This was a wonderful trek through the most spectacular unspoilt scenery you could wish for. Our guides, Kahu and Bard, were extremely knowledgeable about the trees and vegetation as well as the history of both Maori and pioneers of the area. The walk was not too difficult even though it rained throughout first day through the native beech forest. Mountains,... More

Went on 3 day trek with this company. 2 awesome guides, Kahu and Bard. 15 hikers mostly from New Zealand, and a couple of Aussies and Americans (us). Easy walking, but long distances. Great lodges, great food, boat and helicopter trip. Best of all was the scenery and nature there. Spectacular trip.

This is an awesome tramping experience with professional, fun, informative guides (ours were Crystal and Tex) leading you through some of the most remote and beautiful bush along the Hollyford River to the Tasman Sea, ending with a magnificent heli flight over Milford Sound. The lodges are well maintained, clean, comfortable and cosy and hosts (ours were Emily and Heath,... More

Flew into Martins Bay and tramped to Martins Bay hut in wet weather - this included teaming up to safely cross a swollen stream The next day was magnificent and it was suggested that we make it to the Demon Trail hut as one if the three wire bridges was crushed by a tree - 11 hours later walking in...

I have now completed 3 Fiordland walks and they have all been wet and dry! The latest, the Hollyford experience,was just as super as the others. Our guides, Kahu and Bard were knowledgeable, amusing and friendly. The track was undulating and really not difficult except for our rather wet first day! The 'Lodgees',Sam and David at Pyke and Emily and... More

A sample of wonderful Fiordland scenery and nature to be experienced up close combined with a snippet of NZ history all in one unique package. Great guides, food, huts, all apart from persistent rain, is thoroughly recommended.

In a NZ Holiday which was not short of extraordinary experiences, the Hollyford track was outstanding. The scenery speaks for itself--there is no need to elaborate--go see. What otherwise remains uppermost in my mind is the sheer quality and capability of the organisation and the folks who make the trip a truly memorable experience Our guides (Graham and Crystal) were...

We did the Hollyford from the 21st of Jan to the 23rd and got more than what we'd asked for. Great walk through lush greenery, past beautiful falls with majestic mountains as a backdrop. It wasn't too strenuous but provided a good workout. For a lodge in the middle of wilderness, the facilities were great. The meals were top class... More

We just completed the 3-day Hollyford Track hike. It would have been a beautiful hike, but it rained the entire first day and most of the other two days, so we missed the majority of the beautiful views. Got very wet -- luckily, both lodges have very nice dry rooms. The guides were great -- very knowledgeable with great stories... More
