.
First experience with A&K. Intended to ask various travel companies for quotes but Vicky (Hamlin) was so good with her suggestions that we did not seek alternative quotations the suggested itinerary was excellent and helped us decide on a balanced and interesting holiday.
