Venture through a natural playground of glacier-carved fiords and emerald river valleys with an exclusively guided day walk on the Milford Track. There’s something very special about experiencing the Milford Track with your own private guide. Take your time, enjoy unforgettable vistas all to yourself and soak up personalized commentary on the track’s history, flora and fauna.
New Zealand’s most famous walking trail, the Milford Track has origins as an overland greenstone route between Lake Te Anau and Milford Sound. In 1888, colourful local Quintin Mackinnon navigated the rainforests and mountain passes to create the route the track follows today. Word got out, and Mackinnon became the track’s first guide, famous for his good nature and scone-baking skills. In 1908, the London Spectator called the Milford Track 'the Finest Walk in the World' - and the rest is history.
While the full track takes around four days to complete, an exclusively guided day walk is the ultimate answer for those who would prefer a shorter Milford Track experience. Enjoy the knowledge and leadership of our experienced and personable nature guides as you explore this World Heritage location. Treat yourself and your travelling companions to a highly personal Milford Track journey – no other company offers exclusively guided day walks on the track.
Leaving from Fiordland Lodge, journey to Glade Wharf, the start of the track. Here we cross privately with the Fiordland Water Taxi a brand new boat, custom-built for passenger comfort. From here your walk begins as you cross a suspension bridge and venture into the beautiful Fiordland landscapes that form the Milford Track. The great thing about this exclusively guided experience is that you call the shots on how far you would like to go – the walk can be up to 14 kilometers long. Enjoy a picnic lunch at the location of your choice before heading back to the boat for the return journey. The section of the Milford Track that we walk is relatively easy going and is suitable for most ages and abilities.
This exclusive package includes transport to and from Fiordland Lodge (private transfer and water taxi), expert nature guide, picnic lunch and refreshments.
