Go 'Glamping' at New Zealand's Luxurious Minaret Station

If you have the money available and love luxury in the outdoors the Minaret Station fly-in campground is really worth visiting. Camping is usually one of the cheapest ways to travel, but in this case it won't be, so start saving your pennies.

This fly-in campground in the Southern Alps is, as you maybe could guess, only accessible by air. The campground has canvas tents but it doesn't have a lot in common with traditional camping. The tents provide private decks with hot tubs, king beds and enough hot water for endless showers. Guests don't have to worry about cooking a primitive meal either; the first class chef prepares the most delicious meals. If you want to get out of the luxury for a little bit the environment of the Minaret Station has a lot to offer: go hiking or fly-fishing, spot wild game animals or experience high country farming. For guests that prefer luxury above the true outdoors, it is possible to discover the Fiorland West Coast by helicopter.

A night at the Minaret Station is available from US $2,878 for the first two nights and additional nights are available at US $1,605. Compare this with an average campsite in New Zealand, which is only US $20 a night. Is the money worth it to you?
