Every year you vow you're going to head to the majestic hills for a break. Now you have the best possible reason to Escape with this week's magical mountain getaway to the Albergo Hanmer Lodge & Alpine Villa.
Feel like you're on top of the world for two (just $536, usually $1,072), three (just $804, usually $1,608) or five nights (just $1,340, usually $2,680) to the alpine thermal resort village of Hanmer Springs set to the backdrop of North Canterbury's breathtaking Alpine Triangle.
Your spacious suite with warm and eclectic interior has snowcapped views from every window, and double glazed windows, underfloor heating for your toes, orthopaedic super king or twin beds, a sumptuous ensuite, TV, fridge and tea and coffee you can make on tap.
Fill up on an incredible three-course gourmet cooked meal each morning by your friendly hosts, with over 10 choices on the menu for breaking the fast before your day of adventure or relaxation.
Known for its rejuvenating thermal pools discovered in 1859, Hanmer Springs is nestled in the high country basin below the Southern Alps. With a free daily pass each, head to the Hanmer Springs Thermal reserve to dip into the open air thermal and sulphur pools, while the crisp alpine air steams around you. Or slip down the water slides and do some laps in the 25m freshwater pool.
Speed up your heart rate again with a bungee jump off the historic Waiau Ferry Bridge, a jetboat ride or a rafting trip down the rapids. Or for some slower outdoor activities, hike or bike along lush forest trails, and horsetrek through the stunning countryside. In winter, play in the powder of the idyllic Hanmer Springs Ski area where you can ski, snowboard or simply make a snowman.
Then return to your friendly hosts at the lodge, who will share local tips and recipes with you and can book your next day of adventure.
Warning: may not want to return after you've run to the hills on this glorious alpine Escape to Hanmer Springs.
