This is the version of the walk for independent trampers who walk the entire distance from the Hollyford Road to Martin's Bay or vice versa. This was a very pleasant tramp with beautiful bush and views. Pretty lakes and a back drop of snow covered mountains. The track quality varies from very easy to reasonably challenging with 3 wire bridges.... More

I have just returned from the most awesome few days spent walking, talking, learning, eating, drinking, dancing and meeting new friends in one of the more remote parts of our country. The experience far exceeded my expectations and I feel on reflection as I consider all that our journey encompassed, the cost was very good value for money. The team... More

Hollyford track three day guided trek... Exceeded our expectations... The attention to detail, the quality and knowledge of the guides, the yummy food, the lodge hosts... The dry room, hot showers and beds made up....the beautiful countryside... Adds up to a MUST do.....it promises everything on the website.... Initially it looks pricey... But for an all inclusive except for wine... More

Outstanding experience with a team of enthusiastic, knowledgeable, fun and professional staff. An amazing trip that we will not forget. The botanical, cultural and historical knowledge shared throughout the journey, the warm welcome and nicely presented lodges, excellent kiwi cuisine and the combination of walk, jet boat and helicopter ride was fabulous. I highly recommend this as excellent value for... More

My wife and I joined 11 other souls on this 3 day adventure and fun-filled hike. No rain - yeah!! Because the numbers are small you get to meet and know everyone in the party which is different from some other guided walks (e.g., Milford Track) . It's promoted as an "experience" rather than a "walk" which is true. Excellent... More

The start of the track begins at the carpark approx 1 km along the Lower Hollyford Valley road, where you cross the suspension bridge and follow the river that feeds directly from Lake Marian. The track takes you past some awesome waterfalls then it becomes quite rough and steep at times but easily negotiated. Once at the top the view... More

Having just spent 3 days walking the Hollyford Track on a guided walk with Ngai Tahu Tourism, I can't commend them enough for their professionalism from the time of booking right through to transporting us to and from the track, our guides, the lodge staff and the meals. A wonderful adventure

Our two day adventure was an unforgettable experiance. Part of a small group hiking tour with the fantastic company New Zealand Trails. Our flight down Milford Sound was in perfect weather conditions and awe inspiring. The Lodge at Martins Bay is welcoming and relaxed and the food delicious. At night so far from light pollution the sky is bursting with... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about this guided 3 day adventure. Every detail was perfectly thought out. Our guides, Jackie & Kahu were informative, helpful and loads of fun! The views on the track are breathtaking. The host couples & food were outstanding. The lodging was very comfortable. The jet boat and helicopter rides were awesome. The small group... More

One day of rain and 2 of sunshine. The weather makes all the difference. I will never forget the sunrise over lake Alabaster or the helicopter ride up Milford Sound. But for my wife, feeding the eels was the highlight. The lodges were fantastic and the guides (Hamish and crystal) unintrusive and unfailingly helpful. The only downside - the sandflies.... More
