We will pick you up in Queenstown at 8.00am and drive you along the picturesque Queenstown-Glenorchy Road beside Lake Wakatipu. Beyond Glenorchy we drive through Paradise and at the road end enter Mt Aspiring National Park and the renowned Routeburn Track. Cross the swing bridge and enter a spectacular Beech Forest. The path is smooth and flat, allowing you to look for birds as they flit through the trees - a treat is to see the Mohua (yellowhead) a rare endemic bird usually seen in small breeding flocks plus the native bush robin and NZ's smallest native bird the rifleman
The track follows the Routeburn River as it roars through a magnificent gorge before plunging beneath the rocks. It is a gradual ascent through 130million year old magical world of ferns, mosses, lichens & beech forest. The wide variety of flora and fauna on display is sure to impress. Our guides will also share information about the historical significance of the Routeburn Track and how it was used by Maori and European pioneers. There are plenty of waterfalls to enjoy and lots of places to rest along the river. The trail is moderately paced, rising gradually towards stunning snow-capped peaks.
We recommend that clients wear comfortable appropriate footwear and warm layers all year round.
Wilderness Guided Walks is an all weather activity and rain jackets can be supplied. Tours operate all year round, track conditions permitting.
