A Great Walk of New Zealand

The Routeburn Track was named one of the top eleven trails in the world by National Geographic Adventure magazine and is rated as one of New Zealand’s best Great Walks.  This incredibly special place is located in the Mount Aspiring National Park and forms part of the larger Te Wahipounamu (‘Place of Greenstone’) – one of only a few places in the world with UNESCO ‘World Heritage’ status.  The well formed track forms part of an old Maori route from the West Coast to collect greenstone (pounamu), and passes through towering ancient beech forests and fields of moss and ferns. Throughout the walk a variety of landscapes opens up: mountainous peaks; sheer rock faces; alpine basins; pristine lakes; cascading waterfalls; luxuriant forest; turquoise rivers and million dollar views around every corner.

Your knowledgeable guide will point out the amazing indigenous flora and fauna of the area. The forest is a haven for native birdlife: the Bush Robin, Fantail, Parakeet, Bellbird, and Yellowhead.

Our Reviews

Stayed here for our beautiful friends wedding (the wedding guests all stayed here). It was simply awesome! The rooms are beautiful, everything has been thought out fantastically. This accomodation has a great story, and I hope to stay at more places like this in future.
