My husband & I had made arrangements for an all-day guided walk on the Routeburn Track. Our guide, Errol, picked us up at our hotel & drove us to the trailhead. He was very informative & easy to be with. He packed a lovely lunch & found a great spot for us to stop & eat. He also came equipped with rain gear for us which became very necessary on the way back.
The best part was Errol, our guide. I am not terribly athletic and he was very prepared for the typical day hike; however, I was pretty slow & when I told him I had probably gone about as far as I should (knowing I had to go back the same distance) he was totally cool, made me feel very comfortable, not at all wimpy.
One of the most naturally beautiful places I have ever seen (can only imagine what the rest of the trail was like) !
