Routeburn Track Easyhike

ROUTEBURN TRACK

THE ROUTEBURN TRACK

At just 33km long, the Routeburn Track is a unique epic alpine adventure that links two of New Zealand’s National Parks – Fiordland and Mount Aspiring.

One of the most accessible, and well-located of New Zealand’s Great Walks, the Routeburn Track is also the shortest of Fiordland’s Great Walks, and in our opinion offers the best variety when it comes to the scenery. Weaving around mountain lakes, traversing through native New Zealand Beech forests and alpine gardens, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the Southern Alps and get up close to the majestic Earland Falls. Bird watchers are in for a real treat with the cheeky kea, inquisitive fantails and paradise shelducks making regular appearances.

The location of the Routeburn Track makes it ideal for exploring the greater Fiordland and Queenstown regions. With Milford Sound a short drive away, it’s an ideal way to combine your hiking adventure with one of New Zealand’s most spectacular sights.

Easy to follow and with comfortable Department of Conservation Huts, hiking the Routeburn Track independently is a popular and very ‘kiwi’ choice – it means you can enjoy a more personal experience, and at your own pace that’s fully on your terms.

What are people saying?

  • A truly memorable experience. A mixture of weather conditions, but it didn't spoil the breathtaking scenery! I did the track over 3 days, finishing at The Divide. Stayed in DOC huts, that were all very clean. I also chose to use a food package from EasyHike company which delivered to my accommodation in Queenstown the day before my hike. Totally hassle-free, great food options, plenty of food, light to pack and carry. I was very happy. A must-do Great Walk!
