Forget glamping. PurePods are the next best way to head into the wild
One with nature

Glamping is a great solution for those who enjoy being in the great outdoors without having to pass up on such creature comforts as bug-free beds and long, languid soaks in a hot tub. But however luxurious your tent is, you'll still have to head out of your cocoon to witness that majestic sunset. With PurePods, only a glass wall sits between you and Mother Nature — so you can pretty much take in the scene from the comfort of your plush, king-sized bed. Think of PurePods as your own private suite in the wilderness. Perfect for the seasonal misanthrope or budding David Attenborough.

There are currently only four PurePods in the world, all of which can be found in New Zealand. Each of them overlook unique landscapes. The Little River Purepod, sited an hour away from Christchurch, sits high above the Little River township on Banks Peninsula. Fancy waking up to a scene of sweeping vineyards from an organic winery? The Greystone Purepod, located an hour north of Christchurch, is perfectly sited to do just that. With no neighbours to reckon with, you are well and truly alone with nature. Go on a long hike, discover the terrain on two wheels, and take the time to commune with nature. At the end of the day, settle down for a meal with your own supplies or book ahead for a meal package — made with fresh, local ingredients, no less —when you make your reservation.
