Great easy hike, we did it to the hut and back to carpark in 2hrs 50min. Mostly flat. Nice scenery

Hiking

Beautiful short 30min walk through the bush to the swing bridge overlooking the river. Went on a cloudy, rainy day and was still people around. Would recommend visiting in the summer to swim in the turquoise water.

Hiking

Nice walk through the forest for most of the hike until the end where you see the mountains for a few minutes. Kind of underwhelming, not too challenging.

Have done this track twice and it's one of my favorites I've done in the whole world (so far). I recommend starting from the Divide end because the views are more rewarding and it's easier to get a ride from a transfer company when you're done since you'll be closer to QT. Make sure to visit Key Summit and prepare to spend some time up there. It's breathtaking too. Highly recommend this multi day hike. You must book a few months in advance. All my photography is on IG.

Super vue panoramique depuis le sommet, ça vaut vraiment le coup ! Préférez le passage Est, moins boueux et humide que le chemin Ouest.

Awesome viewpoint. A lot of mud, it is better to have good hiking boots.

Totally good track but I think it's more difficult than moderate during this winter time because of muddy and icey road, sometimes you need to use hands and feet together.

Track is closed because of a flooding. Went there on 30th may 2020. The sign didn't mention when the Track would be reopened.

Nice track , interesting bird watching , the track level is moderate. Forest path, rocky part, river crossing , nice view during the walk. The way to the hut is quiet long especially by yourself but nice.

Sentier bien sympa et pas très difficile avec vue formidable au sommet sur le glacier et le lac. Bonne rando de récupération après le roys ou l' isthmus Peak.

We were lucky to get this hike. After the storms of February the track was closed. Just before arriving in NZ, they opened up to Harris Saddle as an out and back. A beautiful hike and these trails are amazing. Build to handle a lot of traffic. Worth the money.

Beautiful hike, fairly easy and alongside the crystal clear river. You are in the forest most of the time and you can observe all types of vegetation and birds. Nice "beach" by the river for a picnic. We had wind, sun and rain during the 4 hours hike so bring layers!! Recommend going early in the morning as it gets very crowded.

We only did this hike to the Lake Wanaka lookout because of limited time and it was an easy hike, under 2 hours. A bit of climb after you pass the Diamond Lake. Beautiful view at the top, good alternative to the harder hikes in the area if you can't do those. Could get pretty busy though so better go early.

Hiking

This trail was more difficult than I thought it would be. We hiked the loop clockwise and judging from the return tract down from the peak, I think we made a good decision. Going clockwise up to the peak involved steep climbs. Overall, a nice and diversified hike.

Beautiful hike, better than expected! Some steep inclines and narrow pathways but nothing to worry about. Take the eastern route for the best views

Walking

Easy walk, but you are not here for hiking. You go there to jump of the second bridge. 7 meters. Diving into the ice cold crystal clear water! Do it!

Cette rando est tout simplement incroyable ! Elle commence par des escaliers à monter puis à vous de décider si vous prenez la Eastern track ou la Western track. On a choisi la 1ère...petit à petit le lac se découvre devant vous, les points de vue sont à couper le souffle. Plus vous montez, plus les paysages sur le lac sont grandioses. Au sommet, vue à 360°C sur Wanaka, sur le glacier et le Mt Aspiring. En redescendant par la Western track, vous serpenterez à couvert et longerez des rochers avec par moment le Mt Aspiring face à vous. Si vous ne vous sentez pas de faire Roys Peak, Diamond Lake est une parfaite alternative d'autant qu'elle est peu fréquentée (au mois de mars, sous un soleil splendide, en partant en début d'aprem, on a croisé une 15aine de personnes en tout et on était seuls à de très nombreux points de vue).

Hiking

This trail had everything. It starts with a lot of stairs. But, after that, there’s not a lot of let up. It was a challenge, uneven terrain, gaining elevation, winding through forests. Good hiking shoes/boots recommended, definitely water, maybe some snacks if you plan to make it to the top. And you should definitely plan to make it to the top. Words fail, photos can’t do justice, it’s simply put, beautiful. I went up the east track, which was more wooded and shady, and came down the west track, which was more exposed and with many more drop offs. The sand flys at the top we’re bothersome but not terrible. Basically, what I’m saying is, get to the top, have a sit, and take it in. It’s incredible.
