Our first tramp in NZ during early Spring 2016 was exhilarating, tough, fun, wet, challenging and the first of many more tramps. We took far too much gear and food and got thoroughly saturated during or 4 night/5 days Routeburn/ Greenstone Track tramps. Each day...More

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.

An excellent hike with beautiful scenery, you get to cross the river many times and the vistas of the mountains and down into the valleys is breathtaking.

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 used Trackhopper to relocate our rental car from the Routeburn Shelter trailhead to the Divide trailhead. Worked seamlessly. A great service--and a big savings of time and money. It allowed us to do the Milford Sound cruise the same day we ended the hike,...More

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.
