Catering for all ages and abilities, stops are made to suit people's interests and weather on the day.

Routeburn Track Key Summit Option

For the more active this is walking, hiking or in New Zealand we say 'tramping' at it's best. Ascend up the Routeburn Track en route to Key Summit through lush beech rainforest and into the alpine environment with panoramic views of the surrounding Fiordland Mountains, alpine lakes and deep bush clad valleys. This option is unguided unless the whole group on the day takes this option.
