Logistically incorporating both of these track means you start and finish much closer to Queenstown rather than the main divide if you only do the Routeburn..It traverses some absolutely stunning scenery with soaring mountain peaks, huge valleys shaped by glaciers, waterfalls and sparkling mountain lakes. You need to book to use the huts on the Routeburn so if you want to ensure you have the best weather window wild camping is a better option for those with the experience and equipment. It can be completed in 2-4 days depending on your fitness.
