The Routeburn track can be sampled as a shorter day hike or an extended 32 kilometre adventure bringing you to the Divide or linked back to Kinloch/Glenorchy via the Greenstone or Caples tracks.
The Routeburn track is one of the Great Walks and all accommodation needs to be pre-booked over the walking season from Labour weekend (end of October) till the end of April. Bookings usually open in June for the next season. Click here to book. All other huts in the area require back-country hut passes which can be bought from DOC visitor centres, i-sites and Kinloch Lodge. If walking outside of walking season facilities will be greatly reduced and safety hazards increase, please check for track alerts with DOC.
Upon finishing your walk, if time is short, Glenorchy is just 10 minutes by helicopter from a landing site close to the Divide, or break your journey in Milford Sound just 35 kilometres from the Divide end of the Routeburn (buses run year round). Car relocations are available so your vehicle is waiting for you at the end of the track. Packages can be put together to meet individual requirements. Contact us for help arranging your hike.
