This was an amazing experience. our guide had a vast amount of knowledge about the area, especially the flora. He went at an easy pace and pointed out anything of interest. Lunch was provided also at Glade House

WiolaKK,Thank you for taking the time to post a review. The section of the walk along the Clinton River is delightful but unfortunately there is no alternative loop track, so you do have to return using the same route. Other customers have found that they...More

Worst experience ever. As soon as we started the track, we were told that the name "the finest walk" was a mistake, that it was meant to be described as a fine walk, nice way to start the day. We were told we would hike...More

I would like to do the entire Milford Track. I'm not sure where to find out about guides/tours/etc. because everything here seems to be a day walk.

I am interested in doing a day hike instead of the full hike on the milford track. I am not sure where the day hike starts and how far you can go up before you have to return back to the boat to return. Do you also get to see the most interesting part of the track or will i wish that i had done the full three nights going from hut to hut. I am planning on going Feb 2016. Ideas on what to expect weather wise? thanks
