Routeburn Track Guided Walk
Enjoy a guided day walk from Te Anau to Key Summit on the renowned Routeburn Track, a New Zealand Great Walk. Ascend through lush forest to an alpine environment with panoramic views.
Guided Walk Description
Begin the journey with a spectacular scenic drive along the Milford Road to the Divide Shelter which is the starting point for the guided walk to Key summit. There are opportunities for short nature walks and photo stops along the way.
Departing from the shelter, the walk ascends through lush, temperate rainforest on a well maintained track. The steady climb takes approximately 2 hours at a leisurely pace. A maximum of 12 walks with a Trips & Tramps guide provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the natural and human heritage of Fiordland.
Gaining an elevation of 400 metres, emerge from the forest into the alpine environment, with panoramic view of high snowy peaks, alpine lakes, and deep bush clad valleys. On a fine day lunch is on the summit amidst the alpine tarns, and in unfavourable conditions in the shelter of a nearby tramping hut. After lunch steps are retraced to the Divide Shelter before returning to Te Anau by coach.
What to Bring
Comfortable walking boots/shoes, waterproof jacket, warm clothing including hat and gloves, sun screen and sun hat, camera, lunch (if not pre ordered), water bottle, day pack, personal medication if required, and insect repellent. Walking poles are optional.
