The trip with Ultimate Hikes was perfect from start to finish. The track sells itself with stunning scenery from the start. Walking through the amazing beech forests will stay in my memory forever. Ultimate hikes guides Moon, Ella,Amelia and Eoin were so supportive, friendly and professional and provided us with a wealth of information about the local flora and fauna.... More

Did the Milford track with the company. While the scenery is the star the military precision that Ultimate Hikes displayed with their tour of it was amazing. Very slick. We were lucky that being early in the season we had a smaller group but if you want to do it with them I would book well in advance. Looking forward... More

This is a very safety conscious guided trip. My husband and I have now done both the Route Burn and the Milford. If you are looking for comfortable lodgings and great food, you definitely get that too. The only downside is, if you want to walk independently, but use the lodgings and enjoy the food, this is not possible in... More

If you're a bit daunted by the thought of walking the track ultimate hikes does ease the experience assuming you have the cash. You really can carry the minimum amount as everything except your clothing is taken care of. You can even wash every night and it's dry by the morning so really take one change of clothing. Soap, shampoo... More

We would come back to New Zealand just to go on another Ultimate Hikes walk. We hiked the Routeburn Track, and the scenery was, of course, stunning. What Ultimate Hikes added was lovely lodges, good food, and extremely hard working, competent, amiable guides and staffers (thank you Blair, Kate and Stefan). The individual guest rooms are pretty spartan, but they... More

We set off with much expectation of our Milford Track hike and Ultimate Hikes delivered in every way. The food, accommodation and knowledge of the staff was world class. You must choose to take on this world class walk with these guys!

Ultimate Hikes are the ultimate outfit. I hiked the stunningly beautiful Routeburn Track with three friends. Everything was perfect - organisation, lodges, food, company and knowledge from the guides, safety. This was one of my best experiences to date and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves adventure and the most amazing views ever. The lodges are stunning and... More
