MILFORD TRACK

Our most famous trail, the Milford Track is the jewel in Fiordland’s crown.

When it comes to New Zealand’s Great Walks, it’s hard to go past the Milford Track. Its grand mountains, soaring waterfalls and crystal-clear lakes have made it a bucket-list experience for lovers of beautiful hikes for over 150 years. You’ll see New Zealand’s highest waterfall and journey across suspension bridges and a beautiful mountain pass. Walking the Milford Track is a thrill whatever the weather – sunshine brings picture-perfect views; but only when it rains do rivers of water tumble down its soaring mountainsides; an experience you’ll never forget. Plus, the track finishes in one of the most beautiful places in the country, Milford Sound.

Well-maintained and easy to follow, hiking the Milford track independently is a popular and very ‘kiwi’ choice – it means you can enjoy a more personal experience, at your own pace, that’s fully on your terms.

The Great Walk Season runs from late October until late April every summer.  If you are looking at walking this trail outside Great Walk Season, click here to find out more about walking in 'winter'.



MILFORD TRACK LOGISTICS:

DISTANCE: 53.5 km.  One Way - Transport required

DURATION: 3 nights/4 days on the track, however the first day is really short so it is fine to start later in the day - you don't have to rush.

ACCOMMODATION: Department of Conservation huts (bunks and shared facilities).

START: Glade Wharf across Lake Te Anau - access is via water taxi from Te Anau Downs which is 20 minutes from Te Anau.

FINISH: Sandfly Point where you take a water taxi into Milford Sound.

WHEN TO BOOK: Everything needs to be pre booked, and the track sells out very quickly - months and months in advance. We start taking bookings very early in the year for the following season.

To tick off this beauty please contact us as soon as possible to have the best chance of choosing your ideal dates.

MILFORD TRACK CAR RELOCATION

With your vehicle waiting for you in Milford Sound, you’ll be able to change into fresh clothes, perhaps take a boat cruise or even stay the night at Milford Sound Lodge – the choice is yours! What’s more, the drive along the Milford Road out of Milford Sound is often labeled as one of the most scenic in the world. You’ll love having the option to stop, soak it up, take photos and journey along the road with the freedom of your own car.

$295 per car  - From Te Anau Downs to Milford Sound

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

I was a little leery about using rented equipment. What Easyhike provided was very high quality. No different than what I would have brought for myself. The packs were great.  Dave A, USA

A truly memorable experience. A mixture of weather conditions, but it didn't spoil the breathtaking scenery! I did the track over 3 days, finishing at The Divide. Stayed in DOC huts, that were all very clean. I also chose to use a food package from EasyHike company which delivered to my accommodation in Queenstown the day before my hike. Totally hassle free, great food options, plenty of food, light to pack and carry. I was very happy. A must do Great Walk! Kit Y April 2018

I enjoyed using Easyhike to help me do my Routeburn Track hike. You were so helpful every step of the way, even with my itinerary changes, and it was such a pleasure to have my car waiting for me at the end of this rainy day! I loved the food package you put together as well - so many wonderful things to eat! Thank you so much for everything.  Andrea D, USA

We traveled from California to do the hike - and could not possibly have been able to manage it as easily, if at all, without the amazing services offered by Bobbie and her team at Easyhike. They reduced the logistics of the trip to virtually zero for us: Delivering rucksacks with absolutely everything we'd need or want, from rain gear and sleeping bags to food and first aid kits, right to our hotel the day before the hike. They also arranged to move our car from the start to the finish, so it was awaiting us when we got there. Literally all we had to do was dress and show up. The whole adventure was amazing - and if you have even an inkling that this might be something you'd enjoy, then DON'T HESITATE!! It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience...  David L January 2018
