Journey to new heights. Arrive by Helicopter. Your hosts, Dan & Christine.
are passionate about sharing our
experience and love of the mountains,
hosting small groups of people in our
handcrafted and cosy hut.

The space
Guests arrive by Helicopter. We offer hosted and guided trips for a unique experience. In winter go ski touring. In summer hike and summit or simply celebrate: Birthdays, anniversaries, achievements, LIFE.
mountainhut is designed and crafted by your host Dan Kelly.

Guest access
The hut is at 1800m on Stoneburn saddle Mt Larkins in the Whakaari Conservation area. We fly from the Glenorchy airstrip to overnight at the hut. Access to and from the hut is by helicopter only. You will be staying in the back country of New Zealand. There are no roads or footpaths just mountains and simple tracks.
This cost of the two flights in the helicopter is included in the price as listed below.
Our pricing works best for a minimum of 2 guests and up to 5.
5 persons in a group is $795 per person
4 persons in a group is $995 per person
3 persons in a group is $1325 per person
2 persons in a group is $1990 per person
1 person is $3975
The hut is run by the host and food is catered. The guide is there for the summer or winter activity you may choose.

Other things to note
note that as we are high up in the mountains and as we use a helicopter to get us in to the hut we are dependent on the weather conditions. You need to know that your trip is still weather dependent. having a weather window is a great idea just in case.

In winter (May until November) mountainhut is in terrain that has significant snow. We can offer a variety of snow activities from snow shoeing, snow caving and ski touring.

In summer mountainhut is surrounded by delicate high alpine flora and scree slopes leading to the summit of Mt Larkins at 2300m or we are able to hike in the area as far as guests are comfortable or have a lazy day with a picnic in the herb fields.

Glenorchy, Otago, New Zealand

mountainhut is unique as access is by helicopter. (This is reflected in the price as helicopters don't come cheaply..) but the experience is brilliant and you get to a place which is remote but safe.
This is a very unusual offering and should be considered as a total experience "which includes helicopter flights, guided hike and overnight stay as a package".

We are passionate about sharing our experience and love of the mountains, hosting small groups of people in our handcrafted and cosy hut. We have lived and raised our family in Glenorchy. Our backgrounds include alot of time in and around our captivating mountains skiing hiking and just being in them. When we are not flying in a helicopter to our hut or hosting in the mountains we are working with our sculpture and design business.

During your stay
WE PROVIDE EVERYTHING BEDDING AND FOOD JUST BRING YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE.
mountainhut is designed for glamour camping (glamping).
The emphasis is on simplicity so you can better experience the raw exhilaration of sleeping high on Mount Larkins with your friends or family.

The toilet is in a separate little hut and the journey there is a chance to see the stars and remember where you are.

The beds have comfortable mattresses & duvet bedding, all linen provided.

There is a wood burner fire that keeps the hut cosy.

Your hosts will manage the cooking and cleaning.

Hosts can sleep in a separate mountain tent so you can enjoy whatever level of privacy you desire.

We enjoy hosting guests in a place we feel very comfortable. For guests whom have not experienced the grandeur and the vastness of the NZ Back country it can be an a new and exciting experience. We accompany all guests, set up the hut, run the hut functions and will try and make you feel as comfortable and as immersed in the environment as we feel.
We can help you do as little or as much as you want.
