Hike across a variety of landscapes by following Routeburn Track, a renowned rainforest route in New Zealand. Most visitors take two to four days to cover the 32 km (20 mi) track, but you can also tackle shorter sections of it before returning to the starting point on the Queenstown side of the Southern Alps. Classified as one of the country's "Great Walks," this hiking route includes several huts and campsites along the way. Prepare for the route's long-distance views by charging your camera, or bring binoculars to see ever farther. If you choose to visit in the winter, remember that the track's alpine sections may require advanced mountaineering skills.
