Routeburn

An indescribably beautiful adventure in Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National parks.

Our Bus Leaves from the Leviathan Hotel, Dunedin at 11am on the first day and  takes us to Glenorchy on the first afternoon, where we stay overnight at the Glenorchy Hotel Backpackers. A good evening meal can be had at the hotel, (your cost).  A cooked breakfast is included with our accommodation. We can pick people up in Queenstown about  4 pm on the first day, and also pick up at Dunedin Airport about 11.15 am.   We spend 3 days, (two nights), tramping the Routeburn Track after the night in Glenorchy. The bus will pick you up at the Divide (which is on the Te Anau/Milford road) at 2pm on the last day and travel through Te Anau, Gore and back to Dunedin later that evening. Please note we are unable to take you back to Queenstown. 

The Routeburn Track is one of the “Great Walks” through Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National Parks. It commences near Glenorchy at the head of Lake Wakatipu, and finishes at the “Divide” on the Milford road. Practically one whole day is spent above the bushline, amongst a dramatic alpine landscape, and the main divide is crossed at Harris Saddle (1280m). In places the track is quite rough, and there are a number of “ups and downs” to extend you. One has to be prepared for cold conditions in the areas above the bushline. This tramp is a classic trip, and the scenery is superb, (given fine weather.)  We stay in the DoC huts on the Routeburn track.  

A good standard of tramping fitness is required on this trip.
