Stargazing in the lap of luxury!
An inspiration for poets, musicians, artists, authors, adventures and more recently, filmmakers, the lakeside town of Wanaka is surrounded by sheer grandeur.
Perched 5700 feet above sea level in the Albert Burn Saddle of the magnificent Mount Aspiring is a luxurious chalet.
Access to this remote location is by helicopter and the stay at the chalet is fully guided with staff on hand to provide gourmet dinner and breakfast. Only operating in the summer months, this is the perfect destination for those who have forgotten what fresh air tastes like or how blue the sky can be.
Your journey begins with an overnight stay at the luxurious Whare Kea Lodge situated on the shores of Lake Wanaka. Enjoy a gourmet from the finest local ingredients, and relax and take in the beautiful surrounds and enjoy the lodge facilities. The following day helicopter across breathtaking scenes of the lake and valleys below on your way to this isolated chalet.
This afternoon you can enjoy a high alpine walk in the surrounding mountains.
Later after dinner, sit back and witness the magic of an alpine night sky. The crystal clear air enhances the sparkle of the stars making them gleam like gemstones in the heavens above.
The following day you will return by helicopter taking in more of the glacial peaks and valleys of this World Heritage Park.
Touch of Spice would be delighted to tailor this experience just for you and your nearest and dearest, creating memories that last a lifetime!
