Helicopter-only access is the first clue that you’re in for an epic stay at Minaret Station Alpine Lodge. Adding to the body of exclusive experiences are all-inclusive gourmet meals and individually crafted itineraries that run the heli-adventure gamut. Touch down in an alpine meadow for a picnic, or atop a peak to bike or ski down; take a jet boat across remote lakes and fish for rainbow trout in crystalline rivers. Set at the head of a glacial valley within the Southern Alps, the lodge is composed of four sheepskin-carpeted chalets with on-deck hot tubs; unwind in the main lodge’s cozy library and lounge.
