Fiordland - Based in Te Anau
Over the next three days we were treated to the “Fiordland Great Walk 3-Day Pacakge” with Te Anau based guides from Trips and Tramps. No heavy packs required here as our group of up to 8 walkers were picked up each morning in the van by our guides and returned to our accommodation each afternoon and given a tasty lunch and snacks provided each day by the Wapiti bakery. While I didn’t get to try too many restaurants here Thai Anau got points both for the name and the tasty Thai food.
Day 1 Routeburn track
While overcast weather meant this was the least impressive scenery of the walks our guides Rohann and Zac were both fantastic , filling us in on interesting stories along the drive and local flora and fauna and allowing plenty of stops along the walk so allow us to catch our breath.
