Day 1: Queenstown – The Divide – Lake Mackenzie

Your adventure begins with a coach ride from Queenstown to The Divide on the scenic Milford Road, stopping at Te Anau for morning tea. You will climb the wide and well-formed track from The Divide to the optional ascent of Key Summit. Here you can sit among the alpine plants and gaze down three valleys from which water flows to three different coasts.
You then descend to Lake Howden hut for a hot drink and picnic lunch, before gradually climbing through lush silver beech forest to the base of Earland Falls, quite a sight in wet weather! You will look over the Hollyford Valley to the ice capped Darran Mountains before descending to the splendid lodge at Lake Mackenzie where refreshments, a hot shower, three-course meal and comfortable beds are waiting.
Distance: 13km (8 miles)
Walking time: 5-6 hours
Meals: Lunch, dinner

Day 2: Lake Mackenzie – Routeburn Falls

You leave the ancient forest draped in moss and lichen and enter the world of daisies, buttercups, gentians and edelweiss. Here you have a full vista of the Darran Mountains across the Hollyford Valley, which slices through Fiordland to the distant Tasman Sea at Martin's Bay. After lunch at the Harris Saddle, you can ascend Conical Hill for a panoramic view of the surrounding peaks.
After walking around Lake Harris you descend into the upper basins of the Routeburn Valley, with the towering mountains above. Spend your final night in luxury at the beautifully-located Routeburn Falls Lodge, where you will be treated to a special dinner.
Distance: 15km (9 miles)
Walking time: 5-7 hours
Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 3: Routeburn Falls – Routeburn Road

Take time to enjoy the dramatic landscape around the falls, before descending to the alpine pastures of the Routeburn Flats. Your guides will take the scenic route through the meadows and find the deepest green pool for you to picnic beside. The track shadows the river as it roars through a magnificent gorge before plunging beneath the unyielding rocks at the Sump.
From here it is a gentle walk through the beech forest to the road end. A coach will take you back to Queenstown, stopping at the small town of Glenorchy on the way.
Distance: 10km (6 miles)
Walking time: 3-4 hours
Meals: Breakfast, lunch
