From Queenstown we take one of the most beautiful road journeys in New Zealand to the Western end of Lake Wakatipu where the stunning backdrop of Mt Aspiring National Park surrounded by snow capped mountains lies before you to explore.
The world acclaimed Routeburn Track provides stunning variation in vegetation, birdlife and topography as it climbs 6.5 kms one way, on a moderate fitness trail through gorges and valleys. Walking through ancient Red Beech forest amidst lush ferns lichens and mosses, we follow the turquoise Routeburn River reaching the Flats hut located within a mountain amphitheatre. Time to rest up, soak in the natural beauty and enjoy your picnic lunch listening for native birdsong. This walk enables you to experience the diversity of natural beauty, lakes, river valleys, waterfalls, mountains views and birdlife with numerous photography opportunities.
