Fantastic experience. We were extremely lucky to experience no rain during the whole 4 days. Top of our 30 days NZ trip. Used car relocation service and everything worked well. Don't forget to book Milford far in advance (it's usually sold out in one day for the whole next season). Combined with Milford boat trip in the end (recommend to... More

If you only ever do one trek in your life, make sure you do the Milford Track. It is absolutely stunning every step of the way. Make sure your camera is fully charged as there are postcard moments almost every five seconds. I had a sore neck from looking up every five seconds and going "wow, wow , wow". We... More

Four day hike. Day one is easy but days two, three and four are much longer. Everywhere you look is a picture. It's beyond description.

We just finished The Classic (Milford and Routeburn Tracks), and we very highly recommend Ultimate Hikes. Because of their stellar reputation, we booked our guided hike with UH nearly a year in advance, and then planned the rest of our NZ trip (5-1/2 weeks) around it. We loved both Tracks... The Milford is such an iconic walk, and starting in... More

Ultimate Hikes is First Class all the way. EVERYTHING was planned out perfectly. They didn't make one mistake the entire 5 days. The only thing that didn't work out was the weather and they had no control over that. The guides were excellent in every way, right down to providing hot chocolate and coffee on McKinnon Pass on a cold... More

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

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
