The Routeburn Track, one of the Great Walks, links Mount Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks in Te Wahipounamu - South West New Zealand World Heritage Area. Weaving through meadows, lakes and alpine gardens, you'll be rewarded with spectacular vistas over vast mountain ranges and valleys.
The 32km Routeburn Track is managed by the Department of Conservation (DOC). It takes two to four days to hike, staying at DOC huts or campsites along the way. The track can be walked in either direction. Access is at the Routeburn Shelter (near Glenorchy and Queenstown), and at The Divide on Milford Road (near Te Anau).
