Getting to Mt Isthmus
Sitting on a 7000 acre station, the Mt Isthmus villa looks out over Lake Hāwea — which is one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets. Rugged and steep mountain ranges climb straight out of the lake’s shores on all sides, and with some of the clearest waters in the country it really is a sight to be savoured.
You can access Mt Isthmus by vehicle, or by helicopter flying over the nearby ranges before landing at our onsite heli pad.
