This national park is probably one of our favourites. It equals most of the European Alps and comes close the spectacular scenery of Norway, Iceland, etc. But without the tourists. We have just returned from 4 winter days, walking around Glenorchy (Routeburn, Paradise, etc.) ....More

It took sometime to drive to the base of the mountain, be prepared to go through unsealed and sometimes rickety roads crossing some streams along the way. Well worth the drive. Very rustic, fresh air, and rugged terrain. Reminds one of a bit of heaven...More
