If you enjoy hiking and are in the Glenorchy/Queenstown area, this is THE track! It is pristine and offers the most gorgeous views! Heavily forested area with waterfalls. Amazing trail for short or long hikes.

I did this after the Milford Track with one night in Te Anau in between. Wonderful trails, views, lodging (the Ultimate Hikes lodges where I had an en suite room). Guides do a great job.

We hiked the Routeburn track with Ultimate Hikes. It is a great walk to do and Ultimate Hikes is a great Company to use. The guides and Lodges were first class.
