Spectacular scenes throughout a magnificent walk in one of NZs best parks. Walked it over 3 days and 2 nights in mid Nov. The track is very well maintained and easy to follow. DOC huts must be booked well in advance and host flush toilets,...More

We had a great time doing the hike from The Divide to Routeburn Shelter in 4 days. We were quite lucky with the weather and the landscapes were gorgeous! The huts are clean and the rangers are great. We had Murray at Lake Howden, Evan...More

We had driven to Milford Sound tour from Te Anau. On our way back we stopped at Routeburn Track and did the Divide to Howden track (3.4km one way). It was amazing. The track was mostly upward slope except towards the end when it was...More

Very efficient well organised service, made getting to and from the track much easier and cost not much more than shuttles. Thanks Mike and Kiyomi.

Most of the tramp was completed in constant rainfall. This meant the grand vistas were absent, but this was an outstanding dramatic experience. If you have a decent level of fitness, you won’t find the tramp too taxing, much of the track turns into streams...More

We did the 3 day walk from Routeburn Shelter to The Divide in late October, first day of the season. It is reasonably challenging but fine for a fit and healthy person. Definitely need proper boots, rain gear, lots of layers. I was grateful for...More

With a friend did the 1 day hike, which is already a big recommendation! I wish we did the full track. From routeburn shelter it's a long way through the forest, next to the river, crossing bridges and waterfalls. The first hut is easy to...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.
