Methven is surrounded by the chequerboard fields of the Plains and dwarfed by a magnificent backdrop of mountains. This once quiet, rural village is now a Mecca for sports lovers from within New Zealand and overseas.
Each year thousands of visitors from around the world base themselves at Methven Mt Hutt Village, at the heart of seven ski areas and over 1000 square kilometres of the best Heli-skiing terrain in New Zealand. A stone's throw from the village, Mount Hutt Ski Area receives some of the deepest, lightest, driest powder in Australasia. Also voted 2015 best ski field in the World.
Of course, not all the excitement goes on in the Great Outdoors! Methven has a winter persona as a fun-loving centre of après-ski, and the balmy summer climate lends itself perfectly to alfresco evenings out. With over twenty eating establishments and bars, visitors to Methven Mt Hutt Village can enjoy a wide variety of meals, from the classic kiwi takeaway or New Zealand country pub meal to delicious first-class fare. Fresh vegetables, meat and poultry grown in our region are sure to satisfy even the most discerning diner. Many of the licensed eateries feature predominantly fine Canterbury labels on their wine lists, complimented by many boutique and international beer brands.
All this and more, just 92 kms from Christchurch, Methven is the perfect holiday destination, with all the advantages of a city, but with the added bonus of pollution-free, clear mountain air, breathtaking scenery, wide open spaces and BIG sky, and the friendliest people anywhere!
