At A Glance Departures

Queenstown hikes in style! Walk the world famous Routeburn Track and Ben Lomond Track, and heli-hike in the magical valley of the Earnslaw Burn Waterfalls as seen in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey". Take in amazing views of the hanging glacier, Fiordland and beyond, farewell diverse and spectacular scenery on the tracks, and relax in the privacy of your villa - distinctively luxurious 5 star boutique accommodation at AZUR Lodge with candlelight dinners served.

Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world is your base for this incredible luxury adventure. Once you touch down at Queenstown airport, your guide will meet and greet you and transfer you to the Ben Lomond Track in a luxury car. This famous Queenstown day walk is a 3 to 4 hour easy to moderate return hike to Ben Lomond Saddle (or you may take on an challenge for a 6 to 8 hour hike to Ben Lomond Summit), experiencing magnificent lake and mountain views. Your second day hike is on the iconic Routeburn Track - one of New Zealand's 9 Great Walks and the ultimate alpine adventure. Again, you have the choice of a 4 to 5 hour return hike to Routeburn Flats or a 6 to 8 hour return hike to the Routeburn Falls Hut. The finale of your luxury adventure is a spectacular heli-hike, flying over Ben Lomond, the Richardson Mountains, Glenorchy, and Lake Wakatipu, landed in Earnslaw Burn valley for a hike to view numerous waterfalls. Walk in the footsteps of Bilbo and his company of dwarves under the waterfalls of Middle Earth, and be impressed by the surreal views of rolling high-country farmland and native tussock fields that transform into glaciers and plunging waterfalls.

This is a lodge based walk for the discerning traveller. From your accommodation at the acclaimed AZUR Lodge, travel each day to different tracks returning at day's end to a luxurious lodge room designed to let you absorb the incredible views in chic luxury and total privacy. Overlooking stunning, uninterrupted vistas of Lake Wakatipu, the majestic Remarkables range and Cecil and Walter Peaks, you'll be serviced with evening canapés and dinners focusing on freshness, simplicity, and seasonal flavours.

Combining the best of Queenstown walking experience with the luxury hillside AZUR Lodge, great food and wine, discerning service and the local knowledge of your field guides, this is thoughtfully crafted luxury adventure of a lifetime.

    Changes to Itineraries
    Local conditions may necessitate changes to sightseeing, walking and driving routes, camping and accommodation locations. While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided. The tour operator will not be liable where interruptions to itineraries are caused by weather conditions, technical problems to transport used by the tour operator, industrial action, political or civil commotion or other circumstances beyond our control. We refer you to the conditions regarding travel insurance.

    Changes in Prices
    While we will do its utmost to honour its pricing unforeseen circumstances may mean that prices may be subject to change without notice.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits
    You need to advise Onlyluxe travel and the tour operator on any pre-existing medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability that might reasonably be expected to increase the risk of your requiring medical attention, or that might affect the normal conduct of a trip and the enjoyment of other trip members. Onlyluxe Travel and the tour operator may require an assessment of your medical condition from a qualified medical practitioner. If you fail to adequately notify the tour operator of any pre-existing medical conditions and/or disability, the tour operator reserves the right, at its reasonable discretion, to cancel your participation in a trip at any time, including after the commencement of your trip, with no right of refund if your medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability could be reasonably expected to affect the normal conduct of the trip and the enjoyment of other trip members.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the Onlyluxe Travel and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which Onlyluxe Travel or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure Onlyluxe Travel will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the Onlyluxe Travel and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.
