This was honestly an amazing tramp! The scenery was absolutely amazing throughout the valleys and on top of Mackinnon's pass. It was quite an easy tramp but be prepared for some rain! The huts were well serviced with good DOC rangers managing them. I would...More

This is truly one of the finest hikes in the world! The track is a spectacular experience with three solid days of hiking through rain forest and alpine passes. Wether you spend the night in the DOC huts or with Ultimate Hikes lodges the track...More

This trek goes along the Clinton River, beautiful clear water along most of the track. There are lots of green mossy trees, beautiful mountains, wetlands, waterfalls (Anderson Cascades was my favorite) birds, the amazing MacKinnon pass..., the bunk houses are cool and although at first...More

You know you are entering pristine wilderness when your guides advise that "If the water is flowing it is safe to drink". Depending on your passion, this walk transports you either to Jurassic Park or Middle Earth. Within minutes of leaving the Lodges you feel...More

My wife and I have just returned from NZ where we completed the Milford Track walk, with Ultimate Hikes. There probably isn't room here to fully describe the walk and the experience, and do it justice. From start to finish, the staff at Ultimate Hikes...More

If you are a novice at bushwalking and would like to learn a little along the way, try the Trips & Tramps guided walk at Milford Sound. At 5.5km each way, this hike is generally quite flat and is over in around 3 hours. We...More

Did the Ultimate Hikes Milford Track guided tour. The track was amazing from beginning to end. Incredible beech and fern forests, to waterfalls, lakes, pristine rivers, mountain vistas, native birds...not an easy walk as it requires decent fitness and strong legs and ankles.

Hi, I have a Milford Track booking commencing 8 January 2017 for 3 people that I would like to change to 10 January 2017. The reason is that when the booking site experienced technical difficulties my family could not access the site for 2 hours and as a result could only book on 10 January 2017. Does anyone have a booking for 10 January 2017 who wants to change to 8 January 2017?

I'm planning to do MT this December solo. Are all river crossings covered with a bridge or do you have to cross any on foot? Thanks in advance.

I did the track in early March. All river crossings do have bridges and there was absolutely no rain when I did the walk but this is probably very unusual. Waterproof boots and gaiters would be good to have just in case.

Hi, We are on a pretty tight travel schedule and want to fit in the Milford track walk. it is 4 days hiking from the brochures, On the last day can you make it back to Milford sound in time for the bus at 3:25pm back to Queenstown or should we stay overnight in Milford and head back the following day?

You can do the trek in 4 days including bus from Queenstown (which you don't need) to Te Anau Downs and bus back to Queenstown on day 4. You would be back in Queenstown around 7.30 pm. That is the way we did it. We finished... More
