What to Expect
Travel reference:

Tick this "Top Ten Classic Hike" off the list and get back to nature hiking the Routeburn Track, New Zealand! 

Starting the day from Queenstown, you will drive along the picturesque Queenstown-Glenorchy Road beside Lake Wakatipu. Beyond Glenorchy you'll drive through the town of Paradise, to enter Mt Aspiring National Park and the renowned Routeburn Track. From here you will start your hike, crossing the swing bridge and then enter the spectacular Beech Forest. The path is smooth and flat, allowing you to look for birds - 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 130 million year old magical world of ferns, mosses, lichens and beech forest. The wide variety of flora and fauna on display is sure to impress. Your 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.
