Spend a day in Mt Aspiring National Park. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery, learn about the unique flora, fauna and history of the area and leave the organising to us!

We'll either pick you up or meet you at the Ultimate Hikes Centre in Queenstown at 7.30am and drive you along the picturesque Queenstown-Glenorchy Road beside Lake Wakatipu.

At Road End, we enter Mt Aspiring National Park and the renowned Routeburn Track. Cross the swing bridge and enter a spectacular Beech Forest. The path is smooth and flat, allowing you to look out for birds as they flit through the trees. Song birds are becoming more prevalent on this stretch of the Routeburn and a special treat is to see the Yellowhead, a rare endemic bird usually seen in small breeding flocks making a lot of noise!

The track follows the Routeburn River as it roars through a magnificent gorge before plunging beneath the rocks. Your guide will take you through this stunning National Park, answering your questions and pointing out the birds and trees you'll see along the way. At lunchtime, your guide will find a tranquil spot to rest and enjoy your surroundings over lunch and a hot drink, before you return along the same track.  Return to Queenstown is approximately 5.30-6.00pm.
