My wife and I recently hiked the Routeburn Track and were overwhelmed by outstanding views at every turn, from beech forests to glacial landscapes. The walk is end-to-end, so you need a lift to the start of the track and from the finish. After weighing...More

The Routeburn Track is great, but since it’s a one-way track, it would’ve costed us an additional day of driving plus the cost of a shuttle if it wasn’t for Trackhopper in Glenorchy. Mike, the owner, was extremely nice and helpful. We rented a camper...More

Walked the Greenstone and Routeburn tracks with Ultimate Hikes, and absolutely loved it (though my knees may never be the same again!) Absolutely stunning scenery, but do your training beforehand - and train with steep steps up and down, and uneven surfaces.

I wasn't too sure what to expect as I'm not a big hiker, more of a city girl! I was totally blown away with the total experience! We booked with Easyhike as they provide a full package including car transfer, camping gear, quality packs, food,...More

For two of us it seemed worth it to pay for car relocation... not that much more than the bus and much more convenient. We used EasyHike and they were great!

When we did the track there were a few fit people that were doing it in a day, looked like a long day but as you say you are fit it is very do-able. The track itself is wide and well marked.
