Where elves really live? Well, not everything in New Zealand is a set for the Lord of the Rings films, but here again is some of that natural beauty that might make you wonder. The Routeburn Track is a 2 to 4 day trail (32 km/20 miles) linking New Zealand’s Mt. Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks. With majestic peaks, stunning valleys, pristine forests, gorgeous meadows, cascading waterfalls and alpine gardens, the Routeburn draws trekkers from all over the world to its chain of huts and campsites year round. As you marvel at the beauty of it all, it might be time to make that dream a reality and start planning your trip now for some day soon.
