If you are a novice at bushwalking and would like to learn a little along the way, try the Trips & Tramps guided walk at Milford Sound. At 5.5km each way, this hike is generally quite flat and is over in around 3 hours. We had Ross as our guide and he was friendly and expert on the New Zealand... More

Did the Ultimate Hikes Milford Track guided tour. The track was amazing from beginning to end. Incredible beech and fern forests, to waterfalls, lakes, pristine rivers, mountain vistas, native birds...not an easy walk as it requires decent fitness and strong legs and ankles.

We thought it may be too much for the kids as companies we contacted did not want to take under 10. Kids smashed the 1 day out and did rob Roy the next day. Track is well displayed and laid out. Need boots and proper gear. Rained, was cold, then warm all in a few hours. Walkers that did the... More

Wow a great track views are great. Lots of rain but still worth every moment. Meet lots of great people being the oldest (69) in the party they made sure I was okay. Heavy rain over the pass heading down was the toughest but I made it. Would do it again.

Wow, where to begin... four days, three nights. Bring rain gear as it's likely to get wet - we were really fortunate and had four days of essentially clear weather. I agree with the reviewer who said book a later boat on the return so you can enjoy the relatively flat and extremely beautiful last day hike out. The huts... More

WOW, this a must do hike!! we loved it as unguided hikers. The first day is a breeze. Almost a letdown. However, after dropping our packs @ the hut on Day 2 we made a late trek and made McKinnon Pass as the skies were clear... amazing views in awe of creation! Did the same the next day with a... More

The Milford Track was completely booked 2 months before our 16-day trip to NZ. We contacted EasyHike and they were able to reserve hut spaces for me and my partner. So Thankful! Plus, they relocated our car for us and provided the food we would need on hike. They made it so easy. The Milford Track is beautiful. The most... More

Did hike in early March, and were blessed with 4 fine and mostly cloudless days, numerous wonderful memories and photos. All the travel practicalities worked well - DOC huts were clean and well maintained, with interesting nightly talks by enthusiastic rangers, boat rides at each end were straight forward and the Easyhike car relocation worked well. Only comment give yourself... More

We went with Ultimate Hikes 5 day guided tour. This outfit is incredibly organized with exceptional guides, lodging and meals. Groups are about 50 people and you can lodge in an en suite room or in a group room. There were washing and drying facilities at each lodge. The walk was incredibly beautiful - rainforest, rivers, waterfalls, birds - breathtaking.... More

It was rainy first couple of days and we missed seeing the amazing view it had to offer. We used backcountry cusine which was light and easy to carry and very tasty at the end of the walk.
