Get into the great outdoors for an overnight adventure in a backcountry hut with spectacular views over the Southern Alps.

Highlights

  • Experience a night "off the grid" in a backcountry hut
  • Reconnect with nature and the great outdoors
  • Enjoy unspoiled views over the Southern Alps
  • Take a break from city-life and appreciate the tranquil surroundings

Fancy taking a break from the hustle and bustle of the city? Want to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature?

This is your chance to experience a peaceful night of being "off-grid", up a mountain with unrivalled views of Mt Aspiring in the Southern Alps.

A 6km walk will bring you from our base up to your accommodation for the evening - The Bob Lee Hut, you will want to bring your camera and be ready at sunset and sunrise for an incredible sight!

The hut features a cosy fireplace with firewood, sleeps up to 7 people, a gas cooker and basic cooking utensils, solar lighting and an outdoor long-drop toilet. There is no mains electricity or running water - however, there is Vodafone mobile reception.

For exclusive hut bookings during summer, (booking all the 7 beds) a vehicle may be allowed to be driven up to bring your groups supplies up to the hut but access for vehicles cannot be relied upon as this is weather/conditions dependant. Please be prepared to walk the 6km from our base.
