Routeburn Track, Key Summit Guided Walk - Trips & Tramps

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 for an incredible hiking experience.




Begin the journey with a spectacular scenic drive along the Milford Road to the main mountain Divide.

The walk ascends through lush, temperate rainforest on a well maintained track. The steady climb takes approximately 2 hours at a leisurely pace. Your small group, accompanied by a local, knowledgeable, Trips & Tramps guide provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the natural and human heritage of Fiordland.

Gaining an elevation of 400 meters, 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 unfavorable conditions in the shelter of a nearby tramping hut.
