My partner and I did the Milford Track last week and we loved it! Although it rained 2 and a half days out of the 4 days that we were there we still managed to have fun and enjoy the journey. This was my first ever multi-day hike so I was pretty bruised, blistered and exhausted afterwards. The track and... More

Not much to say that hasnt been said. Fantastic experience. We had 2 days of sun which is unheard of for this track. The Sutherland Falls waterfall detour is a MUST We used Fiordland Water Taxis and Easy Hikes for Transport and car relocation. Fantastic service. The car was waiting for us at Milford when we finished.

We have just returned from walking the Milford Track with Ultimate Hikes. There is nothing bad we can say about this. First the walk: To say it is amazing is an understatement! You hear about it being one of the world's finest walks, but it is so much more. We were lucky to have had good weather for this -... More

Milford Road is the 2-hour road leading from Te Anau to Milford Sound, there is no other way to get to the fiord, so you cannot make mistakes! Being in the middle of Fiordland, a National Park, landscapes bordering the road are pretty impressive, mountains peaks are high, and the closer you get to the destination, the more you get... More

Walked this track as an independent tramper. It was my first tramping experience so I wasn't sure what to expect, but did a lot of pre-reading on the DoC website and various blogs so fortunately I was well-prepared for a first-timer! I was pleased that the huts were well equipped, with bunks and mattresses, flushable toilets, and a mess with... More

Great landscapes, a good and challenging track, specially the third day when we went through the pass. The organisation was excellent we did it with Ultimate Hikes and they were really careful and always in a great helping mood. We were evacuated on the second day because of the heavy rain and the guides took action straight away to assure... More

Absolutely incredible walk!!! Did it with family (kids 14 and 16) and loved every minute of it. Am pretty fit and definitely wouldn't tell anyone it was "EASY". We were independent walkers so carried gear. Huts were fantastic! Very well equipped with gas on tap, cookers and pot belly fire to keep warm. Used Easy hike to relocate rental van... More

We have done many multi-day hikes and this was the best. The scenery is spectacular. The day over MacKinnon pass is the most challenging and coming down is harder than going up. Nevertheless going at one's own pace it is very achievable. One can limit the clothing one takes as the washing/drying facilities are excellent. The guides are knowledgeable and... More

My wife and I and our two children, a 6 years old and a 10 years old completed the Track just before Christmas in 2016. In the absence of existing advice, I would like to reassure suitably equipped and experienced parents that the Milford Track is totally feasible for suitably well-prepared and experienced children, in good weather. On that note,... More

A group of 12 of us - 4 adults, 6 16 year olds, a 14 year old and an 11 year old-walked the track 10- 13 January 2017. We were independent walkers wanting a more faithful hiking / tramping experience. Without a doubt, the most amazing experience for us all. But if we weren't prepared there could have been problems.... More
