The Routeburn

Day One: To the Flats

So here’s a little secret about the Routeburn track, book the Flats Hut as your first night on the track. Sure it means a long second day (we walked through to Mackenzie lake hut on day two) but this has to be one of the most draw droppingly beautiful places to stay. A vast alpine meadow spreads out before you, set amongst snow capped mountains all with a river running through it. There’s a walking track that you can follow up the valley, which we did. Oh and most people skip it, so it’s pretty quiet too…
