What people are saying about Milford Track

Our original flight was cancelled due to weather so we didn't have time for the hiking portion of our trip. The difference was refunded. We were moved to a later scenic flight was very enjoyable and offered wonderful views of the mountains. The pilot, Peter, was informative and had a lot of experience flying the route. The cruise offered great views in the sound and they did a good job of commentating on what were seeing. Overall, it was an excellent experience.

Very Good guided tour with experience guide

Walk for 4 hours along the Milford track. Walk was lovely, but could have walked the whole track if we were aware there was 4 day hiking expedition available. However, the route we travelled was good, easy going. Would recommend and to consider the 4 day hike. But book early as they sell out very fast!
