Some highlights of the Great New Zealand Walk
Walk through beautiful native beech forest alongside a crystal clear glacial river to the expansive open meadow at Routeburn Flats, where you’ll enjoy a picnic lunch alongside the Routeburn River. If you are keen on a longer walk, we have you covered. Our trips are flexible and cater to everyone’s needs and abilities. You’ll have the choice to either carry on up to the picturesque Routeburn Falls for magnificent views over the valley and surrounding mountains or soak up more of the views at Routeburn Flats before returning to the trailhead. Enjoy some of the most spectacular and dramatic views in the country. We leave Te Anau and head through to Milford Sound, the Eighth Wonder of the World. There are many highlights along the drive including the glacier-carved Eglinton Valley, the Divide and Homer Tunnel, keep an eye out for the cheeky Kea, NZ’s alpine parrot.We'll go off the beaten track to Stewart Island and Rakiura National Park. Tucked off the southern coast of the South Island, Stewart Island is the smallest of our main islands. A haven for brown kiwi birds, who outnumber the 400 humans on the island, and part of New Zealand’s Dark Sky Reserve, Stewart Island is a paradise of untouched rugged peaks and rainforest. We are met at the helipad by our local Fiordland guide before taking a spectacular flight over the hidden lakes and beech forest of Mt Luxmore and touching down in the alpine area of Luxmore Hut. Panoramic views of the Te Anau basin and the mountains of Fiordland will greet us and our local nature guide will teach you about the unique flora, fauna and history of this remote area.
*If helicopters aren't really your thing, that's no worries at all, your New Zealand Trails guide will be able to take you on a day walk through the forest floor instead.
