  • We were planning to drive to the Rasberry Creek Car Park and start hiking from there but unfortunately were unable to get there as the heavy rain had made a part of the road unpassable with our old ca...  more »
  • Most overall beautiful park we visited, only rivaled by Abel Tasemen. We did the Rob Roy Glacier walk which gives you much more worthy views of Glaciers than Franz Joseph and Fox. Had I known in advan...  more »
  • It was just too rainy and low cloud cover to appreciate this gem while we were here Jan 2018. This is supposed to be summer, right? What we did do was great, and if we go back we will allow more days ...  more »

  • A world class national park... and you can walk right up to a glacier field.. Parking is easy and plentiful... and the entire region is ABSOLUTELY stunning... Not stuffed.by tourism and development.... YET !!
  • Beautiful view from this amazing and mountainous region! I cannot wait to visit again, New Zealand has just thrown so much beautiful scenery our way it's difficult to rate them againced each other. I would recommend this to any traveler looking for some amazing and remarkable scenery from Lord of the rings. A+++
  • Having visited many national parks myself, I can say that mount aspiring National Park is one of the most breathtaking. The Routeburn track is incredibly well kept and except for a few spots, you may even think it is paved! An evening at one of the Huts is a must, book and pay in advance
  • One of our favourite places but getting too busy. Please make use of the the DOC toilet facilities at Cameron Flat and Pleasant Flat and not the side of the road or bush. Take your rubbish with you. Leave only footprints and take only photos and memories.
  • I did a nice hike over Gillespie Pass and I can recommend it to all. Stayed in Young and Siberia huts. Lake Crucible is worth the detour. Watch the Makarora river. It can be hard to cross.
