Grand Traverse

The Greenstone Valley and the Routeburn Track combined in one great adventure

6 days | 5 nights
66 km | 41 miles
Difficulty | Moderate
Nov - Apr

The Grand Traverse is a 6 day/5 night all inclusive guided walk following the Greenstone Valley through to the Routeburn Track.

The Grand Traverse combines the Greenstone Track with the Routeburn Track for 66km of hiking.  There are some very different landscapes on these two tracks with the Greenstone Track crossing large areas of pastural valley floor as well as undulating beech forest.  It can be muddy, windy and wet with stream and river crossings.

The Routeburn Track traverses two of New Zealand's National Parks.  The track enters the Fiordland National Park on day four and finishes at the Routeburn Shelter in Mt Aspiring National Park.

The track is uneven and often steep and rocky.  Much of it is above the treeline and exposed to weather - especially in strong wind and rain.

We advise a strong level of agility, stability and fitness for this walk.

For a more detailed description of the walk, please read the itinerary.
