The harsh and hauntingly beautiful landscapes of the Southern Alps will take your breath away. Mt Potts Lodge is nestled close to the rugged Potts Range at the headwaters of the Rangitata River in Canterbury and made world-famous as the backdrop to ‘Edoras’ in the Lord of the Rings films. Edoras, the fortress city of the Rohan people, found its home among the wild, rocky tussock terrain on Mount Sunday, at Mount Potts Station. Take a breath, take refuge, soak in the scenery and replenish your soul.

Mt Potts Station is an impressive property in the upper Rangitata River. The area is becoming increasingly popular as a tourism destination and we are making steady developments to ensure your time here with us is as unforgettable as the scenery. Travel the inland roads from Christchurch or Ashburton through the Canterbury plains, the largest area of flat land in New Zealand. Dwarfed by the huge Southern Alps is Methven, a popular winter resort and gateway to nearby Mount Hutt ski field.

MT POTTS LODGE NEEDS SOME HELP....

Hello everyone, on the 11/02/2017 Mt Potts Lodge is having a charity day. We are giving the lodge and all its accommodation over for a day and night to a charity called parent2parent. In true Mt Potts spirit we are wanting to make this day as incredible as possible. Therefore if anyone has some special skills such as face painting, balloon twisting or anything else we haven't thought of and you would like to donate some time please drop us a message. Alternatively, we are also asking for food donations, preferably bbq friendly cuisine. If you or anyone you might know could help us out we would be so grateful.

Thanks,
The Mt Potts team
