Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and professional. The lodges were fabulous with great food. This walk offers not only great walking but jet boat rides and a helicopter trip through Milford Sound. I came away from this trip knowing a lot more about my own country and appreciate how privileged we are to have the Fiordland National Park.

From start to finish this was an amazing experience. Everything was organised and very professional. The hike itself was excellent, with amazing scenery. The guides (Justin and Mikalia) were very informative on the history of the area and attentive to the guests needs. The lodges where excellent and the food wonderful (3 courses each night), you certainly don't go hungry.... More

A two night three day guided walk through the Hollyford Valley. It doesn't get any better than this. The entire experience is an absolute must. From bush to beach, tramping to jet boating to flying we did it all. The knowledge and experience of our guides gave me a true appreciation of this beautiful part of the world. I was... More

The highlight of this three day tramping experience is the stunning native rain forest and ancient podocarps along the way. You can walk it unguided but the knowledge of the guides definitely adds another dimension to this trip. Along the way we learned about the native flora and fauna and Maori and European history of the area. Fascinating! At the... More

This walk is really special, even though the first day can be a little tough carrying your own pack it is definitely worth... More
