Fern Burn Hut | Mt Soho Station Pastoral Lease
Closest hut to Wanaka and therefore the most accessible on the Motatapu Track, Fern Burn Hut has a reasonable number of daytrippers and overnighters who don’t want to commit to the full expedition.
Another great setting for a comfortable hut. Unless you come in winter where you should note there is no heating.
