Unfortunately the track was closed for the week we planned to walk it, so only walked to the first hut both ends. This was our second attempt to do it in the last 2 years, but we will return and conquer it eventually!!! A beautiful...More
Just returned from honeymooning in Sth Island NZ where we walked the Routeburn track. We were picked up by Tracknet in Te Anau - the bus was full and all but 5 of us got off at the start of the Milford....yay no crowds!
The Routeburn is probably the most scenic 'managed' hike in New Zealand. It's less busy than the Milford and IMHO has better mountain scenery (and less bugs). I would recommend the self-guided huts which are excellent. Compared to American style backpacking the route is quite...More
The Routeburn Track is a 31 km long great walk. Start best from the Queenstown side. There s transport from Queenstown (8 am and 12.15 pm) to the start of the track. The first day is 3-4 hours uphill walking to Routeburn Falls Hut. There...More

I used to guide groups over the Routeburn Track. I have hiked it over 100 times and it remains my favourite. I rate it more spectacular than the Milford Track. To me the Routeburn has far more variety. The track takes in valley floors, sub-alpine...More

If not, then I wold recommend not to approach in Jun July unless you are very serious and skilled trekker. We had been in January.
