Famous Routeburn Track is a ‘Great Walk’ in Mount Aspiring National Park starts with a gradual climb through a 130 million year old magical world of ferns, mosses, lichens and beech forest. We enjoy lunch surrounded by the grandeur of alpine meadows, meandering streams and majestic snow capped mountains. On the return journey travel along the forgotten paths of the Maori and follow the old Greenstone trails where native birds abound.

Full Day Walks –

Rob Roy Glacier cuts a swathe through the mountainside showing the true power of nature with thousands of years to spare. Your route is scattered with views of mighty waterfalls, soaring cliffs and glacial moranie. Clear views of the Rob Roy glacier can be seen where pieces of ice crash and thunder to the valley floor.
