Wow! Milford track was stunning! Loved every part of it! The first day -5km - was a bit too easy and I feel like you could definitely do longer on this day!! There was bad weather when we did it and an avalanche closed mackinnon...More
What a stunningly beautiful place. And definitely must be seen in the rain to appreciate it fully---it is wall-to-wall waterfalls then. The self-catered huts are very well-kept and comfortable. So nice not to have to pack a tent, mattress, or cook stove. Tip for hikers:...More

After 11 months from booking to completion I can say that the Milford track is worth waiting for. The 2 of us did the individual track and it is fair to say it was one of the better things we have done together (other then...More
This truck was stunning! We went at the end of March. Key thing- layer!!! You will add and you will peel off. We went from cold and rainy, to warmer, to really cold, windy, and snow, then to very warm. We got lucky though- no...More
