Words are not sufficient to describe the magnificence of the hiking tracks in Southland, New Zealand. This is true whether you hike them independently or with Ultimate Hikes. But hiking them (the Milford, the Routeburn, the Grand Traverse) with Ultimate Hikes permits you to fully appreciate the incredible beauty that they offer, without having to worry about anything (getting lost, carrying a heavy pack, planning, preparing, or cleaning up after meals,...) and with the camaraderie of the other hikers, a hot shower, and a comfortable bed to look forward to at the end of the day. The guides always have a can-do, no worries attitude, which means they are not only helpful but are also a pleasure to have as company along the way. Back in 2000, my husband and I had an unforgettable time on the Grand Traverse thanks to Ultimate Hikes, and in February 2012 I had another unforgettable time on the Milford Track with my 10-year-old daughter, again thanks to Ultimate Hikes. We are already planning a trip back to NZ in order to do the Grand Traverse (yes, for me, again), and of course without question we'll do that with Ultimate Hikes. We can't wait!
