Just a month out, Emily booked Great Walk tickets from someone else’s cancellation. She then started training for what would be her first solo overnight multi-day hike, walking the Routeburn Track – which starts in Mt Aspiring National Park and ends in Fiordland. This episode is packed with so much helpful advice for anyone that wants to hike the Routeburn or any other Great Walk. Emily shares the details of what each day looks like, what to eat, logistics to get you back to where you started and so much more. Her positive and practical attitude towards challenges as a solo hiker are inspiring and encouraging. Emily believes that anyone can do it, all it takes is a bit of preparation and you’ll have some of the best adventures of your life.
