Our Routeburn Track Encounter Day Walk is ideal for people with less time to experience one of New Zealand's best tracks.
We begin with a bus ride from the Ultimate Hikes Centre in Queenstown along the picturesque Queenstown-Glenorchy Road beside Lake Wakatipu.
After entering Mt Aspiring National Park it isn't far to the beginning of the renowned Routeburn Track. There is a leisurely 6.5km walk up the wide and smooth track to Routeburn Flats. At this point, time and weather permitting, there is the option to rest by the river and have lunch in the alpine meadows; or continue up to Routeburn Falls Lodge. The walk is a little steeper but the views make it worthwhile. We return along the same track.
Hours:Daily Departures 1 November to 20 April (except Christmas Day). 7.30-8am pick up from Queenstown accommodation. Return to Queenstown approximately 6.00pm.
