Angelus Hut is perched high on the ranges between Lakes Rotoiti and Rotoroa in Nelson Lakes National Park. Alastair Meehan described the area as one of the most spectacular parts of New Zealand he’s seen.

DOC huts are unique places to stay, a refuge from bad weather, or rest and recover when you’re out exploring New Zealand’s great outdoors. Do you have a favourite? Let us know in the comments below!
