High in the Southern Alps, nestled among majestic mountains and beech forest, is Arthur’s Pass Village. A comfortable two hour drive from Christchurch, Arthur’s Pass offers some of the best unspoilt hiking and scenery in New Zealand.
The hiking/walking tracks vary from a one-hour walk up to the impressive Devils Punchbowl Waterfall, a half day wander along the Arthur’s Pass Walking Track, to a multi-day hike in the mountains.
Arthur’s Pass Alpine Motel, conveniently situated in the village, offers self contained accommodation, complete with your own bathroom and kitchen. Our warm, cosy cabins (some with fires) sleep 2-6 people. All are now fully double glazed to further enhance your stay.
With a cafe and restaurant a short walk from our motel, it is the perfect location to base yourself for some leisurely walking and tramping, or a hike up to Avalanche Peak for a grand view of the Southern Alps. You can even meet some cheeky kea or listen to the kiwi call at night.
