Just did our first Ultimate Hike trip and cannot wait to join the next one- probably the Routeburn? Extremely professional, well organized, yet personal and with a spirit. Not cheap but definitely worth it if you can afford it. The food and lodges were amazing. And of course, the wacky yet very helpful guides.

We have just completed the 3 day, 2 night Routeburn Track walk & can highly recommend it. Ultimate Hikes are a very professional organisation & provided us with plenty of pre trip information so that we could prepare for our walk. We are both in our early 70s but with some prior training walks coped very well. Our guides Charlotte,... More

The beauty of the entire hike is nothing you've ever seen in any other nation. NZD is now my favorite country and I can't wait to go back. The mountains, the lakes (you can drink from them... More

The trek had the most beautiful sights since the day I got married. As a 60 year old I needed the training I had done. It was a multi day walk that was a satisfying challenge. The best thing was how friendly, fun and professional the guides were. Kelly, Amelia, Moon and Charlotte were personally impressive and interesting, each with... More

From start to finish these guys were awesome. From the staff at our meeting point, the bus driver, guides and hosts at our accomodation were always friendly and nothing was a problem. I felt like we were on our own tramp with someone just close enough to pass on information, help out if we needed and take all the hassle... More

Fantastic way to do a great walk in wonderful countryside. Wonderful food, comfortable lodges after a hard day's walking. Our guides were knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, accommodating, lovely - and any more complimentary adjectives you can think of. They helped to make the whole experience special.

It's hard to do justice with words, describing such an incredible experience. But I'll try. First, a shout out to our terrific guides: Meg, Amelia, David, Ellis. Ultimate Hikes did a wonderful job from beginning to end. We were fortunate to have had five great weather days (how lucky!) and a very congenial group of 47 hikers, which added to... More
