Location

Often listed amongst the top hiking tracks in the world, New Zealand's Routeburn Track is a standout amongst NZ's handful of signature Great Walks, with a huge diversity of scenery on offer and that offers an easy-to-medium-difficulty alternative to many of the other more strenuous tracks which populate the region. During the course of this Routeburn Track walking tour you'll come across a vast array of natural features and highlights including energetically flowing streams and cascading waterfalls.

Expansive views from the track spread out towards the Tasman Sea on clear days, and the path crosses through alpine vegetation and down into magical forests that are covered in mosses and lichens - many factors of which combined to make this scenery the backdrop of choice for filming this area of Fiordland in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Book this walking tour today and embrace the wonderfully scenic nature of New Zealand!

Itinerary

Day 1 - Queenstown
  • Arrive in Queenstown (hotel accommodation not included), free time to explore or book your post hike activities. Pre track briefing held at Kiwi Discovery, 37 Camp Street at 3pm.
Day 2 - Routeburn Track
  • Pick up at hotel accommodation, travel by bus to the head of Lake Wakatipu through Glenorchy and past Paradise to the Routeburn Shelter for the start of the Routeburn Track. Entering the Mount Aspiring National Park, you have a gentle walk through beech forest and along the Routeburn valley, a short steady climb takes you past waterfalls and up to the first night at the Routeburn Falls Hut. Situated by the Routeburn waterfall overlooking the valley below, it's a stunning location for your first night on the track. Approximately 2½ to 4 hours walk.
Day 3 - Routeburn Track
  • Today you head up over the Harris Saddle where there is an optional side track to the summit of Conical Hill with expansive views across the Hollyford valley and out to the Tasman sea on a clear day. The descent down to Mackenzie hut traverses the Hollyford Valley mountain through alpine vegetation and then down into a 'magical forest' covered in moss and lichen. It's not hard to see why Fiordland was used to film Lord of the Rings. Mackenzie Hut is situated by a lake in a hanging valley, truely photogenic whatever the weather. Approximately 4½ to 6 hours walk.
Day 4 - Routeburn Track
  • As above except accommodation is booked at Howden Hut for your 3rd night on the track. This option gives you more time to take in the views or enjoy a leisurely morning at Lake Mackenzie, or relax around Howden Hut with ample time the next morning to catch a bus to Milford Sound. Approximately 3 hours walk.
Day 5 - Routeburn Track/Queenstown.
  • It's a short walk to the Divide with ample time to take the side trip up Key Summit before catching the lunchtime coach to Milford Sound. Approximately 3 hours walk including the side track. It's a short distance to Milford Sound where you board a cruise to take in the sights of the world famous Milford Sound. Complementary tea and coffee and a licensed bar are on board the purpose built vessel and a picnic lunch is included in your package so you have fresh sandwiches after your walking adventure.
  • After your Milford Sound cruise, your luxury coach returns to Queenstown with a short comfort stop in Te Anau. Reclining seats and ample leg room mean it's hard to stay awake on the journey home

Additional Information

  • There are always other walkers on the track, and people always tend to meet others and group up on their own accord. We do not group people up but you will be leaving with people on the same transport and generally with the same or similar itineraries so you won’t be alone. The huts all sleep approximately 40 people, and are divided up into 4-6 communal bunk rooms. There are no exclusive rooms.
  • The Routeburn and Milford Tracks can be enjoyed by all ages who are of reasonable fitness. Many thousands of people have enjoyed these Great Walks (ages ranging from 10-70 years old). To enjoy the walks you need to be able to carry a backpack with your personal belongings, cooking utensils, food and sleeping bag (see checklist), over mountain tracks from 10-15km or 4-6 hours walking per day.
