Location

Minaret Station is New Zealand’s first luxury tented camp, located at the head of stunningly picturesque glacial valley in the heart of the Southern Alps. Surrounded by the Minaret Peaks, which stand tall on the western shores of Lake Wanaka, on the South Island. Accessible only by helicopter.

How to get there

Scenic helicopter transfers are available from Wanaka airport (approximately 15-minutes each way) or Queenstown.

When to go

The climate in New Zealand is incredibly pleasant, with warm and balmy summers and cold crisp winter months with wonderful clear, blue skies. The warmer high-season months of November to April are perfect for outdoor exploration. The colder months of June to August are the best time to ski.

Important Information

The risks to health whilst travelling will vary between individuals and many issues need to be taken into account, e.g. activities abroad, length of stay and general health of the traveller. It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel.
