About
Trek through some of the South Island’s most inspiring landscapes on a day trip from Te Anau to the Milford Sound. The remote mountains and lakes can be intimidating to navigate on your own, but expert nature guides show you the best trails, views, and waterfalls all in one day on a well-paced series of walks and a scenic picnic stop. An included boat cruise through a fjord and into the Tasman Sea offers yet another perspective.

We just had a brilliant day out with Geoff guiding us down to Milford Sound and then jumping aboard a guided tour of Milford Sound Fiords. Geoff’s commentary was excellent and the sites on the way spectacular. All of us enjoyed the day, including our teenage daughters and the packaged lunch was yum. Def highly recommended. Thanks team

What a great experience we enjoyed with our daughter, son in law and grandies 8 & 11.
Geoff was fantastic tour guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and went out of his way to try and find keas for us to interact with ( they were very elusive that day).
The cruise was brilliant, we got to see dolphins and fur seals and my granddaughter loved getting wet under Stirling Falls with her Poppa.
Great paper bag lunch provided also.
Left feeling very blessed to live in this beautiful country of ours Aotearoa.

Trips and tramps were fantastic to deal with right from the start.
Our guide Geoff was outstanding, so informative going out of his way to make our experience very special.
Thoroughly recommend Trips and tramps as an excellent way to explore Fiordland.
A plus to Geoff our guide.
Many thanks

Our overall experience has been great! We wanted to spend 3 days in Fiordland but weren´t sure about what to do. They helped us with the planning and suggested a full 3-day scheduled trip that would suit us. We finally did Doubtful Sound, Milford Sound and a taste of the kepler Track. It´s been so easy just to not having to worry because they were taking care of everything. The guides were friendly and would provide useful and interesting information on the way. I would strongly recommend to book with them!

Excellent day with Jeff , from pickup at our hotel, through his knowledgeable commentary on the trip to Milford Sound and back. Cruise was great, friendly and informative. Jeff stopped numerous times to show us places of interest and take us on short walks to see great vistas. Highly recommended.

As a family ( 2 adults and 3 children 14, 12, 11 years) we did the Fiordland Great Walk package, 3 great walks in 3 days. It was absolutely incredible, for the entire family, teenager and pre-teens included! We all loved it and would do it again. Our guides were exceptional. They were friendly, welcoming, and full of knowledge which was delivered in a way that was interesting and entertaining. They lead the tramps at the perfect speed for all involved and made the days full of fun and enjoyment and device free! The full t three days were extremely well organized and it was a wonderful experience for all of us with many happy memories. I would highly recommend booking with Trips and Tramps for any option they offer. They are outstanding!

The day of this hike was the only wet day in our 3 day package. When Geoff told us it was imperative to enjoy the rain we were not too sure. Wow! What a beautiful surprise! The waterfalls appeared out of nowhere and were everywhere. Wet feet, yes but all part of the experience. .... he pointed out the native plants and told local anecdotes from the area.
On the boat cruise the dolphins appeared and stayed alongside the boat for around half an hour, the seals were basking (if that word can be used ) on the rocks, unperturbed by our presence. The vistas were amazing.
The helicopter ride up to the Luxmore Hut was a treat before the uphill walk began.
And, the 8kms downhill were hard work but Geoff moved amongst the group to encourage us all on.
Rohann took over for the 3rd day of the package on the Routeburn and encouraged us all up that steep track, showing us the native foliage, tasting snowberries and allowing us a breather!
All in all, a great experience . Everyone was very professional and we would recommend Trips and Tramps to anyone wanting to have a taste of the wonder of Fiordland

From being picked up at the front door of our holiday accommodation to being dropped off at the end the day this trip was brilliant. Andrew our guide for the day was informative and kept us all entertained along the way. It was a very rainy day which apparently is the best day to see Milford Sound and it was spectacular!!
We ordered lunch from Trips and Tramps too and it was delicious. We would so recommend this trip, it is way better than driving yourself as you get Andrew's 2000 + trip experience. He knows all the spots to stop!!

Picked up on time by our driver, Steve, with a clean modern coach. Several stops along the way to Milford to look at the beauty of the area, with explanations as required by Steve. The Milford Cruise - stunning!. Stopped on the return trip for a 5km hike for those keen, and the rest of us treated to sharter walks & items of interest. Thoroughly recommend this company.
