Overview

Our one-day small-group guided walk of the first section of the internationally-acclaimed Milford Track starts with a short coach drive, then a one-hour scenic cruise of Lake Te Anau. The walk sets off to historic Glade House, then crosses a swing bridge over the Clinton River into ancient beech forest. Your nature guide will explain the track's history and point out native birds and plants. Easy walking track (4 - 5hrs, approx. 9 - 11kms return). Lunch and hot drinks provided. Departs: Te Anau
