The Gillespie/Rabbit Passes trip is widely regarded as New Zealand's hardest guided hiking tour. Following the main divide of the South Island this route has exceptional views of the highest peaks, including Mount Aspiring. Even though this trek is challenging, there is plenty of time to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. No heavy packs needed, accommodation is a combination of beautiful mountain huts and our pre-placed campsites. You only carry your own personal items, no food or tents.
